Set to bridge the cyber security talent gap
As a passionate believer in people, technology and lifelong learning, Solista have partnered with Australia’s premier technology training provider, Coder Academy.
Much like Coder Academy’s existing accredited coding bootcamps – launched in March 2016 – the
Cyber Security bootcamp course will involve an immersive and industry-driven learning model. .
Designed for individuals with some previous IT experience (e.g. Cert IV, work experience), the Cyber
Security Bootcamp will be a full time, intensive, 27-week program with a four-week internship in the
The course, generated by Cyber Science Pty Ltd, will cover material such as Hacking Fundamentals,
Python Programming for Security, Web App Penetration, Mobile Security, Infrastructure and
Privilege Escalation Linux amongst other things.
Upon course completion, students will receive a Diploma of Software Development (ICT50715). Students will complete the Diploma as well as covering additional material specifically focused on Cyber Security.
Noel Allnutt, Co-Founder of Solista said: “The non-profit information advocacy group ISACA recently
predicted that we will face a global shortage of two million cyber security professionals by 2019.
With the update of recent cyber regulations in Australia, it is now more important than ever for
organisations to have a resilient cyber security strategy.
“Solista’s collaboration with Coder Academy will educate and arm professionals with the skills and
knowledge that these organisations are currently looking for, helping to bridge the gap between the
increasing threat of cyber-attacks and the predicted talent shortage.”
In the spirit of partnership, Solista and Coder Academy are co-hosting a launch event for Coder Academy’s new Cyber Security bootcamp for IT professionals and students looking to advance their skills in an ever-evolving landscape.
The launch event will take place on the 13th of June 2018. To register and for more information click here – https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/cyber-security-bootcamp-information-evening-tickets-46217164784
