Macedonia Cybersecurity Bootcamp

Miami, FL – July 6, 2023 –  ThriveDX, the leader in cybersecurity and digital skills training, is pleased to celebrate the graduation of its first generation of cybersecurity bootcamp graduates in Macedonia. This milestone was made possible through a partnership with the American University of Europe – FON, a private university headquartered in North Macedonia.

Selected candidates attended six months of training, including 480 hours of theoretical and practical learning lessons adhering to globally recognized cybersecurity education frameworks such as the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) and National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). Upon completion, each graduate received a university certification, which is internationally recognized and qualifies them to work in five different professional roles across the industry, including network operations specialists, cyber incident response specialists, cyber forensic analysts and cyber infrastructure specialists.

“This is a special milestone for us as it marks our first formal cybersecurity bootcamp ever organized in Macedonia,” said Roy Zur, CEO of ThriveDX Enterprise. “We’re especially proud to partner with the American University of Europe – FON in their quest to become a hub for training in the industry and one of the only institutions of higher education in their region offering this type of advanced training.”
