SAN DIEGO, March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Security On-Demand, a leading provider of next generation managed security services announces the launch of the Cybersecurity Internship Program in partnership with National University, the second-largest private nonprofit university in California. The program is designed to offer mentorship opportunities with senior security experts and to cultivate careers for students studying cybersecurity. Over the course of the internship program, students will gain valuable hands-on experience working alongside security analysts in Security On-Demand's San Diego Security Operations Center.
National University is the first and only university in San Diego to be recognized by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Security On-Demand to offer our students the real-world experience of working in a Security Operations Center," said Dr. John Cicero, Dean of National University's School of Engineering and Computing.
Governments and private sector businesses across the globe have struggled to identify, hire and retain talented cybersecurity workers. Many of these organizations are now launching internships at the university and even high school levels to ensure they can meet their future staffing needs.
"Partnering with National University helps establish a community of information security professionals while assisting students in advancing their cybersecurity careers. Partnerships like this will be key to our continued growth," said Peter Bybee, CEO of Security On-Demand.
The Cybersecurity Internship Program is only open to students enrolled in National University's Cyber Security and Information Assurance degree program; however, Security On-Demand has other career opportunities, which you can learn more about at http://www.securityondemand.com.
