The time is now
Now’s a great time to launch your career in IT Security. Cybersecurity threats are on the rise, yet in 2022 the global shortfall of cybersecurity workers is set to exceed 1.8 million. There are plenty of opportunities for talented, passionate individuals in this field – 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. 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, more than 400 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.
The first Australia edition of the CPITS takes place from March to May 2022. Applications for this round of the program are now closed.
