CDT Opens Registration for Virtual Cybersecurity Boot Camp

The Cybersecurity Boot Camp is a four-week online program aimed at preparing the government’s security workforce for security roles within California’s public sector.

The California Department of Technology (CDT) has opened registration for its second Cybersecurity Boot Camp, a four-week virtual training program aimed at preparing the government’s security workforce for the roles of information security officer, agency information security officer and/or an expanded role within their department or agency’s security office.

The boot camp focuses on expanding the knowledge and capability in a variety of areas that impact city, county and state government.

“Cybersecurity jobs continue to be in high demand across the nation and California in particular,” said Brenda Bridges Cruz, deputy director for the Office of Professional Development (OPD). “CDT recognizes that building a cybersecurity workforce with the right skills, knowledge and abilities to protect our state information assets is critical. Due to the increased need and interest in training related to information security, we are excited to offer this program for a second year.”

The program will run from Oct. 24 through Nov. 17. In addition to critical learning modules focused on FIPS 199/200, risk management, threat intelligence, ransomware, and being a cyber first responder, students will receive a virtual overview of the CDT’s security operations center and its associated governance, operations and technology capabilities.

Registration will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested participants may register via CDT’s open registration process.
