The practical skills you need to
land a lucrative cyber
No experience required.
The Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp works with employers to understand what cyber
security skills they’re
looking for in their next hires. Then we teach you those skills.
The Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp is built to take you from cyber security novice to in-demand cyber security professional in just 17 weeks of full-time study.
What you learn in that time will qualify you for two specific cyber security roles--Security Operations Center (SOC) Analyst and Penetration Tester--and will include lectures, workshops, red team/blue team training, and hands-on cyber attack simulations.
What You'll Learn
Throughout the phases above, the curriculum will expose you to several in-demand cyber security applications, train you for multiple major cyber security certifications, and focus on four core cyber security competencies.
Explore the in-depth curriculum breakdown below.
The goal of Foundations is to make sure every student arrives on campus at the same skill level. You’ll receive access to Foundations materials five weeks before your on-campus start date, and you’ll study those materials part-time. We estimate it will take about 25 hours a week, but could be more or less, depending on your level of familiarity with the concepts beforehand. Those concepts include:
Foundations includes two checkpoints--halfway through and again at the end of the phase--to measure your progress and ensure you’re ready for the next phase of the program. You’ll also have the option to try your hand at the CompTIA Networking+ and Security+ exams.
During the first six weeks of the on-campus program, you’ll focus on the skills you’ll need to get work as a penetration tester--which means red team skills. This is known as ethical hacking--understanding how unethical hackers operate in order to better protect individuals, companies, and governments against them. Remember that before even submitting a deposit for our bootcamp, you’ll sign a code of conduct contractually obligating you to use the information you learn only for ethical purposes.
At the end of Junior Phase, you’ll have a chance to take the OSCP certification exam.
In the final six weeks of the on-campus program, you’ll learn blue team skills, which will qualify you to work as a security operations center (SOC) analyst. Blue team work is built around the five key steps of the NIST cyber security framework:
You’ll also participate in an actual SOC battle, or simulated cyber attack, using Cyber NYC’s state-of-the-art cyber range, and put together a proof of concept for a cyber security system of your own. Senior Phase includes two additional certification opportunities - CISSP Associate and another shot at OSCP--and culminates in an exclusive in-house job fair for Fullstack Cyber Bootcamp students.
