MiC LEAD Builders™

The MiC LEAD Builders™ course is specifically designed to assist entry to mid-career cybersecurity professionals build out their cybersecurity subject matter expertise. Unfortunately, what often happens with MiC Builders™ is that they become so focused on deepening their cybersecurity knowledge they have a difficult time identifying and articulating their success or knowing how to strategically plan out their successive career moves. By solely focusing on technical skills in a specific area MiC Builders™ often hit a wall and do not know how to transition to different and related areas in cybersecurity to avoid burn out. 

The MiC LEAD Builders™ program focuses on building resilience in our entry to mid-level professionals by training and providing them with the things they need to effectively manage their career. MiC Builders™ are taught that their career is in their hands, and they should approach it thoughtfully and strategically to build out the career they desire. The MiC LEAD Builders™ program is a five (5) month, 30-hour program that helps individuals explore how to set up a foundation for building a successful cybersecurity career.
