Cyber Practitioner Virtual Boot Camp

Make an Impact & Address the Global Cybersecurity Shortage

Regent has developed the Cyber Practitioner Boot Camp to help meet the urgent and growing demand for cyber training in the workplace by closing the gap between your cyber knowledge and hands-on skills. With access to our multimillion-dollar Cyber Range at Regent’s Institute for Cybersecurity, you’ll gain the practice you need to be exam-ready, industry certified, and competitive in your career. You’ll also be part of important, interactive discussions on ethical cyber leadership while learning basic concepts in Linux operating system, network protocols, network security, cryptography, penetration testing, threat analysis, and incident response. A capstone simulation course option leads to Regent’s certified cyber practitioner designation.
