Cybr Becomes Newest NYU Cybersecurity Industry Partner

We have exciting news to share! Cybr is now an official cybersecurity industry partner of NYU’s Tandon School of Engineering’s Cyber Fellows program! 

What a cool way to kick off Cybersecurity Career Awareness week!

What does this mean exactly?

NYU Cybersecurity Industry Partners provide cybersecurity courses and materials to supplement NYU’s existing Cybersecurity degree programs and curriculums.

Industry Partner courses aren’t required to complete NYU Cybersecurity programs. Partner courses are viewed by Program Coordinators and Professors as supplemental instruction that cybersecurity students can benefit from taking. Students invest time outside of course requirements, take supplemental training, then receive a co-branded badge as evidence of course completion and skill-building.

NYU Cybersecurity students can now take our Introduction to Application Security course and obtain our co-branded course badge. Once they complete the course, NYU Cyber students will be encouraged to complete our newest course on another super important Application Security topic!

That’s right. A NEW COURSE IS COMING SOON! It’s a secret – for now! Curious? If so, send us your email address and you’ll be among the first to know when it’s ready. Keep an eye out for our new course announcement on November 24th.

This lecture series is awesome and FREE FOR ALL of us!

Check out these 10 FREE Cybersecurity Lectures!

Here’s the SCARY PART! I listened to half of this this lecture and learned a lot that I didn’t know before realizing that this talk was given in 2012. I repeat…2012…and it was completely worth my time to watch it today as we approach the year 2021. He could literally give this same talk today and it would be relevant to us all!

Anyone considering a career in cybersecurity should hear this talk. It could alter your perception of the importance of what you are looking to do with your life!
