By removing training costs and building the world’s largest community of cyber security talent, Cybrary will increase the supply side of the jobs market, bring employers and talent together, and ultimately eradicate the cyber security talent shortage.
Greenbelt, Maryland (PRWEB) October 13, 2015
Cybrary, the world’s first and only no-cost cyber security massive open online course (MOOC) provider, today launched its Cyber Security Job Platform. This talent platform is designed to meet the demand for skilled cyber security professionals, which is growing four times faster than the overall IT job market, and 12 times faster than the total labor market. Currently there are more than a million open job postings for cyber security positions around the world.
Complimentary to all job seekers, Cybrary’s new talent platform features jobs in three main categories: GRC/Information Assurance, Network and Application Security, and Malware, Threat and Intel. Job seekers can upload and store up to five resumes for applying to positions. Employers and recruiters can post jobs and find professionals at all levels - entry, advanced, and leadership – for a variety of titles, such as Director of Cyber Security, Risk Management Analysts, Healthcare Information Security Officer, and Threat Analyst.
“In the past, cyber security training has been excessively expensive. This has created a shortage of skilled cyber security professionals, leaving many businesses unprepared to fight emerging cyber threats,” said Ryan Corey, co-founder of Cybrary. “By removing training costs and building the world’s largest community of cyber security talent, Cybrary will increase the supply side of the jobs market, bring employers and talent together, and ultimately eradicate the cyber security talent shortage.”
Launched in January 2015, Cybrary is growing at a record pace with nearly 250,000 users from over 150 countries. More than 120,000 people took cyber security training courses at Cybrary last month, which provides no-cost, comprehensive IT and cyber security training options for people seeking to break into cyber security or accelerate in their careers. Notably, 16 percent of Cybrary’s user base is comprised of women, which is higher than the industry average.
Cybrary has championed several additional initiatives over the last 10 months to meet other cyber security workforce challenges, including a pilot program with Women in Technology (WiT) and Cornerstone which utilizes Cybrary’s enterprise training platform to help advance women and girls in the cyber security industry; the creation of an educational training platform that helps K-12 and higher education educators plan, manage, and monitor IT and cyber security curriculum; and an enterprise security training platform that assists organizations in providing and managing courses and training programs for their employees, including end-user security awareness.
Earlier this year, Cybrary was ranked #51 in a report of Top 100 brands in cyber security on social media. In August, the company closed a round of seed funding to help foster community growth and develop additional course content. Cybrary currently offers the most in-demand, cutting-edge training courses in cyber security, with new courses launching monthly.
Founded in 2015, Cybrary gives aspiring and practicing cyber security professionals what they have long deserved and been denied: access to no-cost, high-quality, open-source and results-focused IT and cyber security training that will help start and advance their careers. A MOOC provider whose top managers have nearly 15 years of experience in IT training, Cybrary offers no -cost online training to anyone, anywhere and at every skill level.
