CISOSHARE and UpSkill OC Cyber Security Training

Bringing Knowledge and Experience to Capable People

Cyber security is one of the fastest-growing fields to date, but it’s also broken. Our training program is meant to move away from the traditional cyber security approaches that aren’t working. We’re solving the core problems in cyber security: lack of people, lack of understanding, and lack of progress by combining experienced talent with anyone that has an aptitude for success.

How the Class Works

Participants begin with training with a month of foundational training at United Way’s facilities in Irvine to learn the basics of how to navigate the cyber security discipline.

After the class, participants are invited to CISOSHARE to work directly with our security experts. Candidates receive hands-on, role-specific training in three cyber security positions that are the most commonly needed: third-party risk assessors, vulnerability analysts, and policy analysts.

Finally, participants will have the opportunity to work directly on projects within partner businesses to further develop and refine their skills with challenges only found in real projects.
