This accelerated ISC2 Entry-Level Cybersecurity Certification course introduces the ultimate starting point for an exciting and rewarding career in cybersecurity —ISC2 entry-level cybersecurity certification. You don’t need work experience, just a passion and the drive to enter a challenging and rewarding field, one that protects the world from cyber threats and bad actors.

The entry-level cybersecurity certification enables students, incoming professionals and career changers to build confidence and enter their first cybersecurity role prepared for what’s next.

ISC2 has begun the exciting process of exploring the creation of a new certification. To fill the cybersecurity workforce gap, we need to address the workforce shortage facing the industry, especially among entry- and junior-level positions. A foundational cybersecurity certification will help ISC2 build a pathway to a rewarding career in cybersecurity for many around the world.

The entry-level cybersecurity certification will prove to employers you have the foundational knowledge, skills and abilities necessary for an entry- or junior-level cybersecurity role. It will signal your understanding of fundamental security best practices, policies and procedures, as well as your willingness and ability to learn more and grow on the job.

The ISC2 entry-level cybersecurity certification is the first step on a career-long journey that will help cybersecurity professionals gain experience and work toward advanced qualifications such as the ISC2 CISSP and ISC2 CCSP.

We believe a need still exists in our industry for a certification that is attainable for newcomers and recognizes the growing trend of people entering the cybersecurity workforce without direct IT experience. Employers need confidence that when hiring new entrants into the field they have a solid grasp of the right technical concepts, and a demonstrated aptitude to learn on the job. Moreover, as an ISC2 certification, the recipient will be an ISC2 member backed by the world’s largest network of certified cybersecurity professionals helping them continue their professional development and earn new achievements and qualifications throughout their career.

At the end of this course, you’ll achieve your ISC2 Entry-Level Cybersecurity Certification.

"The Firebrand Training experience was fantastic from start to finish. Excellent facilities, knowledgeable and engaging instructors, and great customer service throughout. I would thoroughly recommend."
Wesley Parsons. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"The course was excellent and well presented. Having an instructor for such a detailed and broad course was a tremendous help when preparing to sit the exam. Having passed the exam, I can happily say I don’t think I could have accomplished all I learnt within a week without Firebrand’s course."
Robert Fothergill. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"With my personal experience I absolutely recommended learners to sign up with Firebrand. I felt confident for the exam after attending the course. Comparing my experience solving practise test and exam before and after attending the course, it went up from south to north."
Ashish Nair. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"I had a great time attending the CISSP course because it gave me what I needed. A high level understanding of the material and valuable advice about how to prepare and tackle the exam. The course itself is challenging on its own but when you are with a group of like minded people it makes it fun to learn. For anyone considering taking the CISSP or using firebrand for your training, it’s a no-brainer."
Rushan Ratha. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))

"A very intense course & a huge amount to cover in the relatively short 5-day window, but the course tutor pushes through the substantial content at a steady place & ensures the essential subject elements, plus question answering techniques, were pulled out for us to focus on for the exam."
I.B., IK Tech Limited. (8/4/2024 (Monday) to 13/4/2024 (Saturday))
