Cyber Security Bootcamp: Get a job in cybersecurity, guaranteed.
Learn in-demand skills, and prepare for a globally recognized certification in cybersecurity.
We’ve partnered with CompTIA, the world's leading tech association, to create this program. CompTIA has developed certification exams that map directly to today’s current IT job roles.
CompTIA's Security+ certification lays the groundwork for specialized career paths in cybersecurity. Security+ is a global certification that validates the baseline skills necessary to perform core security functions and pursue an IT security career. Certification covers core technical skills in risk assessment and management, incident response, forensics, enterprise networks, hybrid/cloud operations, and security controls, ensuring high-performance on the job.
Springboard’s Cyber Security Bootcamp incorporates preparation materials, developed with CompTIA, for taking the certification exam, as well as official practice exams.
This 360-hour bootcamp covers cybersecurity fundamentals, systems and network security, vulnerability assessment, and security operations. By studying 15-20 hours per week, you should complete it in 6 months. Course units include learning resources, practice exercises, practical labs, and career-related coursework. Here is a preview.
This module introduces you to the fundamentals of cybersecurity through a hands-on journey of recognizing basic IT security threats and various ways to mitigate those threats. This involves an exploration of red-team (offensive security professionals) vs. blue-team (defensive security professionals) spheres of work, setting you up for the first, user-facing domains of cybersecurity: systems security.
Identity and Access Management (IAM) is one of the most important disciplines within cybersecurity. It aims to manage user identities and their access to enterprise resources and data. IAM governance and programs—including policies, processes, and technologies—manage user identities and access, as well as what a user can do within a system through authentication, authorization, and accounting.
In the Security Assessment and Training unit, you will learn how to conduct security assessments and recommend remediation activities. You will also learn how to create Information Security (IS) audit test plans, which will give you insight into how IS auditors approach their engagements. Exposure to advanced concepts around web security testing and the use of Kali Linux is also included.
The guided capstone project will consist of several stages of solution design for a given problem statement. During this capstone, you will be required to work on a hypothetical pen test and develop a corrective action plan. The guided capstone is designed to help you understand how various components that we learn throughout the course come together to form an experience that familiarizes the student with a day-in-the-life of a security analyst.
