Beaufort Digital Corridor to offer evening cybersecurity classes for beginners

From staff reports

The Beaufort Digital Corridor is presenting a new series of three 8-week cybersecurity mini courses Aug. 24 through Oct. 12 that will make the subject simple to learn. Designed especially for novices and newcomers to the topic of cybersecurity – including current or graduating students, business owners, transitioning military members, or anyone looking for a promising new career path –- this trio of courses will gradually but concisely introduce the fundamentals of cybersecurity and everything one needs to make an entry into the field, no matter what their background.

Taught by Technical College of the Lowcountry professor and Cybersecurity Program Director Angela Fantom Kern, CISSP, CISA, M. Ed, MBA, the three interconnected courses will culminate in an entry-level Security Risk Analysis (SRA) Certificate – which itself can open doors to salaries starting at $65,000 on average.

The three parts of the series are broken down into key areas of most importance in cybersecurity: the course list starts with a broad overview of issues and concepts in Cybersecurity for Beginners, including malicious activity, cryptography, and access control, and the follow-up courses cover Security Policy & Procedures for Small Business Owners, through to Risk Analysis & Management, including the creation of their very own professional risk management plan.

In the interest of accessibility and efficiency, classes only require a time investment of 90 minutes a week, for 8 weeks per course. That’s 6 hours a month to a brand-new world of opportunities. And the best part? No homework will be assigned.

Multiple scholarships will be made available on a needs-first basis, so sign up now if you can potentially see yourself in the flourishing cybersecurity industry.
