Our Apprenticeship Program combines real-world experience with classroom learning to develop a highly-skilled cybersecurity workforce.

To meet the growing need for an experienced and highly-skilled cybersecurity workforce ISG launched our Cybersecurity Apprenticeship Program (CAP) in 2016. This 3-phase program provides talented individuals with validated technical skills access to subject matter experts, training in virtual environments and hands on experience dealing with real-world cybersecurity issues. This enables us to bring them up to speed in a fast and efficient manner and offer our clients a new generation of cyber talent uniquely suited to meet their specific needs.
