Why We Do It

We are a team of passionate cybersecurity professionals believing that the cybersecurity field can provide an exciting and rewarding career for those interested in exploring the opportunities. This field is in dire need of an additional skilled workforce.

We tried to talk with intelligent, skilled people who could help close the workforce gap and we’ve learned that many want the training and accreditation needed to be a cybersecurity professional. The problem: too many barriers to entry, including concerns about the complexity, the time required, and – the biggest hurdle – the cost of training.

Now, Inteligenca Inc. has created this fast track program – to inspire, train, certify, mentor, and provide opportunities for those wanting highly rewarding careers in cybersecurity. We are tech professionals. We’ve hired trainers. We’ve designed training workshops. Perhaps most important, already hundreds of students have gone through the training and are already enjoying their new jobs … and now, we are ready for even more people to join us.!
