Learn more about the SANS training experience

As part of this programme you will undertake the SANS SEC275, also known as SANS Foundations. What will you learn from this course? We asked Masha from Stereotype Breakers to share her training experience. In this video Masha provides a great overview and answers lots of the questions you might have. You can also view the entire series of videos where she documents her day to day training experience.

“The variety of study methods available on the SANS platform also meant I could study whilst traveling, I listened to the audio clips while driving and read/ watched the content on my laptop or phone. I still find the E books for the courses useful in my day to day when analysing security alerts.” Karly-Jade Eggleton (completed the 2022 Upskill in Cyber programme).

Employment Support

Cyber security companies and organisations will be engaged throughout the programme, many with open vacancies they are looking to fill with graduates of Upskill in Cyber.

Alongside actively interviewing participants during the programme, they will also be delivering evening talks, hosting virtual sessions to showcase their organisations and increase awareness of the industry, as well as lending some of their staff to help mentor and guide you through your programme studies.

In addition, there will also be virtual sessions provided with a focus on developing the ‘soft skills’ of the students. To work successfully in the cyber security industry, this requires seamless teamwork, problem solving, communication, and in some instances, confident leadership skills. The programme aims to help individuals to develop these skills and in turn, improve the employability of all students.  To find out how to support our graduates please email
