Who should enroll?
Students who wish to explore a career in cyber security to determine if it is right for them. The ideal student is intensely curious, unwilling to give up on a problem no matter how difficult it is, and predisposed towards self-directed learning.
Only basic computer skills are required, but basic knowledge of computer networks, protocols, and the fundamentals of operating systems is strongly recommended. Taking and passing a pre-assessment is REQUIRED before you are allowed to register for this program. If you have an IT background, you can ask to be exempted from this requirement.

Students must successfully complete Cyber Security: Immediate Immersion to be permitted to enroll in the next course in this program, Cyber Security: Defense. Success will be assessed by a student's mentors whose decision is final.
