The time is now
There’s never been a better time to launch a career in IT Security. Cybersecurity threats are on the rise, yet in 2022 the global shortfall of cybersecurity workers will exceed 1.8 million. There are opportunities for talented, passionate young graduates in this field – with roles extending from software development to sales, support, and professional services.
Trend Micro’s Certification Program in IT Security (CPITS) reflects our commitment to closing the cybersecurity skills gap and increasing diversity in our industry. Trainees undergo a free 9-week program focusing on the soft and hard skills required to start out in the field. Participants earn industry-recognised certificates and a number of those completing the program are offered employment opportunities with Trend Micro.
Over the last 6 years, some 350 aspiring cybersecurity professionals have passed through the CPITS, going on to embark on a wide range of information security careers internationally – in Brazil, India, the US, the Middle East, and Africa.
This edition of the CPITS takes place from June to August 2022. Applications for this round of the program are now closed.
