Your Cybersecurity Career Starts Here

Cybersecurity Career Launch provides the resources you need to start your cybersecurity career - all available in one place.

Starting a career in cybersecurity used to be difficult...

I've worked with a lot of cybersecurity students over the years, but one a few years ago really sticks out in my mind.  

"Dave" had gone to college for a completely different career, but that didn't work out for him at all.  So, like a lot of people, he was working a non-skilled job making non-skilled money.  I still remember when he told me he was trying to sell his plasma just to make ends meet.

I didn't even know you could do that.

After getting nowhere in his first field, Dave made the decision to go back to school and pursue a cybersecurity degree.  It was definitely a good move for him.

But he soon realized he needed more than just cyber education.  He needed to know more about the cyber field itself.

Dave recognized that he didn't know much about the career options available to him in cybersecurity, nor did he know the best way to get there.

Unfortunately, getting from where you are to where you want to be in cybersecurity can be overwhelming.

I provided Dave with resources to help him find the best cybersecurity career path for him.  These are the same resources you'll find here.

Dave is now working in the field with a career that he enjoys, and one that has almost unlimited future potential.

That's what the resources in Cybersecurity Career Launch can provide - a path for you to start your cybersecurity career.

Matt provided the guidance, knowledge, and inspiration I needed to grow and excel. I'm extremely grateful for all the help that Matt provided.

Matt Day, Cybersecurity Trainer

Hi, I'm Matt Day.

I'm a cybersecurity trainer and professional with over 20 years of experience in the cybersecurity and IT fields (we didn't call it cybersecurity when I started).

Six years ago, I began coaching students that were starting their cybersecurity careers but needed guidance and assistance to help make their cybersecurity career goals a reality.

The Cybersecurity Career Launch program includes every resource I've developed and used over those six years to help people start their cybersecurity careers.  I know Cybersecurity Career Launch can help you start yours too.

Cyber career resources can be expensive...

I personally know people that have spent $200 just for help with their resume.  ‚ÄčI also know people that have spent $500 on a career coach who didn't know anything about cybersecurity.

Even though these resources were expensive, missing out on a cybersecurity career can cost you a lot more in lost wages and opportunity.

Take a moment to consider how much more you could earn if you were working in cybersecurity, or think about the future opportunities a cybersecurity career could provide.  Now consider how many more career years you have ahead of you.

How much will missing out on a cybersecurity career cost you in your lifetime?  Even delaying a move into cybersecurity until next year could cost you thousands of dollars in lost wages and opportunity.

The best time to start your cybersecurity career journey is right now.

When you sign up  for Cybersecurity Career Launch, you get immediate access to all 10 resources:

  • Resource #1: Cybersecurity Career Path Guides ($100 Value)
