April 03, 2024

Immersive boot camps provide the in-depth training needed for individuals to transform their careers in as little as 26 weeks. 

MASON, Ohio. – Apr. 3, 2024 — Infosec Institute, a leading cybersecurity education provider and part of Cengage Group, today announced the launch of its first immersive boot camp, an in-depth training program designed to equip students with the skills needed to successfully transition into a career in cybersecurity. With over 448,000 U.S. cybersecurity job openings, the new Cybersecurity Foundations Immersive Boot Camp will provide professionals with the real-world skills, practical knowledge and confidence to land their first job in cybersecurity.

Individuals looking to grow into a cybersecurity career or transition careers into cybersecurity can prepare for an entry-level role in as little as 26 weeks. The training builds a foundation of essential skills, ranging from networking to cloud security to incident response. Students will also learn to work as a team by administering, designing and defending a fictional company's network as it grows into a multinational enterprise.

“We worked with industry partners to ensure students leave these boot camps with skills that match the needs of employers,” said Keatron Evans, VP Portfolio and Product Strategy at Infosec. “With more than two decades of cybersecurity training experience, we understand the unique challenges organizations face in finding qualified individuals. We’re excited to provide a new way for aspiring IT and cybersecurity professionals to upskill and join the cybersecurity workforce.” 

The need for cybersecurity professionals is not slowing down; the gap between the number of trained cybersecurity professionals available and the number needed to secure U.S. organizations grew by 11% over the past year, according to ISC2.

“Bringing more people into cybersecurity is a core part of the Infosec mission,” said Bret Fund, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Infosec. “This comprehensive training provides a pathway for individuals to transform their careers in just six months. They can get into the cybersecurity workforce quicker, start enjoying the benefits of a growing career field — and help make us more cyber secure in the process.”

  • Live virtual classes designed to conveniently fit around busy work schedules
