Cybersecurity talent in high demand nationally; SKYCTC CIT Lab top notch

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The cybersecurity workforce has reached an all-time high, but there’s still a global talent shortage, with more than 700,000 unfilled cybersecurity jobs in the US alone, according to Fortune.com.

One university is training the next generation of workers for that exact calling. 

Southcentral Kentucky Community & Technical College offers CIT classes in one of the best cybersecurity labs in the state.

Here, students learn how to fight and defend against cyber threats with the same high-level networking equipment they would see out in the field

The lab is completely isolated from the rest of the college campus, operating on its own high-tech server, and only used by CIT students.

SKYCTC CIT Instructor Art McFadden said, “There’s a great demand in this country, and it’s not going to go away anytime soon…We’re really fortunate to have this equipment to work on in a safe environment while gaining hands-on experience.”

Students can enroll for the course both online and in person. McFadden encourages you to reach out to join.
