Developed by
experts using military training methodologies from the Israel Defence Force, the
Cybint Bootcamp is an intensive, 12-week
immersive training programme that equips professionals to be job-ready to enter
the cybersecurity workforce. Globally, the Cybint Bootcamp has over 90% career
placement rate with graduates securing jobs at top-tier organisations such as
Airbus and Orange, and Managed Security Service (MSS) providers.

In Singapore, the Cybint
Bootcamp will be offered exclusively through NTUC LHUB and is supported under
the Tech Immersion and Placement Programme (TIPP), under the Techskills Accelerator (TeSA) initiative.
This will be the first cybersecurity immersive
training supported by TIPP and it aims to successfully build a robust
pipeline of cybersecurity professionals to support Singapore’s ambitions to be
a cybersecurity hub.

Leveraging the strengths of
NTUC LHUB and Cybint, participants in this programme will undergo expert-led
classes leveraging Cybint’s learning platform, as well as career guidance and job
preparation support from NTUC LHUB. To facilitate job
placements for those looking for a career in cybersecurity upon graduating from
the bootcamp, NTUC LHUB will support learners beyond the classroom through personalised
career coaching and mentoring sessions with experienced mentors. NTUC LHUB’s dedicated
industry outreach and engagement unit will also organise virtual career fairs
and leverage their recruitment platform to help bootcamp graduates land a job
with their newly gained skills.

Subsidies are available to
Singaporeans who intend to undergo a career switch to cybersecurity to take on
entrant-level jobs in cybersecurity, in the areas such as Cybersecurity
Operations, Incidence Response, Threat Analysis and Cyber Forensics. The topics
covered in the Cybint Bootcamp are aligned with the Skills Framework for
Infocomm Technology in Singapore as well as the National Initiative for
Cybersecurity Education (NICE) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework in the US.

“We are heartened that
Cybint and LHUB are partnering to groom cybersecurity talent,” said Chief Executive,
IMDA, Lew Chuen Hong. “This bootcamp will allow more Singaporeans to gain tech
skills in the growing cybersecurity field. As Singapore charts its way for
economic recovery, we will step-up to create more jobs and opportunities for
our people in the digital economy, through upskilling and reskilling. IMDA
encourages more partners to come forward to work with us and provide a good
diversity of tech jobs and training opportunities for Singaporeans.”

This is Cybint and NTUC
LHUB’s second collaboration. NTUC LHUB partnered with Cybint last year to offer
Cybint’s Cyber Security Protection Program (CSPC) — an expert-led cybersecurity
training course that upskills and builds additional proficiency in professionals
with cyber experience. To date, the programme has trained over 1,000 professionals
in Singapore through the short course format.

“In the New Normal, digitalisation
will accelerate and so will the risks of cyberthreats. As a Smart Nation with a
high level of digital connectivity, cybersecurity is a national priority and
Singapore needs world-class cybersecurity talent so that we can all thrive in
the digital economy safely and confidently,” said NTUC LHUB CEO, Kwek Kok
Kwong. “To ensure our workers are prepared, we work with leading global
partners such as Cybint to ensure that cutting-edge knowledge is accessible. We
are confident that this bootcamp with Cybint will be a new form of world-class,
accelerated training in cybersecurity. Importantly, there are promising job
opportunities in this domain. Given Cybint’s proven record of job placements
for its graduates globally and our network in Singapore, we are excited to grow
this partnership with Cybint to prepare more Singapore workers for jobs in this
emerging field.”

training,” said Roy Zur, Cybint Founder and CEO. “Our partnership has been very
successful in supporting those in the cyber field and we’re pleased to evolve
our relationship and look forward to more growth and success in the Southeast
Asia region.”
