Scalable, Tailored Cybersecurity Training

The demand for cybersecurity expertise has never been more pressing. Consider this: a staggering 3.4 million cybersecurity experts are needed globally. It's a startling reality underscored by the fact that, on average, organisations take 23 days to recover basic operations after a severe ransomware attack. Public organisations face a shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals, with 52% reporting it as their greatest challenge. Generative AI and chatbot-facilitated attacks make comprehensive cybersecurity training an urgent requirement.

We provide intensive and scalable training programs that are tailored to meet the specific needs of organizations or regions. Our Cyber Programs offer an accelerated 8, 10, or 12-week program, which can compress years of study into a shorter period. Graduates receive internationally recognized GIAC certifications that demonstrate their capabilities for various cyber roles. Our program design also includes industry introductions and soft skill training to ensure the development of well-rounded practitioners.
