This partnership was cultivated in response to the need of cyber professionals in the country, following a major Conti ransomware attack last year that crippled more than 27 of Costa Rica’s government bodies and disrupted vital economic functions including tax payments, international trade and medical appointments for weeks, costing them millions. Cybersecurity Ventures reports that global costs associated with cybercrime like the Conti attack are expected to grow by 15 percent per year over the next five years, reaching $10.5 trillion annually by 2025.

Offered by the University of Costa Rica, the Cybersecurity Impact Bootcamp by ThriveDX will prepare Costa Rica residents for entry-level roles in cybersecurity to prevent and respond to future threats to sensitive data and information. The cybersecurity training bootcamp is a non-credit certificate program designed to meet the growing demand for cybersecurity professionals in the Costa Rica region. This partnership will provide Costa Rica area learners with access to accelerated learning opportunities for those looking to transition into the cybersecurity and digital skills workforce.

Through the accelerated cybersecurity training program, learners will gain practical and theoretical knowledge delivered through demos, real-world examples, videos, infographics, quizzes, and games; technical skills, frameworks, and tools taught through hands-on exercises in virtual, instructor-led environment; and essential soft-skills training from teamwork  to interview prep embedded throughout the program.
