Building upon prior success, this new training program will provide aspiring professionals with access to digital skills and an information security mindset necessary to help them prepare for well-paying jobs as security analysts, with no technical prerequisites required.
“This course is the first of its kind as it addresses the needs of the industry, employers and individuals looking to start their career in cybersecurity,” said Jackie Flores-Bochner, Senior Manager for Cyber & Information Security Risk Management with Johnson & Johnson. “The shortage of talent is widely known, but few are doing what is needed to address it. I’m excited to see that Correlation One has designed a course that enables our Fellows to secure entry-level jobs in cybersecurity. It's a game-changer for all."
“We collaborated closely with industry experts to create a custom training track to help address the cybersecurity skills gap, so that the employees could prepare for fulfilling careers and companies can help address their talent needs,” said Sham Mustafa, Correlation One’s Co-Founder and Co-CEO.
“Cybersecurity is a top priority for modern enterprises and spending is projected to reach $170 billion in 2022,” added Rasheed Sabar, also a Correlation One Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “As this need has grown since the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for qualified cybersecurity professionals has also grown. We’re excited to nurture talent from nontraditional educational backgrounds to transition into fulfilling careers in this industry.”
The initiative is distinguished from programs offered by other providers in that it is offered 100% free to learners, thanks to our Employer Partners.
As a technology company with a mission to create equal access to the jobs of tomorrow, Correlation One believes that technical skills are crucial for the future of work — and fundamental to long-term business success.
“We’re equally committed to helping talent from traditionally underrepresented groups [Black, Women, Hispanic/Latinx, LGBTQ+, Veterans, etc.] acquire knowledge necessary to advance their careers in the cybersecurity field,” said Mustafa.
“Through our innovative training programs,” noted Sabar, “we unlock potential for individuals and companies around the world. And we’re actively building partnerships with forward-thinking corporations and governments that realize upskilling today’s talent is a winning strategy for both employees and employers.”
