Patriot Strategies, SANS Institute to support inaugural Federal Cybersecurity Reskilling Academy

Patriot Strategies LLC has announced their support in assessing, training and certifying federal employees for the Federal Cybersecurity Reskilling Academy (FCRA), the company said.

This pilot is a partnership with Office of Management and Budget, the Department of Education, and the CIO Council. Patriot Strategies is also proud to welcome the SANS Institute, which will provide training support for this exciting initiative.

The FCRA pilot program is a three-month accelerated cybersecurity training program resulting in participants earning industry-recognized GIAC certifications. The inaugural class will be made up of current federal employees who do not work in the IT field and provide them the necessary training to qualify as Cyber Defense Analysts.

The SANS Institute was established in 1989 as a cooperative research and education organization. SANS is the most trusted and, by far, the largest provider of cyber security training and certification to professionals at governments and commercial institutions world-wide. Renowned SANS instructors teach over 60 different courses at more than 200 live cyber security training events as well as online. GIAC, an affiliate of the SANS Institute, validates a practitioner´s qualifications via over 30 hands-on, technical certifications in cyber security.
