Effective cybersecurity reduces the risk of cyber-attacks and protects organizations and individuals from the unauthorized exploitation of systems, networks, and technologies.

Cyber-attacks can disrupt and cause considerable financial and reputational damage to even the most resilient organization.

If you suffer a cyber-attack, you stand to lose valuable assets, a reputation and possibly even loss of income depending on the nature of the business, and potentially face regulatory fines and litigation – as well as the costs of remediation.

SecureSet Tampa is a firm that trains enrolees for a career in Cybersecurity. In mid-January, it has plans to launch a new training program for candidates from their new offices in Ybor City.

Adam Sheffield, director of SecureSet’s Tampa campus explained: “Cyber threats are growing exponentially, but there is a lack of qualified talent and innovation in Tampa Bay and nationally.” To breach this niche, the firm is seeking "IT job transitioners, veterans and others" who may be interested in a career in the ever-growing area of cybersecurity.

Two different immersive courses are offered: the CORE Analyst course is conducted over 20 weeks and aims to have graduates ready for immediate placement as security engineers, analysts, pen testers, and consultants. The other class is HUNT Analyst, which is over 12 weeks and hopes to have graduates serve as security and threat analysts.

The CORE Analyst course will happen at the Ybor location in January and is designed to help those who are looking to change careers or begin a new one to enter this high-growth field. With new enrollees being able to complete the program in as little as three months, and a placement rate at their original location in Denver at 100%, high-paying jobs can be had for SecureSet students either near the campus or across the country.

An exciting development is that Bay Area cyber firm and Managed Security Services Provider Abacode has already partnered with SecureSet as a hiring partner to ensure immediate employment for graduates.

As the campus grows, hopefully, more people will complete the courses and fill the growing need for cybersecurity jobs along the I-4 Corridor, helping to prevent the "brain drain" that the emerging technology area desperately wants to avoid. With more and more technology businesses heading to Central Florida, the need for qualified people to fill jobs in these fields has never been higher, and SecureSet is aiming to fill this niche.
