- Cyberops Training Academy Will Promote Cybint’s Award-Winning Bootcamp Within the Texan Business Community, Expanding Its Curriculum With More Coding Classes
Cybint, a global cyber education company, partners with CyberOps Training Academy, a Texas continued education and training company, to expand its presence in the Lone Star State. Adding Cybint’s bootcamp to its catalogue of educational programs, CyberOps Training Academy will promote the course in the Texan business community, as well as expand its overall curriculum.
The U.S. government is looking to beef up the nation’s cyber defenses in the wake of a number of high-profile ransomware attacks on American companies, including a massive hack involving software provider SolarWinds. With cybersecurity a top national priority, businesses have amped up their hiring efforts, making thousands of openings in the field available to practitioners across the U.S. Filling those is a struggle, though, with the country facing a major cybersecurity talent shortage—part of a larger global trend.

To foster the cyber talent pool in Texas, where over 42,000 cybersecurity jobs were posted between April 2020 and March 2021, CyberOps Training Academy will add Cybint’s bootcamp to its educational offering. The company will also expand the course by adding extra classes that will introduce the students to the foundations of programming. The resulting program will be tailored to the specific cybersecurity needs of the San Antonio area, with the first cohort expected to kick off this October and registration opening September 1st!
Cybint’s bootcamp follows the educational strategy utilized in fast-track military training programs. The course covers the latest cybersecurity practices and approaches in a way that puts the focus on practical hands-on training. The bootcamp comes equipped with a diverse set of over 100 interactive exercises and lab simulations built by seasoned cybersecurity practitioners to showcase real-life incident response to students. Since 2014, Cybint has trained over 10,000 individuals across four continents, with more than 90 percent of its bootcamp graduates landing jobs in cybersecurity shortly after completing the intensive course.

We are looking forward to taking off with the first batch of students eager to join the ranks of America’s cyber-defenders.”
