Cybersecurity is one of the most in-demand global fields today. We’re committed to equipping you with the fundamental skills you need to make an impact while providing unparalleled support and resources before, during, and after your boot camp.
The economic impact of cyber crime is growing: In 2020, the average cost to businesses affected by a data breach in the United States was $8.64 million, up 32% from 2015, and nearly double the global average.1
You can help protect organizations and populations — and change your entire career trajectory. As the world grows more connected and automated (and therefore, more vulnerable), the demand for cybersecurity specialists is on the rise. Information security is one of the fastest-growing fields,2 and No. 6 on Glassdoor’s Top 50 Jobs in America.3
We know how important certification is for our students; that’s why we chose CompTIA as a partner to provide you with a complimentary CertMaster test prep tool and an exam voucher to take the CompTIA certification exam of your choice: Security+, Network+, Linux+, Server+, or Cloud+.
While the boot camp itself does not provide test preparation, a portion of the final module is dedicated to helping you learn and leverage the CertMaster Test Prep Tool for the Security+ exam and some CEH content to get you started.

I was able to instantly apply the skills taught in the course to projects at work, which was noticed by management on all levels. I've been able to take the lead on additional projects and step in where other, more senior members of my team would have done so in the past. The instructors were well-versed in different areas of cybersecurity and did an excellent job complementing each other's skills. Jeff S.

Career Services was immensely helpful in preparing my resume to be scrutinized by industry professionals during the interview process. Additionally, I was recruited for my job from the boot camp's referral network, which was instrumental in me landing interview requests. Matthew M.
