Government seeks cyber security heroes with retraining courses open to all
"The government has announced the launch of a 10-week boot camp training initiative designed to churn out more skilled cyber security experts as part of the newly unveiled National Cyber Security Strategy.
The Cyber Retraining Academy course does not require those interested to have any prior cyber expertise, but is looking for those with natural aptitude. Interested parties can undertake a quiz online to determine their suitability.
Training will be given by experts from the SANS Institute and graduates on the course will tackle everything from fending off malware attacks to hacking into flying drones.
Applications can be made now and the training will take place in London from 23 January 2017. The aim is to roll out the programme to other cities in the years ahead.”
