The Cyber Impact Bootcamp is a hands-on training platform developed by the elite Cyber-Intelligence Unit of The Israeli Defense Force, veterans of Unit 8200. The program covers a variety of subjects needed to kickstart a cybersecurity career and provides participants with a unique, blended learning experience via digital labs, assignments and case studies. Lifelong learners are given access to the self-paced learning management platform and weekly interactive sessions, with regular mentoring from PwC and ThriveDX cybersecurity experts.
In addition, PwC’s Academy and ThriveDX will cater to students with both technical and non-technical backgrounds. The Cyber Impact Bootcamp for non-IT students will offer education to non-degree, non-IT graduates and non-IT professionals so that they can learn the essentials of cybersecurity. Completion of the 12-week program guarantees a paid internship with PwC’s Cybersecurity Practice.
A second program, the Cyber Impact Bootcamp for IT professionals, will be an 8-week course offered for those currently working in the corporate space who are seeking to boost their cybersecurity expertise within their organization. Post completion, participants will receive a certificate of completion issued by ThriveDX Impact and PwC, in accordance with InfoComm Media Development Authority (IMDA) and The Cloud Security Alliance (CSA).
“The unique program PwC and ThriveDX offers will be focusing on how we can build competent cybersecurity professionals at scale, which in turn can help protect local organizations from attacks and build talent pools that can provide cybersecurity services globally,” said Haresh Perera, Director Technology Consulting at PwC Sri Lanka.
“These bootcamps will give students access to the most innovative and leading-edge education and training solutions, while also giving companies access to more diverse talent that is currently missing in the workforce,” said Roy Zur, CEO at ThriveDX Enterprise. “We’re proud to partner with PwC to tackle cybersecurity’s two greatest threats: the global talent shortage and growing technical skills gap.”
PwC Academy launched their Marketing Campaign for the Cyber Impact Bootcamp with a free webinar with the elite members of ThriveDX earlier this month.
If anyone is interested in taking part in this program or would like more details on how it will impact both individuals and corporations they can get more information from the official Cyber Impact Bootcamp page.
