News Alert: ThriveDX’s Cyber Academy for Enterprise meets talent shortage, promotes inclusion

Miami, Fla. – June 20, 2023 –  ThriveDX, the leader in cybersecurity and digital skills training, today announced the official launch of its new Cyber Academy for Enterprise. This innovative solution, part of the company’s Human Factor Security suite, empowers organizations to reskill and upskill employees for cybersecurity positions while also attracting diverse external candidates, simultaneously addressing the growing talent and diversity gaps in the cyber industry.

Cyber Academy for Enterprise is more than a cybersecurity training program – it’s a complete solution that enables businesses and government agencies to cultivate their internal talents while simultaneously attracting diverse external candidates for cybersecurity positions.

Designed for an end-to-end cybersecurity learning journey, the program offers pre-training screening, intensive training, and post-training matching to facilitate an efficient talent acquisition and development process.

“The cybersecurity talent shortage and lack of diversity, is one of the biggest challenges of human resources and cybersecurity leaders. Effective reskilling of employees demands considerable investment, and recruiting diverse talent requires a comprehensive understanding of organizational needs to properly align candidates with open positions,” said Roy Zur, CEO of ThriveDX Enterprise.

“Our Cyber Academy for Enterprise creates unprecedented educational opportunities for all, irrespective of their background or skill level,” Zur continued. “It not only aids in talent acquisition from outside the company but also facilitates the reskilling and upskilling of current employees, fostering an environment of continual learning and development.”

The global shortage of cybersecurity talent and the skills gap continue to widen, with more than 3.5 million unfilled cybersecurity jobs worldwide. Eighty-percent of organizations attribute one or more recent breaches to a lack of cybersecurity talent and skills within their company.  At the same time, the industry suffers from a lack of diversity. The Cyber Academy for Enterprise targets both these issues, offering a robust platform for building cyber skills and enhancing diversity within the industry.
