Training Opportunities

Workshops/Classes

We all know the cybersecurity market is hot. Our training workshops and classes provide you with the  training to help you protect your organizations assets. We provide all levels of training to fit your skill level. Our niche is providing hands-on workshops to fill the gaps of what you may have read or studied from a book or just supplementing that certification you passed. Our goal is for you to walk away with knowledge of something you may not have known that can be used in the workforce.

We offer classes that are spread out as workshops so you can pick and choose according to your skill level and schedule.

Our classes are aligned with the National Cybersecurity Workforce Framework so you can focus on what you need to learn for a specific job area.

If you are interested in teaching a workshop please contact us at events@womenscyberjutsu.org

 

Which workshop/class should I take?

Depending on your focus, you should take the workshops that apply to that track/path. It doesn't hurt to know more but focusing on a specific area is good so you can excel and succeed in that area.

We recommend self-rating yourself according to the information below to see which level workshop you should attend. Attending all 100-level workshops is recommended before attending the higher level ones.

Generally, we see three audiences in our organization pursuing training:

1. Career-changers into IT/security from a field not related to Information Technology or Computer Science.

2. Existing IT professionals, in IT specialties outside of security, such as IT Operations, Database Administrators, Programmers, and others.

3. Existing Security Professionals looking to expand their technical skills

Levels - Experience Expectations

100 < 2 years sec exp. / some IT

200 < 4 years sec exp.

300 > 4 years sec exp.

Example Course Levels

A+, Net+, Sec+ - 100 levels, “Intro to” X topics

CISSP - 200 level, Pentesting, Vulnerability Scanning/Analysis

Exploit Dev, Malware Analysis - 300

General Level Descriptions

Level 100 courses are designed for students with little to no previous IT Security experience, or no experience in the topic(s) being covered.  These courses are meant to be introductory level, or provide the training for entry level certifications.

Level 200 courses are designed for students with some security experience, looking to advance or learn in new topics.

Level 300 courses are designed to offer expert level courses and training on specific topics.  Typically, a general understanding and knowledge of the topic being presented is an expected prerequisite.  

**More detailed prerequisites will be stated per course.
***No one is excluded from attending a course at a level higher than their current experience.  However, the course will move at the pace designed for the level of the course.

If you have no IT experience, we generally recommend getting some training or taking a class for the Comptia A+ exam. Also building a home lab is a really good way to get experience. Cybersecurity is built on securing IT, hence why you should know basic IT. We provide entry-level certification classes with more effort in giving you hands-on experience, not just passing the exam. See Cyberjutsu Training Academy (CTA) - coming back soon.

 

Study Groups

We offer free peep-to-peer study groups led by members that are giving back to the community. Many lead study groups to help prepare for the exam themselves. These are usually held online-only. To join a study group, go to the groups link from your profile and join. It will also be on the event calendar.

If you are interested in leading a study group, please contact us at info@womenscyberjutsu.org

 

Projects

This is still under development. The idea is for a small group of participants to get together to work on a very specific hands-on project ( for the duration of the whole lifecycle. The takeaways are the skills learned, but also the research and troubleshooting that you will be faced with. This is a great way to get experience on your resume. Join the projects to get notified when they will start.

 

Competitions

Competitions is a group that is interested in competing in hacking and other type of security competitions. We have competition practice to prepare for competitions, but this is another great way to get hands-on training! Join the competition team group and check out the event calendar.
