KGX is the corporate training and continuing education division of Kettering University and has been added as a new division under Kettering Global.
One of the highlights of KGX’s upcoming offerings is the CYBINT Cybersecurity Bootcamp. The Cybersecurity Bootcamp, through KetteringGlobalX, powered by Cybint, is an accelerated training program designed to prepare those with little to no background in IT, for entry-level jobs in cybersecurity, a highly in-demand and lucrative career path.
The CYBINT Cybersecurity Bootcamp, developed with military training methodologies, includes 60 unique labs, over 100 hands-on learning activities, and is designed to focus on the skills specifically sought by employers.
The material in this course is curated expertly to provide you with technical knowledge, as well as other essential skills, necessary for a successful career in cybersecurity.
The Bootcamp, developed under the principle of “everything you need to know, and only what you need to know”, highlights a streamlined curriculum that focuses on teaching participants the specific skills needed for the current job market.
Additionally, participants have ongoing access to Cybint’s online learning platform after graduation, including content updates featuring emerging cyber threats and tools and techniques to mitigate them.
A Blended Model
Our unique, blended model combines the best aspects of both in-person and self-paced learning. A facilitator, whose role is to support your learning experience, leads our Bootcamp, and our online platform allows you to practice and learn at your own pace.
Another benefit of this program is the cohort-based concept provides a supportive community environment maximizing engagement.
The CYBINT Cybersecurity Bootcamp is comprised of 480 hours of best-in-class content delivered in an accelerated format. This part-time, 6-month program includes classes that meet virtually, twice a week, for 4 hours each day.
Additionally, participants are expected to complete approximately 12 hours of homework each week.
In March of 2021, The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center released its annual report. The report included information from “791,790 complaints of suspected internet crime, an increase of more than 300,000 complaints from 2019 with reported losses exceeding 4.2 billion dollars” (FBI 2021, para. 1).
Alarming experts even more than the increasing number of complaints is the increasing level of sophistication of the threats which is particularly due to the application of emerging technologies such as machine learning, and artificial intelligence (Moore & Oguntoye, 2021).
With the rate of cyber-attacks reaching record highs, there is an urgent need for qualified professionals in the field of cybersecurity.
The field currently has 0% unemployment and forecasts 350% job growth throughout 2021 (Morgan, 2019). This statistic virtually ensures your opportunities for a long and lucrative career.
With plentiful opportunities and competitive compensation, an accelerated Cybersecurity Bootcamp is the best way to gain the necessary skills for a new and profitable career.
What Types of Cybersecurity Jobs Can I Get Post-Bootcamp?
