In the new digital era, organizations rely on cybersecurity to protect themselves, enable trust, move faster, add value, and grow. As the volume and sophistication of cyberattacks rises, organizations are experiencing a significant shortage of IT professionals with cybersecurity skills.
To help close this security skills gap, Cisco is introducing the Global Cybersecurity Scholarship program. Cisco will invest $10 million in this two-year program to increase the pool of talent with critical cybersecurity proficiency. Cisco also has enhanced its security certification portfolio with a new Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) Cyber Ops certification and a revised Cisco CCIE Security certification.
Scholarship awards are available from August 1, 2016, until the end of July 2017.
