Digital Cyber Academies ( DCA’s)

Through our DCA’s, we provide individuals free access to the Immersive Labs practical-learning environment aimed at introducing individuals to cybersecurity and developing their entry-level cyber skills from cybersecurity basics to Junior Penetration Tester and Tier-1 SOC Analyst.

The Immersive Labs DCA’s supply an enthusiastic talent pool – one that may not ordinarily consider a career in cyber –, with the opportunity to showcase their cyber skills to prospective employers. By using the platform, individuals can develop and share “proof of skill” to support their job applications.

With the current cybersecurity workforce and skills gap, initiatives like the Immersive Labs Digital Cyber Academies are essential to changing the way we think about the recruitment process. These programs enable organizations to uncover hidden talent and create more opportunities for academy students.
