Summary

“Leaving active duty within the Air Force was a difficult decision to make, but Digital Defense valued the skills I acquired in the military and continuously invests in me with extensive mentoring and hands-on training,” said Kris Trumble, a product manager with Digital Defense who is currently serving a six month tour on active duty as a cyber operations officer with the Texas Air National Guard (TXANG). “We are honored and proud to once again be recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor as a HIRE Vets Platinum Medallion Award recipient for our ongoing commitment and dedication to recruiting, employing and retaining our nation’s veterans in meaningful cybersecurity careers,” said Mark Bell, Air Force veteran and EVP of operations at Digital Defense, Inc. “Through our program, we help individuals make the sometimes-difficult transition from military to civilian life, while making sure they succeed in their new role within the civilian workforce through mentorship, internal and external training and providing ongoing opportunities for growth and increased responsibility.” The HIRE Vets Medallion Award is based on a number of criteria, ranging from veteran hiring and retention to providing veteran-specific resources, leadership programming, dedicated human resources and compensation and tuition assistance programs – with requirements varying for large, medium and small employers. The company reimburses employees for the cost of their tuition, fees and books for educational courses and professional certifications related to their job.“Leaving active duty within the Air Force was a difficult decision to make, but Digital Defense valued the skills I acquired in the military and continuously invests in me with extensive mentoring and hands-on training,” said Kris Trumble, a product manager with Digital Defense who is currently serving a six month tour on active duty as a cyber operations officer with the Texas Air National Guard (TXANG).
