Announcing the New Partnership

We are excited to announce a brand new partnership between Next Tech and Cybrary!

Keeping pace with the speed of the change in the cybersecurity industry can be one of the toughest challenges for a professional. After speaking with thousands of CISOs and security managers from leading organizations, we are finding a greater need for cybersecurity professionals to develop data science skillsets. From basic scriptwriting to automate manual tasks to leveraging machine learning for anomaly detection and generalization of malicious behavior; data science competency enables professionals to scale their activity and impact.

Next Tech’s platform for learning data science skills is parallel to none, and this partnership allows Cybrary members to develop those skills to help them prepare for new careers and develop in their current roles.

Cybrary for Business & Cybrary Insider Pro members will have access to a growing catalog of high-quality in-browser coding environments. If you have no experience in basic data science languages, you can learn the basics of Python, R, and SQL. From there, you can further strengthen your skills by going more in-depth with Deep Learning and Machine Learning in Python.
