New Cybersecurity Training Program Now Available Online

Jun 11, 2021 2:51:38 PM

Cybersecurity is one of the biggest skills gaps in today’s job market. Canada is suffering from a major shortage with thousands of unfilled information security jobs.  

The United States is short about half a million cybersecurity specialists, and experts predict we’ll have at least 2 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs worldwide by 2022. 

Covid-19 has only added to the problem. As a huge segment of the global workforce shifts to work-from-home, hackers are taking advantage of remote network vulnerabilities. 

Meanwhile, many cybersecurity specialists have been reassigned to IT support roles, helping team members get set up from remote locations. 

The global consensus is clear: cyber threats are evolving at a faster pace than IT security teams can handle. We need more talent and we need it now.

Herzing College launched a new Cybersecurity training program to meet this need. It takes just 12 months and it's available online.

Find out what Herzing's Cybersecurity course has to offer.
