The nonprofit organization Women in Cybersecurity has partnered with the Information System Security Certification Consortium, aka (ISC)², to launch their new Certified in Cybersecurity Certification Summer Camp.
The camp is an entry-level certification program open to all members of Women in CyberSecurity. It focuses on security principles, business continuity, disaster recovery, incident response, access controls, network security, and security operations, according to the organizations. The program inlcudes access to self-paced learning, two mentors — one from Women in Cybersecurity and one from (ISC)² — and access to "open office hours" for participants. Participants with the top 3 exam scores will receive scholarships to attend the Women in Cybersecurity annual conference in 2024. (Details about the 2024 conference are not yet live, but information about the 2023 conference, held in March, can be found here.)
The program runs June 12–July 21, and the application period to participate in the program is open through May 30. Complete details can be found here.
