A new public-private program wants to ‘marry-up’ cyber soldiers with a civilian career to defend against online threats.

At a time when the Pentagon arguably is losing a battle with industry for top tech talent, the Army is offering companies the resumes of its best cyberwarriors.

This week, in Colorado Springs, eight universities, eight industry employers and various federal agencies will gather to formalize the Army Reserve’s Cyber Private Public Partnership, or Cyber P3.

“Those soldiers see, in some cases, the big dollars in industry and they transition off the active force,” Lt. Col. Scott Nelson, the Cyber P3 program manager, told Nextgov.
