Student costs will be fully funded via government grants from the Israeli Innovation Authority.
TEL AVIV – August 7, 2023 – ThriveDX, the leader in cybersecurity and digital skills training, is proud to announce the graduation of the first round of students from the CyberBiz Academy, a first-of-its-kind training program designed specifically for candidates seeking to kickstart a career in the business sector of cybersecurity. This training, which will be fully funded for students by the Israeli Innovation Authority, includes two weeks of theoretical learning followed by four weeks of hands-on, practical experience working in different departments at ThriveDX.
Students will leave the program fully prepared to enter business development roles across the cyber industry including positions as sales development representatives, business development representatives, customer success managers and account managers.
“With the CyberBiz Academy, we are putting a focus on an area of the industry that simply does not get enough attention. Business development and customer-facing roles are crucial to the future of cybersecurity, but many jobs remain unfilled and candidates without prior experience find it difficult to break into the industry,” says Roy Zur, CEO of ThriveDX Enterprise.
“ThriveDX is leading the way with the first training program designed solely for the business side of cyber. We’re proud to collaborate with the Israeli Innovation Authority to make this training accessible to everyone during these increasingly challenging economic times.”
Coursework at the CyberBiz Academy includes classes on the customer life cycle, case and escalation management, cold call techniques, and creative outbound strategies among others.
“The CyberBiz Academy is providing trainees with a jumping-off point for a new career in a field that is in desperate need of new talent right here in Israel,” said Rotem Green, Head of Projects at ThriveDX Enterprise. “We couldn’t be more excited for our graduates, and we can’t wait to celebrate their future successes.”
“The opportunity to participate in this program was truly incredible, as it provided me with specialized training and cutting-edge knowledge in the cyber industry,” said Nicole Karlin, a CyberBiz Academy graduate who recently immigrated to Israel from Argentina. “Through interactive workshops and mentorship, I gained invaluable insights into the latest cybersecurity trends and best practices, enabling me to better understand and cater to the unique needs of my future clients.”
