The most cost-effective way to address the cyber skills gap in your organisation

Organisations around the world are struggling to keep up with cyber demand to protect their digital assets – in fact, the demand is so high, there are more than 1.8 million unfilled cyber roles in the UK alone.

The most effective way to combat this problem is to upskill existing staff—or those looking to change careers—into technical and non-technical cyber security roles.

The PGI Cyber Academy provides clients with reskilling programmes designed to train staff more effectively, drive hiring costs down and improving employee retention.

Internal programmes
We work regularly with UK Government, international governments, partners and corporate clients to transition existing staff with aptitude, or to identify and recruit new talent into newly qualified cyber security practitioners, to begin working in the various domains the industry requires.

We have designed and delivered skills development programmes that provide organisations with achievable life-long learning pathways through clearly defined education, enabling them to protect their own assets or provide their own clients with their expertise in defending against the cyber threat.

How do the programmes work?

PGI Cyber Academy work with you to design a training programme to fit your operational requirements – either by very specific job roles or across a range of similar skills requirements. Within your current workforce we can either identify suitable staff for applying to new roles or we can assess recommended staff for aptitude and appetite.

We confirm a schedule, dates and locations and get to work. Our programmes begin with an introduction to the industry, its terminology and context. We then enter a period of technical upskilling before focussing on key areas within cyber or information security. Our trainers apply their operational expertise and support in a mentoring capacity during the entirely of the programme.

About our trainers

Our operational staff bring experiences from UK Government, law enforcement, military, financial, critical infrastructure and commercial sector experience to the learning environment. They keep their cyber security knowledge up-to-date through operational work delivering consultancy and technical services, such as UK Government approved Incident Response and Penetration Testing. Our staff are also accredited as trainers by the UK Government.

This expertise informs the design and delivery of our training programmes to ensure learners receive appropriate baseline knowledge for entering the cyber security industry.
