Technology today is more accessible than it’s ever been—but it’s also more of a liability.
Government-sponsored bots disrupted
Hackers continue to obtain sensitive consumer information.
Run-of-the-mill phishing scams can cost U.S. businesses nearly $1.6 billion in a single year.
So it’s no surprise that businesses are spending more on cybersecurity now than ever before.
Projected value of U.S. cybersecurity
industry by 2023
Right now, companies aren’t able to find enough qualified entry-level cybersecurity professionals to hire, leaving the U.S. government, countless businesses, and many individuals exposed to cyber attacks.
The City of New York and the Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp are looking to change that.
What’s in it for you?
Entry-level cybersecurity professionals in New York City make an average of $85,000 a year—70% more than the median income in NYC.
Lots of different companies—from those that specialize in cybersecurity to consumer brands or media companies looking to protect their subscribers—are hiring in NYC.
How the Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp works
The Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp is a partnership between the City of New York and Fullstack Academy
– now one of the nation’s most established coding bootcamps, originally founded right here in New
York City nearly a decade ago.
Students choose the program schedule that works best for them – study at the pace you prefer and become a cybersecurity pro in just 17 or 26 weeks. The bootcamp combines technical cybersecurity skills training and hands-on experience in simulated cyber attacks with professional development like resume help, networking guidance, and an exclusive in-house job fair for students.
This cybersecurity bootcamp is part of the city’s $100-million-dollar Cyber NYC initiative that aims to make New York a global leader in cybersecurity, just as we are in finance, tech, and more.
What you’ll learn once you’re in
The Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp curriculum is built for cybersecurity beginners.
You’ll go from beginner to cybersecurity pro, and fast.
To make sure you have the skills you need, we’ll concentrate on:
- Bro IDS
- CompTIA CySA+
- CompTIA Security+
- CISSP Associate
Our curriculum has been developed with input from cybersecurity experts who know what employers are looking for, so you’ll graduate with exactly the skills you need to get a lucrative cybersecurity job. And since knowing how to get a job is just as important as knowing how to do a job, we also provide career development support.
Apply to join our January cohort
You don’t need any cybersecurity experience or knowledge to
be admitted to the Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp. What you
need is to be able to think critically, solve problems, and
demonstrate grit. Working your way through the bootcamp
takes dedication and discipline – and then you’ll have to tackle
the job search.
With that in mind, our admissions process requires a logical reasoning assessment and a 30-minute interview—but before you do any of that, you’ve got to submit an application. So go for it!
