Are you interested in a career in Cybersecurity?

Day in the Life of a Security Analyst

Cybersecurity is ‘the largest technical challenge of our generation,’ says ReliaQuest’s CEO. Here’s how the company is partnering with USF to create hands-on learning
Widespread cybercrime and cyber insecurity are one among the most severe risks the globe is set to face over the next decade and beyond.

If you’re interested in expanding your cyber security and incident response skills, this is a great opportunity to dive in with professionals in the field. This is a highly technical and competitive program that will help take you to the next level in your education, and potentially your career after graduation.

There will be four hands-on lab sessions that will teach you how to perform in-depth analysis on potential cyber threats, as well as get you exposed to enterprise tools, including ReliaQuest’s proprietary security operations platform GreyMatter.

Each successful graduate of this program will receive a Certificate of Completion in Cyber Analytic Fundamentals and will be offered an opportunity to interview for either a paid internship or full time position with ReliaQuest.
