Cybersecurity

The Northern Virginia Technology Council has identified five kinds of jobs that are hard-to-fill: big data and analytics; cybersecurity and privacy; data center and cloud infrastructure; network systems and programming and software development.

Cybersecurity professionals are one of the most in demand workers in America. A study recently released stated that the U.S. has 500,000 unfilled cyber jobs due to lack of qualified candidates. The DC Metro Area is ranked number one in the U.S. for cyber jobs and on an average cybersecurity professionals make $120k annually!

We created our cyber program to bridge the gap between demand and qualifeid candidates. We developed 6 week to 18 week cyber program to create the next generation of qualified cyber professionals.
