Imagine a world where no predatory bootcamps and academies exist to take a veteran or military spouses of their hard-earned money for accelerator training on how to take a test.

So What is a Whole Cyber Human?
Whole Cyber Human is defined as a person who has built foundational and practical knowledge holistically in the Information Technology and Cybersecurity space. They are immersed into the full spectrum of cyber and empowered with the training to be force multipliers.
They are often considered career pivoters or potential veteran service members who have obtained critical Mid-Senior level soft and hard skills highly required in the job market.
They are our children in school who have already built an effiency in using technology.
They are the key to securing the next 20 years.
The impetus for the creation of the Whole Cyber Human Initiative is driven from the extreme alleged “talent shortage” that spreads across the globe. These in demand jobs are found vacant while human resources and hiring managers claim they cannot find talent. As leaders we can burn this broken process down and kindle the rebirth of the phoenix by reshaping of how to identify, mold, and acquire a new breed of talent throughout the industry.
