SANTA CLARA, Calif. – March 30, 2021 – Netskope, the leading security cloud, today announced its collaboration with Concordia Continuing Education (CCE) to add their unique networking and security solutions to the existing Cyber Resilience Program. Currently offered online to accommodate the pandemic, this innovative program provides unique educational opportunities in two highly relevant workplace areas in the field of cyber resilience: Prevention and Response.
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the ongoing transformation of how IT and security are delivered and how data is accessed via cloud applications. Threats are now primarily cloud-based, underscoring the global importance of training capable cloud security professionals at every level. CCE is among forward-thinking higher education institutions that recognize the need for innovative education and the paramount importance of hands-on cloud security training.
The CCE 180-hour program offers students the skills and experience to protect companies from cyberattacks. Through the program, students also acquire knowledge and skills to operate ethically within organizational, legal, and regulatory rules and policies. In the program, students receive training from Netskope experts and use Netskope’s award-winning, industry-validated cloud networking and security solutions. Special, on-the-job learning opportunities will additionally help participants refine the skills that will make them an asset to organizations, and personalized career mentorship will help participants transition into the workforce and careers in technology.
“Netskope and Concordia Continuing Education are adamant about investing in the Canadian cybersecurity community through R&D and education. This program will generate some of the best cybersecurity experts of tomorrow and will also help address Canada’s skill shortage in cloud cybersecurity. Together with the holistic nature of the program, CCE and Netskope are hoping to make it easier for successful students to become outstanding professionals.” Sherry Blok, Director of Programs, Concordia Continuing Education.
