Udacity.com launched this week its School of Cybersecurity noting that there is a growing market need for skilled cybersecurity professionals.

The School of Cybersecurity is designed to provide learners with practical experience through real-world scenario projects that complement instructor-led sessions.

This initiative adds up to Udacity’s Ethical Hacker Nanodegree program.

Around half a million additional cybersecurity professionals are needed in the U.S. alone, according to the ISC association.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed more organizations to embrace remote work and digital workstreams, vulnerability to breaches has grown materially, which in turn increased the demand for hiring hard-to-find cybersecurity professionals,” said Gabe Dalporto, CEO, Udacity.
