A word known to the general public
The word “cybersecurity” has grown in popularity over the years. This term made its way out of specialized technical and scientific reviews to now reach a broader audience. TV channels, local media, all speak about cyber. If it is somehow challenging to find a common definition, we make an attempt here to explain what cybersecurity means to us.
Several members of the team, present since the creation of our school, come from the cybersecurity field: CISO, IT / OT security, Network Manager, all are keen to share their passion for this domain. Cybersecurity represents a new challenge every day. From a minor security incident to a major cybersecurity crisis, you have to be agile to deal with the most pressing issues and find the appropriate remediation solutions, be objective when it comes to assessing the risks, and remain pragmatic to provide a realistic action plan. We are passionate about cybersecurity, and we want to pass this passion on to our learners!

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the field of cybersecurity the same internationally?
Yes, cybersecurity is one of the few areas where the location in which you practice has little to no impact on the ways of working. This is why it can be useful to master another language in addition to your mother tongue.
Why are there few women in cybersecurity?
11% of women in cyber, there is still a long way to go to ensure better representation of women in this field. Cybersecurity requires a wide range of skills, everyone can contribute and each brings a different vision. Our ambition is to open the field of cybersecurity to women, to students with a so-called “non-scientific” profile, to employees in retraining and to all those who today feel less legitimate to evolve in this domain.
Is cybersecurity only about fighting cybercriminals?
No, a multitude of jobs exist in the cyber field, which is why the single profile for job holders is neither desired nor desirable for the future.
