Cybersecurity bootcamp launching in Japan

Cybint, a global cyber education and training company, partners with Agaroot Academy, a Japanese online education leader, to launch the Cybint Cybersecurity Bootcamp for corporate clients in Japan, aimed at closing the cyber skills gap in the region.

The Cybint Bootcamp at Agaroot is structured to future-proof workers on a global scale with cyber skills, ensuring they can protect their organizations from emerging cyber threats. One of the first sales partners with Agaroot for the new bootcamp is LAC, a major managed security service provider in Japan.

“This collaboration is marking the beginning of real, exponential growth of the cybersecurity workforce in Japan,” says Roy Zur, Founder and CEO of Cybint. “It is an honor for Cybint to partner with Agaroot and LAC, and connect the dots between hands-on learning, launching careers in cybersecurity, and closing the employment gap in Japan“.

“Recently, the risk of corporate data mismanagement due to information leakage by cyber attacks has increased,” comments Hokuto Iwasaki, Founder and CEO of Agaroot. “Training engineers who are familiar with cybersecurity is an issue and we are very pleased to be able to provide assistance to solve this by partnering with Cybint, who has a track record of global cyber education, and LAC Co., Ltd., who are leading cyber experts in Japan.”

“LAC is welcome to introduce the cybersecurity training provided by Cybint to Japan,” says Shunsuke Higashi, General Manager of Digital Innovation Department of LAC. “These days, it requires more practical training in cybersecurity under the circumstances that our businesses are connected globally through digital devices. Cases of cyber incidents occurring abroad are spilling into Japan. It is necessary to nurture skilled human resources who can understand and practice high-level cyber technology in order to take effective cybersecurity measures.”

Israel is well-known for their cyber expertise and Cybint is an Israeli company that has experience implementing cybersecurity training all over the world. It is our pleasure to raise awareness of Japanese organizations and support upskilling in cyber by introducing the Bootcamp into the online curriculum of LAC Security Academy, which has been successful in a number of trainings in Japan.”
