About

CyberSecurity Awareness Education–what you really need

What type of courses do you need to to get hired in this lucrative career? How do you obtain the skills to deal with the constant threat from cyber attacks that companies face? This was addressed by a recent salary survey by Information Week’s Dark Reading reports. This may surprise you: 70% of individuals in the Cyber-Security field said that learning certification courses were the most valuable in developing their career. Only 10% said a college degree (and only 5% said an MBA). Many of the jobs in this field have a mandatory legal requirement that you are required to be certified. This means you can get the skills you need to get started and move up in your career that much faster! Learn the skills you need so you can be a valuable and trusted member of their team.

 

Why get certified in CyberSecurity?

Many jobs in Cyber-Security have a legal requirement: According to the DoD 8140 (which replaced DOD 8570) regulation you are required to be certified for certain roles if you might get access to sensitive government data. With so many large companies who do business with the government needing qualified people for these positions, many other companies follow suit, requiring the same certifications even if there is not a legal requirement. Since so many companies use applicant tracking systems to filter applications and resumes, it is imperative to get the certifications just to have your application even being seen! We help you learn about this technology so you can get into this industry.

Do you have a Security clearance?

According to Clearance Jobs, while the number of jobs requiring a security clearance is at an all time high, the candidate supply is at an all time low. There are not enough cleared workers to fill the massive number of open positions. New federal government contracts being awarded, and they typically require two things: a security clearance and a DOD-8570 certification. In many cases the candidates do not exist or they exist in such limited quantities that only a handful of candidates qualify. What does this mean for you? If you have the clearance already, all you need is one of the DOD-8570 certifications (CompTIA Security+, CISSP, CEH, etc.) and you become extremely marketable. It takes considerable time and money to sponsor someone to get cleared which you can save for them.
