With the advent of technology like social media and the smartphone, the world’s reliance on Information Technology resources has grown exponentially. But does the U.S. have qualified security professionals to ensure the confidentially and integrity of the data given to service providers?
Professionals in need:
According to the January 2019 report “The Cybersecurity Workforce Gap” by the Center for Strategic & International Studies, the US “faced a shortfall of almost 314,000 cyber security professionals as of January 2019.” It is estimated that by 2022, we will have a shortage of 1.8 million unfilled positions.
We provide the knowledge and curriculum:
We feel the best way to provide a pipeline of next generation cyber workforce is to provide industry standard training, by experienced cyber professionals, at the 9-12 level. Our students are put on a path to industry certifications according to both federal government (e.g. DoD 8570/8140) and commercial hiring authorities. Our program leverages the cloud to provide engaging content and interactive real-world level laboratory activities without the need of expensive equipment.
