South Africa is experiencing immense shortages of cybersecurity specialists and especially shortages in focused training opportunities for corporate staff.

The Cyber Security Institute provides training, tools, and services in partnership with academic and private institutions, such as the French South Africa Institute of Technology (F'SATI), the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and CS Interactive Training.

The Cyber Security Institute set to grow cybersecurity skills and knowledge by presenting training courses, development of tools, and provision of services to various entities in Africa.

The training courses are presented via workshops offered in Centurion and Cape Town as well as via full e-learning, to cater for local and international participants. The content is developed by specialists within the private and academic sectors and is uniquely built for the African environment.
