Cybrary launched on January 13, 2015. Our goal is to provide the opportunity to learn Cyber Security, to anyone, anywhere, who wants that opportunity. We believe everyone deserves an opportunity, and that opportunities should not be limited to people who “win the birth lottery”. Fortunately, the internet enables us to do this. We are working to make the cyber security industry a more level playing field where everyone has the educational tools they need to be competent and confident. Cybrary is a growing community where people, companies and training come together to give everyone the ability to collaborate in an open source way that is revolutionizing the cyber security educational experience.
In other words, we are creating the ability to bring all the best cyber security learning elements and content together, from the people who are doing it, the people who have done it, the people who have learned from it and the companies that are innovating on it, and deliver that for free to anyone who needs or wants to learn from it.
Startup of the Year (Others)
Best Cybersecurity Education Provider
The company was founded by Ralph P. Sita, Jr., CPA ( @ralphs , Ralph’s LinkedIn ) and Ryan J. Corey ( @ryan, Ryan’s LinkedIn ). Ralph had been in the IT and Cyber Security training industry since 2001, and Ryan since 2003. As Ralph and Ryan spent much of their careers in the training industry, they came to realize how poorly positioned the industry was to affect real change on cyber security. Millions of jobs remained unfilled in the field , and yet proper education and training for those jobs was limited to people who had the means to pay $2,500-$5,000 for a one week class, per topic.
Eventually, the industry began to change, cyber security learning started to become accessible and viable through online courses. Given that online learning has lower costs than classroom training, Ralph and Ryan decided to offer the training for free, because this was the only way to give everyone in the world an opportunity to learn. They reached out to many of their instructor friends, and in late 2014, they began creating online classes, which they would offer for free, forever.
