Information Security Professionals
In our society, the highest paid people are those who know more than the average. In the knowledge economy, information is a critical asset. Federal Government, State Agencies and corporate organizations by law are to ensure that their Information and Information Systems (Assets) are protected against unauthorized access, unauthorized modification and the readiness of information as and when they are needed. With the arrival of “Anonymous” (Group of IT Hacktivist known for its Cyber-attacks) the trend is to hire more IT Security Professionals to prevent company’s brand drag through the mud.
It is in the light of the above that Information Security Professionals are needed and sought after to work and assist organizations with their skill set to provide the level of assurance that critical assets are secured. Many more IT workers with the requisite skills set are needed to fill the vacuum. As a matter of fact, demand for Cyber Security, Information Security and Compliance Personnel have grown and is still growing. This is why we encourage you to make it a priority as one of your new year’s resolution if you are looking for a career change or need a better career to consider joining our 3 months Cyber Security Training.
Over the years, we trained over 500 participants. Over 80% of them are now Information Security Professionals gainfully employed with salaries ranging from $83,000 to $135,000 annual or $43/hr to $75/hr. They are working for Federal Government, State Agencies and Fortune 500 Companies such as General Electric (GE), Hewlett Packard (HP), United State Postal Services (USPS) and Care First just to mention a few. If you are in doubt, contact us and we will prove to you by contacting those working for such organizations to attest to it and to give you confirmation and if possible show you an actual payslips of previous payments.
This year, we are committed to train more professionals and we want you to be part of such a life changing opportunity.
