Developed By Veterans of Unit 8200, The Elite Cyber-Intelligence Unit of The Israeli Defense Forces, First Cohort of Graduates Are Fully Trained For Israel’s Prestigious Cybersecurity Industry
TEL AVIV, Israel, May 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ThriveDX SaaS (formerly Cybint Solutions), today announced the graduation and subsequent job placement of its first cohort of graduates of the Cybersecurity Impact Bootcamp in Israel. This marks the second time ThriveDX has worked with the Government of Israel to prepare trainees for jobs in the country’s highly esteemed cybersecurity industry.
“It’s an honor to be chosen to work with Israel’s Government for a second time to bring the Cybersecurity Impact Bootcamp to learners across the country,” said David Chesterman, Head of Education Partnerships, ThriveDX SaaS. “ThriveDX’s mission is to help people find and retain jobs that accelerate their careers, and we’re confident that the cohort of 2022 is poised for success in Israel’s well-respected cybersecurity industry.”
ThriveDX’s Cybersecurity Impact Bootcamp was developed by veterans of the elite cyber-intelligence unit of the IDF (unit 8200) to create more accessible career opportunities in cybersecurity. The bootcamp successfully prepares people with little or no background in tech for entry-level cybersecurity jobs. Fully government-funded, the Cybersecurity Impact Bootcamp encourages underrepresented groups of people in tech, such as women, minorities, and students from the socio-geographic periphery, to apply.
“The Cybersecurity Impact Bootcamp isn’t just preparing trainees or helping unemployed people find work, but also opens up opportunities for underrepresented groups, thanks to its unique training method,” said Dan Hakimi, Chief Solutions Officer, ThriveDX SaaS. “This bootcamp gives companies across Israel access to the talent their workforce is missing, and provides candidates with a jumping off point for their new career. We couldn’t be more excited for the graduates and wish them the best of luck.”
“I’m so happy with my decision to sign up for the bootcamp,” said Moshe Ben, a recent graduate.
“The bootcamp’s unique training method has given me self-learning skills, hands-on experience practicing cyber-cenarios in the bootcamp’s labs, as well as professional preparation for finding a job. In fact, one day after the bootcamp ended I signed a contract with a cyber company!
“I could not have asked for a better journey in landing my first job in cybersecurity.”
