Through the Cyber Bootcamp at University of North Florida powered by Fullstack, you’ll go from novice to cybersecurity professional and gain the tools to land a job in one of the world’s highest-paying industries—all in just 26 weeks part-time.

Why Cybersecurity?
Technology today is more accessible than it’s ever been—but it’s also more of a liability.
Bots

Government-sponsored bots disrupted an election.

Hacked data

Hackers continue to obtain sensitive consumer information.

Phishing

Run-of-the-mill phishing scams can cost U.S. businesses nearly $1.6 billion in a single year.

So it’s no surprise that businesses are spending more on cybersecurity now than ever before.

$250 billion Projected value of U.S. cybersecurity industry by 2023

But who’s earning that money?

Right now, companies aren’t able to find enough qualified entry-level cybersecurity professionals to hire, leaving the U.S. government, countless businesses, and many individuals exposed to cyber attacks.

Why Cybersecurity in Jacksonville?
The opportunity in Jax is massive. According to research from cyberseek.org, the Bold City currently has over 3,200 unfilled cybersecurity roles and a very low supply of cybersecurity talent.
To put this in perspective, most jobs in the US have a supply/demand ratio of 4.9 and most cyber-specific jobs have a ratio of 1.9. This means a job seeker is almost 90% more likely to find an open cybersecurity role. In Jacksonville, the ratio is 1.3, reflecting even greater demand for cyber talent.

Companies seeking to hire cybersecurity professionals span across all industries and company sizes, and they include CSX Corporation, FIS, and Fidelity National Financial, to name a few.

These companies are hiring for roles like Cybersecurity Specialist, Network Security Engineer, and Vulnerability Analyst. Grads studying the Cyber Bootcamp at University of North Florida curriculum have been hired for all of these infosecurity roles—and more.
