Workforce Diversity Program Cohort
Monday, October 3, 2022
DescriptionThe CyberWarrior Foundation, in partnership with the Security & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), is creating high-wage career opportunities for historically underrepresented communities, including the underserved, women, veterans, and underemployed individuals. Our mission is to bridge the technology skills and diversity gaps by providing cybersecurity training, employment opportunities, and transitional support necessary for people to gain the knowledge, skills, and abilities for career opportunities and growth. We understand that strength lies in differences, not in similarities, so diversity is our core value, and we actively promote it through the cybersecurity industry. CyberWarrior has developed a training that brings together vocational lab-driven exercises delivered by ethical hackers and industry experts, combined with the hands-on knowledge, tools, and certifications necessary to launch a career in cybersecurity. Further, the content was built using the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) framework and mapped to the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE). Our students have the opportunity to receive 27 college credits, making CyberWarrior Cybersecurity Bootcamp the most comprehensive cybersecurity program today. Our innovative Career Hacks course delivers the soft skills to engage in the “business” of cybersecurity. Moreover, CyberWarrior exclusively connects the students with industry practitioners (recognized CISOs, security directors, and more) to share real-world experiences, “a day in the life” of a Cybersecurity professional, what the student should expect upon graduation, and receive personal mentorship each week. Heather Maxfield will reach to those registered individuals about the cohort's schedule.
