Cyversity has teamed up with United Airlines to award scholarships for cybersecurity training to its members. The online, on-demand training program will span from 30 May to 17 November 2023.
The scholarship training package includes Cybersecurity Network Defense (Blue Teaming), Application Security (Red Teaming), and Cloud Security. Recipients will also receive computer-based and simulation training, allowing them to enhance their knowledge and skills in the cybersecurity field. The scholarship covers the cost of the certification exam fee, enabling individuals to obtain industry-recognized certifications without financial burden.
All recipients will receive Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) training. After the GRC training, recipients will choose one of three additional training areas: Cybersecurity Network Defense (Blue Teaming), Application Security (Red Teaming), and Cloud Security.
“Empowering individuals with the knowledge and skills to secure our digital world is critical to our airline,” said United Vice President and Chief Information Security Officer, Deneen DeFiore. “We’re excited to offer scholarships for Cyversity participants for cybersecurity training to support and encourage the next generation of cybersecurity professionals.”
The entire training program consists of two phases: Phase I focuses on Governance, Risk, and Compliance topics, which must be completed within one to two months to progress to Phase II. In Phase II, recipients will have the option to specialize in one of the three training paths: Application Security (Red Teaming), Network Security (Blue Teaming), or Cloud Security, and the completion of this phase will take approximately three to four months.
