ThriveDX announced the launch of the Cyber Academy to place cybersecurity analysts at its partner CyberProof, a UST company and leader in the cybersecurity industry providing enterprises with expert managed detection and response services. Following the first successful round of training, twelve graduates from ThriveDX’s Cyber Academy are now working as SOC Tier 1 analysts, leveraging their collective knowledge, skills and collaborative work approach to handle complex cybersecurity challenges efficiently.
This model allowed CyberProof to quickly fill open positions with highly motivated, qualified and diverse candidates, while providing academy graduates with valuable real-world experience. The successful collaboration further proves the value of launching Cyber Academies with comprehensive bootcamp programs in partnership with employers to solve the growing cyber talent shortage.
ThriveDX’s Cyber Academy offers trainees access to more than 1,000 hours of immersive learning and hands-on educational experience, ensuring they are properly prepared for real-world cybersecurity challenges. The courses are designed by industry experts and provide candidates with knowledge, skills and capabilities in a variety of subjects including network administration, incident handling, forensics, ethical hacking, threat intelligence, malware analysis and more. Through its corporate and government partnerships, ThriveDX helps to position candidates in open roles, building a new, highly skilled cybersecurity workforce. With an estimated cyber talent gap of nearly 3.5 million worldwide, partnerships such as this one with CyberProof are becoming critical to helping companies stay secure.
ThriveDX’s adaptive training programs are continuously updated with new content on a weekly basis to address real-world threats. The enterprise suite offers relevant cyber training for every position in the organization, including application security and secure-code training for developers and engineers, security awareness and phishing simulators for the entire workforce, and specialized executive training.
