Funded by HM Government, Upskill in Cyber identifies and rapidly re-skills individuals for roles in cybersecurity. After a rigorous application process, 200 individuals were selected from almost 1,900 applicants based on their high aptitude to succeed in a rapid cybersecurity re-skilling programme.
These newly-certified individuals are now seeking a new role in cybersecurity across the UK. SANS would like to invite potential employers to our free-to-attend, virtual Careers Fair, to be one of the first to meet our latest pool of talented individuals. Come along to showcase your organisation and cybersecurity teams and highlight active vacancies.
Students have undertaken two SANS courses:
- SEC275: Foundations: Computers, Technology, and Security
- SEC401: Security Essentials: Network, Endpoint, and Cloud
And will achieve two GIAC Certifications:
- GFACT: GIAC Foundational Cyber Security Technologies
- GSEC: GIAC Security Essentials
This intensive programme has provided students with a solid foundational understanding of key IT subject areas and the essential security skills and techniques needed to protect and secure critical security assets.
Students will predominantly seek entry-level roles in a Security Operations Centre, Cyber Intelligence and Threat Analysis, Digital Forensics and Incident Response, Penetration Testing, Governance, Risk, and Compliance. Some students will bring a wealth of transferable skills from other areas, including developers, engineers, IT helpdesks, and technicians.
