How Does It Work?

Sourcing Hidden Talent

Community and mentor partners help review and nominate candidates.

A short informational session and workshop is conducted and interested participants are assessed to ensure the greatest chance of success.

Once complete, a diverse pool of talent is set to move on to the next phase.

Foundational Training

Training begins with foundational network and security concepts.

Participants will learn about the internet, a brief history, and important elements necessary for making sense of security tasks.

Business concepts and relevant soft skills key to success in security roles are also introduced.

Work-Based Learning

Learn cyber security tasks by doing it just like the experts.

We leverage our network of hiring partners and mentors to provide real world scenarios.

Industry experts, such as CISOs and Security Engineers, immerse participants through hands-on projects.

Paid Work Experience

Get a valuable component in securing a cyber job: work experience.

We don't offer courses if we can't provide paid work experience to top performers through our partners.

In a world where experience is key, a security project on your résumé can make a difference.
