Westminster, Colo. – June 20, 2016 – Coalfire, a leader in cybersecurity risk management and compliance services, was acknowledged as one of America's Outstanding Navy Reserve Employers for 2016. Coalfire was selected from more than 100 employers for the award, which recognizes an exemplary record of valuing and supporting members in the Selected Reserve, the component of the Reserve most readily available for call-up active duty.

Coalfire prides itself on employing a broad range of employees, from Selected Reserve to veterans and military spouses, and is creating training initiatives to assist in the development of their careers. As a leader in the cybersecurity industry, which is predicted to have a talent gap of 1.5 million unfilled jobs, this is part of Coalfire’s plan to more than double its employee headcount over the next five years.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of America's Outstanding Navy Reserve Employers,” said Larry Jones, CEO of Coalfire. “This distinction highlights the effort we’re making to empower and honor the hardworking men and women who protect our country.”

An excellent employer candidate demonstrates the following attributes:

  • Values Selected Reserve employees and is highly supportive of their service, even when called on short notice orders.
  • Promotes a culture of pride and recognition of Reserve service and company leadership gets personally involved.
  • Maintains contact with the Selected Reserve employee and their family members if he/she is on duty for an extended period of time.

To celebrate, Coalfire will participate in the Navy Employer Recognition Event at Naval Station Norfolk in Norfolk, VA on June 24 to learn about current Navy operations and tour Navy aircrafts, ships, and other hardware units. Coalfire will be hosted by the Chief of Navy Reserve; Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command; and the Virginia Committee of Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
