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 the current global shortfall of cybersecurity workers has been estimated at over 3 million. There are tremendous opportunities for passionate young talent entering 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 10-week program focusing on the soft and hard skills required to succeed 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, over 400 young cybersecurity professionals have passed through the CPITS, going on to embark on a wide range of information security careers internationally – in Australia, Brazil, India, the US, the Middle East, and Africa.
The next edition of the CPITS takes place from January to March, 2023 and will combine remote (virtual classroom) study with a period of ‘in-person’ training. The program is open to candidates in South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, and Mauritius.
