Cybersecurity is the protection of internet-connected systems, including hardware, software and data, from cyberattacks. With the digital transformation happening rapidly on a global level, the cloud, and workforce mobility have enabled data and users to scatter far beyond the boundary of walled-off office networks and data centres. That has increased the risk of cyberattacks. As a result, there is an increase in demand for Cybersecurity professionals in the last few years.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the rate of growth for jobs in Cybersecurity is projected at 37% by 2022.
With multiple jobs available, many professionals who are in the cybersecurity field, they have mastered the essential skills through certificate programs.
“After multiple calls and emails, I went to Jigsaw academy on the invitation to speak with HackerU’s CEO, Global Education Mr. Ariel Cohen. After discussing with him, I enrolled for the course then and there only.” Vanjaku writes in his blog article.
Furthermore, he describes his experience as a journey of phases, where he got to learn from the industry experts. During the 3-month long master certification program, Mr. Venkatesh was taught by faculty members from HackerU India who are certified in OSCE (Offensive Security Certified Expert) & OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional) – certificates that prove mastery of advanced penetration testing skills.
“One unsung superhero of the class is Yogendra Swaroop, He is an OSCP Certified. In terms of knowledge, he is like a walking Wikipedia. He is the coolest person in the class who encourages students that are trying to learn the subject. No matter whether it’s a small or big achievement he will clap for you, he will encourage you, he will push you and he will always be there for you.” Vanjaku writes in his blog article.
He also answers a few frequently asked questions about the program in his article.
“Yes, this training will be from scratch as per the topics mentioned in the website and brochure…” Writes Vanjaku while answering the question on whether they will teach the learner from scratch.
Venkatesh Vanjaku, a commerce graduate from Bangalore, was always keen on ethical hacking and is now employed with a US based leading cybersecurity company called FireEye. Inc after completing his certification course. We wish him all the best in all his future endeavours.
Like Venkatesh, you can also make the right move in your career with a Master Certificate in Cyber Security (Red Team) by Jigsaw Academy in collaboration with HackerU (Israel’s premier cyber security training provider). The only Cyber Security certification program in India of its kind, this program has been ranked #1 among the ‘Top 10 Cybersecurity Courses in India in 2020’ by Analytics India Magazine (AIM).
