Earn Three Cybersecurity Certifications Around Your Schedule

These Certifications Will Positively Set You Apart From Your Competition in the Cybersecurity Workforce

EC Council – Certified Network Defender (CND)

During weeks 1-4, you will develop a deep understanding of cybersecurity technologies and techniques to defend a network. In this module you will develop a fundamental understanding of the true construct of data transfers, network technologies, and software technologies in order to comprehend how networks operate, how software is automated and how to assess target systems.T

EC Council – Certified Ethical Hacker

During weeks 5-8, you will dive into the types of attacks used by hackers to break into and compromise a network. In this module, you will learn how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and use the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of various target systems.

Certified Cybersecurity Warrior

During weeks 23-24, you will take the skills you’ve learned in the previous weeks and put them to the test in simulated real-world scenarios. The professional development component includes creating security reports and delivering presentations to “upper management.” By doing this you will demonstrate the depth of your knowledge as well as the ability to communicate a comprehensive security assessment to non-technical business leaders.  

Learn More Than Just Technology

IT leaders list the inability to communicate effectively as one of the biggest challenges faced by their cybersecurity personnel. How you collaborate with your peers, how you’re perceived and how you influence the outcomes of the day are critical to your professional advancement. Improving interpersonal skills is just as important as honing technical skills in the profession. The CyberWarrior program offers career development modules to help you become your best self, get noticed, and advance in the competitive field of Information Security.
