Lifetime Skills - Cyber Academy
Today, fighting cybercrime costs businesses globally more than $6 trillion annually and there are 3.5 million unfilled security jobs, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. Raytheon Professional Services’ (RPS) Cyber Academy is a retraining programme designed to create a new generation of Cyber Security Technicians, who will develop the necessary skills and knowledge to secure Cyber Security related employment.
RPS’ Cyber Academy Training curriculum stems from unmatched expertise — the kind that can only come from one of the largest training and technology organisations in the world. Our team delivers proven training programmes and best practice across the entire cyber operations spectrum. We partner with an extensive network of industry and university experts to translate deep technical knowledge about the latest threats, exploitation techniques, malware and advanced defencive strategies into relevant, up-to-date training. RPS uses Cyber Operations Training programmes within our own global workforce to manage computer network operations and defences, as well as to enhance the skills and situational awareness of our personnel across multiple disciplines within the company.
The U.K. government has unveiled a new policy and funding programme which aims to ensure that all adults have equal opportunities to learn new skills and achieve long term employment. Raytheon Professional Services has designed Skills Boot Camps to upskill, or reskill, delegates to achieve Level 3 qualifications within Cyber Security. The equivalent to an advanced technical certificate or diploma, or A Levels, candidates can now access fully-funded courses in this rapidly growing and crucial sector.
