Middle Bit: DeltaV Code School launches new cybersecurity training program

DeltaV Code School is launching a new cybersecurity training program called DeltaV Cybersecurity.

“Cybersecurity is one of the most in-demand fields,” said Dan Tuuri, who will be heading up the new program in a release. “We need to help organizations prevent, detect, and respond to cyber attacks and threats in a rapidly changing environment. By relying on industry expertise, industry and governmental resources, students will get real exposure to the ways that bad agents and criminals cause harm and how businesses defend and recover.”

The inaugural cohort of the 14-week program will launch on Nov. 29 and will conclude on March 18, 2022.

 Registration is open now until December 22nd.
