Tandon School of Engineering to offer offensive and continuous security validation training to optimize enterprises’ cybersecurity posture
New York, NY and Tel Aviv, IL (March 16th, 2022) - Cymulate, the Extended Security Posture Management market leader, announced today a partnership between Cymulate’s eCademy and New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering and their prestigious Master of Science in Cybersecurity Cyber Fellows program for online students. Students will earn Continuous Security Validation certification/credentials, completing courses on building an effective offensive security program and an understanding of hands-on offensive security.
“We are proud to partner with Cymulate, leaders in continuous security validation,” said Joel Caminer, Director of Cyber Security Education at NYU Tandon School of Engineering. “With the global shortage of cybersecurity professionals at around 2.72 million, we are striving to build real-world solutions to a significant and growing problem. This program will offer our students practical and essential skills needed to mitigate complex security scenarios.”
The course will allow students to become experts on managing a company’s security posture by obtaining a Continuous Security Validation Pro badge. This learning path provides a fundamental understanding of how to build an effective offensive enterprise security strategy. In addition, the learning path will cover the fundamentals of Continuous Security Validation (CSV) that are needed to optimize an organization’s cybersecurity posture.
“Cymulate has developed an extensive training program based on years of experience and real-world scenarios our teams face daily,” said Eyal Wachsman, CEO, and Co-Founder of Cymulate. “Our course provides a deep understanding of practical methods used to build an offensive strategy for enterprises, and we are very excited to be collaborating with NYU to help cybersecurity students add to their arsenal of skills.”
