Certified Cybersecurity Traineeship

Our traineeship program warmly welcomes individuals who identify as female, offering an empowering and inclusive environment to acquire the essential skills for a successful and thriving career in the dynamic field of cybersecurity.

The Cybersecurity field covers everything necessary to keep people and data secure: data exfiltration, system hardening, risk management, ethical hacking, penetration testing, physical security and privacy management are just a few examples of the topics covered within this industry. Government bodies, the military, large corporations, and medical institutions are now the sectors that are urgently prioritising cybersecurity, but as cyber-attacks become more sophisticated and the world becomes more connected, more sectors will soon follow.

Computers & Networks

Learn how computers work and how they are connected through computer networks, the largest network being the internet. Soon you will understand what things like CPU, memory, ethernet, ARP, and IP actually mean.

Penetration Testing

Penetration testers are basically hackers that are authorised to hack things. The goal is to find weaknesses in systems so they may be patched before ill-willed attackers find them.

(Kali) Linux

Linux is, just like Windows or MacOS, an operating system (OS). And a very common one at that! Many of the devices you use every day run Linux, starting with almost every web server on the internet and for example - closer to home - your smart TV. Kali Linux is a special distribution of Linux, packed with cybersecurity tools.

Cloud Engineering

Cloud providers offer a plethora of tools and services that organisations can use. Cloud engineers set up systems with these tools and services that are well orchestrated, monitored, secure, performant, and cost-effective.

(Ethical) Hacking

Hacking is illegal in the wild, but in this course, we will do hacking in a contained lab environment. Going through the acts of hacking targets yourself will help you understand how real hacks work and to get a few steps ahead of the actual hackers.

Blue Team - Read Team Training

Running life-like experiments, hacking contests, and test scenarios on IT infrastructure helps organisations find weaknesses in their systems. Blue Team protects the assets of the organisation while Red Team attacks.

Databases & REST APIs

Don't want to lose all your data when your app crashes? Need to aggregate large amounts of information over time? Want to share your data with users all over the world performantly? You need databases! In this boot camp, we'll focus on HTTP and networking, front-end/backend architecture, creating a REST API (server), relational databases and PostgreSQL, designing a data model, relations, migrations, and connecting a web server to a database.

SIEM stands for Security Information and Event Management. It's a tool that helps organisations detect, analyse, and act upon security threats as they happen.

Change Management

Change is necessary, but organisations, and the people in them, are often set in their ways or unaware of the necessary changes they need to make to adapt to new situations that happen around them. Change management is necessary to make people aware of the needed changes, and to help them adopt them.

Technical Leadership: "The CTO Course"

This course is a unique technical leadership program that aims to help senior IT professionals to take the ultimate next step in their careers. A Chief Technical Officer (CTO) is a senior executive responsible for the technical direction and strategy of an organisation.
