Hyderabad: Learning platform Udacity has launched the all-new Introduction to Cybersecurity Nanodegree programme — offered in collaboration with SecurityScorecard — a start for anyone interested in this field. With this, Udacity not only acknowledges the need for safeguarding data integrity but also envisions preparing the workforce to tackle the cybersecurity paradigm.

The introductory training programme equips the participants with the right foundational knowledge to pursue additional development in the same field. It is also well-suited for IT professionals, engineering managers or even students with little knowledge of the domain looking to supplement their existing skill set.

The project-based Nanodegree program offers four courses — Cybersecurity Foundations, Defending and Securing Systems, Threats, Vulnerabilities, and Incident Response, and Governance, Risk, and Compliance. The project-learning-led course structure designed by industry experts will allow learners to not only learn the fundamentals of cybersecurity but also get to implement and test them in a real-world context.

“Our goal at Udacity is to train the world’s workforce in the in-demand careers of the future, and cybersecurity is a critical industry that’s experiencing a significant gap between demand for and supply of qualified professionals,” said Alper Tekin, chief product officer at Udacity.
