The idea of establishing the Cyber Command Knowledge Center was born in 2014, after its founders noticed that cyber security entities in various organizations in Israel were in need of competent professional employees with deep knowledge of the cyber security field.
After visiting existing colleges which feature cyber security study programs, they came to the understanding that there was no connection between what the students were learning in the various courses and the knowledge required by cyber security experts in national defense bodies, government ministries and leading technology companies in the area.
They also realized that the only graduates who will be able to enter the industry and reach key positions in both the private and public sectors would be those who will excel in, and be at the forefront of, cyber security software and technology.
The Cyber Command Knowledge Center has vowed to train the future generation of cyber security experts in the industry by offering them to learn from Israel’s leading experts in the field, placing maximum emphasis on hands-on training in the various topics.
The Cyber Command Knowledge Center’s curriculum includes a wide range of topics which are necessary for any cyber security expert. The founders’ vision is to train students who will later serve as a cyber security knowledge center in their respective organizations
“I think that both sides are fed up.
Organizations which needed cyber experts are fed up! They were fed up with interviewing guys with a certificate who only learned from a set of slides. The young people who were earning certificates were also fed up, because they realized after the first interview or two that all they had was a piece of paper, which gave them no entry to the place where they really wanted to be.”
