MIAMI, FL – Oct. 26, 2023 – ThriveDX, the global leader in cybersecurity and digital skills training, is proud to announce a collaboration with Delta Capita, the financial services division of Prytek, to train new cybersecurity talent specifically for the global financial services industry. Through its Cyber Academy, ThriveDX will provide more than 1,000 hours of immersive learning and hands-on educational experience to a diverse group of trainees chosen by Delta Capita to strengthen its clients’ cyber teams.
Financial services firms in the UK reported a more than threefold increase in the number of cybersecurity breaches to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) in 2023 compared to just one year prior. From January to June specifically, there were more than 640 breaches, particularly targeting the pensions sector. Despite this increase in risks, there remains a shortage of skilled workers available to detect and protect against these threats.
“There is a misconception that financial services firms have robust cyber defenses that are difficult to breach, but the statistics prove otherwise. We’re passionate about helping our clients to reduce this risk,” says Philip Freeborn, Global Head of Services at Delta Capita. “This collaboration with ThriveDX will allow us to provide some of the most talented cyber security analysts in the industry who have received tailored cyber security and financial services training to meet our clients’ needs.”
ThriveDX’s Cyber Academy courses are taught by seasoned industry professionals from top companies around the globe. Learners are provided with knowledge, skills and capabilities in a variety of subjects including network administration, incident handling, forensics, threat intelligence, malware analysis and more. By focusing on training candidates from underrepresented backgrounds, ThriveDX and Delta Capita are working to simultaneously reduce the diversity and skills gaps that are plaguing the entire cyber industry.
“Ensuring access for individuals of diverse skill sets and backgrounds is imperative to bolstering the cybersecurity of businesses across all sectors,” says Roy Zur, CEO of ThriveDX Enterprise. “Together with Delta Capita, we are committed to shaping a stronger financial sector by investing in a cybersecurity workforce that is both highly skilled and diverse, enabling us to effectively confront the ever-evolving challenges presented by the modern digital era.”
ThriveDX has reskilled more than 60,000 learners in more than 60 countries across the globe. Its solutions are used by leading enterprises, universities and government agencies worldwide.
