Cybersecurity Academy

Cybersecurity is the body of technologies, processes and practices designed to protect networks, computers and data from attacks, damage and unauthorized access. Cybersecurity training teaches professionals to spot vulnerabilities, immediately respond to emergencies and fend off attacks.  Willis College has taken the lead in addressing the critical cybersecurity skills shortage by establishing the Willis Cybersecurity Academy.  The academy is equipped with our partners’ state-of-the –art network devices and uses an industry standard curriculum taught by our professionally trained instructors. All of this combined provides a comprehensive offensive and defensive cybersecurity training environment.

Our Cybersecurity Analyst (CSA) program teaches these concepts and makes use of our Cybersecurity Academy resources. The Cybersecurity Analyst program is the first cybersecurity program in Canada to be recognized by the Department of National Defense and the Canadian Armed Forces.
