Why should I pursue a career in Cyber?

Cyber Security is a hot topic and getting hotter! With 46% of UK businesses identifying cyber security breaches over the last 12 months there is a real need for organisations to prepare themselves. A recent survey of the UK’s biggest 350 companies said more than two thirds of boards had not received training to deal with a cyber incident, despite more than half saying cyber threats were a top risk to their business. Statistics like this means that employers are actively seeking Cyber Security talent.

Cyber related salaries range from £20,000 to £80,000 depending on experience according to ITJobswatch.co.uk.

What to Expect?

Candidates will be selected by a panel of assessors to join the Cyber Ready programme. Each candidate will receive access to:

  • A Cyber Security Expert Mentor
  • 12-month access to industry standard learning content
  • CompTIA Security+ and CySA+ certifications on successful completion of the exams

The programme itself is divided into 4 simple stages Application and Screening, Training and Education, Face to Face Cyber Wargames and Ongoing Development. On the most part it is delivered online, except for Saturday workshops.
