SecureSet Academy in the News: Colorado Springs Business Journal

January 13, 2017 | SecureSet Academy is honored to have been included on the Colorado Springs Business Journal “10 Companies to Watch” list. We look forward to being a part of the thriving community in the Springs.


"SOME WITH NEW SUCCESS UNDER THEIR BELT, OTHERS FACING CHALLENGES IN THE NEW YEAR — THESE 10 COMPANIES WILL HELP SHAPE THE BUSINESS LANDSCAPE IN 2017."


Denver-based firm SecureSet moved to Colorado Springs last year, bringing a community-focused approach to the cybersecurity space.

SecureSet Academy, one of its entities, is a comprehensive cybersecurity education program that kicked off its first CORE Technical Bootcamp course this week, and later this month will launch its CORE Technical Bootcamp Program to equip security professionals with basic networking or programming skills.

The Department of Veterans Affairs recently added SecureSet to its list of schools that can obtain GI bill funding from eligible veterans.

The academy will launch its new downtown campus in April, and plans to have more than 40 cybersecurity bootcamp graduates, more than 20 local hiring partners and an expanded partnership with UCCS and the National Cybersecurity Center by the end of the year, according to Brad Davis, vice president of marketing and recruiting for SecureSet Academy.

“Our Colorado Springs location will serve both the veteran and civilian communities, closing the security skills gap will require full community engagement,” he said.

And watch for SecureSet’s Accelerator — expected to come to Colorado Springs in the near future and designed to grow local cybersecurity startups through funding, partnerships and mentorship.
