To help close the workforce gap, (ISC)2 recently launched the Certified in Cybersecurity (CC) entry-level certification. With no experience required, it opens opportunities in the field to a much broader range of candidates, including recent graduates, career changers and IT professionals. CC starts newcomers on their path to advanced cybersecurity certifications like the CISSP and future leadership roles.
Official (ISC)² Certified in Cybersecurity (CC) Entry-Level Certification Training will review the content covered in the exam. It prepares candidates by building a solid foundation of knowledge they need to pass the exam and ultimately land an entry- or junior-level cybersecurity role.
