The Security Advisor Alliance is partnering with Fullstack Academy to align the next generation of cybersecurity talent with the needs of the industry.

The partnership kicks off with the creation of the Fullstack Cyber Advisory Board, consisting of senior professionals from Fullstack Academy, Security Advisor Alliance and leading organizations across the largest companies in the U.S., spanning multiple industries. The Board will focus on advancing Fullstack’s cybersecurity curriculum to uniquely qualify graduates for entry-level cybersecurity jobs, building the technical and soft skills that cyber employers seek in today’s evolving landscape.

“The demands on cybersecurity organizations are enormous, making it challenging to hire entry-level professionals that can hit the ground running and are ready to help reduce the risks these companies face,” explains Gary Latham, Executive Director of the Security Advisor Alliance. “As cybersecurity leaders, it’s our job to collaborate with chief information security officers to understand specifically what they need and to train emerging talent so that they are ready to quickly step into roles.” 

As part of the partnership, Fullstack Academy will provide the Alliance with the opportunity to nominate two individuals per board member for full-ride scholarships to Fullstack’s Cyber Bootcamp annually.  The partnership will also create networking opportunities for current and prospective students, including nationwide educational events hosted by the Security Advisor Alliance and its membership.

“Hiring entry-level talent is about more than just the technical skills – it’s also critical to identify individuals who will be a team fit and have the professional and communication skills to be successful in a challenging environment,” said Ann Johnson, Fullstack Academy Advisory Board Member.  “Fullstack Academy has established a name for itself in helping students gain the right foundational skillset to enter the industry. Combined with the Alliance and its network of senior cybersecurity leaders, we have the knowledge, relationships and resources to further advance training curricula that helps build entry-level talent, setting the industry up for long-term success.”
