A specialized cybersecurity academy programme
especially for universities and other higher education institutions
Why do university students need the ICSI Academy programme?
The increasing number and gravity of cybersecurity breaches in both the private and public sector have led to a severe shortage of trained cybersecurity experts with work experience. Although a university programme in IT provides in-depth theoretical knowledge, the academic nature of degree courses often fails to deliver practical skills. The ICSI Academy is the ideal way to enhance or complement an academic degree by offering university students the hands-on training they need to enter the job market immediately.
How do universities benefit from the ICSI Academy?
