In partnership with Information System Security Certification Consortium (ISC)2), Women in CyberSecurity (WiCyS), the nonprofit organization dedicated to the recruitment, retention and advancement of women in cybersecurity, today announced that applications are open for the WiCyS (ISC)2 Certified in Cybersecurity Certification Summer Camp. The entry-level certification is open to any WiCyS member, whether they are current IT professionals, looking to transition from another field into cybersecurity or a college student or recent graduate. Prerequisites, previous cybersecurity work experience and/or formal cybersecurity education is not required to enroll in the program.

As the cybersecurity talent gap continues to persist, the summer camp will train participants across five security domains, including security principles; business continuity; disaster recovery and incident response concepts; access controls concepts; network security; and security operations. The program runs from June 12 – July 21.

“Navigating entrance into the field of cybersecurity can be daunting and confusing,” said Lynn Dohm, executive director of WiCyS. “The Certified in Cybersecurity Certification will help women and other underrepresented groups kickstart their cyber career in an inclusive and supportive environment alongside their peers and mentors. We have no doubt that the program will be immensely beneficial to these individuals as they prepare to launch a new career.”
