Deloitte and Canada's Polytechnique Montreal have formed an agreement to update Polytechnique's cybersecurity training program in a move to address the changing cyber threat landscape.
The team revised the course content of the certificate programs in cyber investigation, online fraud and information technology network computer security, Polytechnique said Wednesday.
The new programs will be available at the Canadian engineering university beginning the fall semester of 2016.
“Knowing how to assess cybersecurity risks and guard against them is a key concern for many organizations,” said Marc Perron, Quebec region managing partner for Deloitte.
He added the partnership aims to both train future cyber professionals and support local enterprises’ cybersecurity efforts.
Deloitte and Polytechnique Montreal revamped 29 courses in the three updated programs and introduced 14 new courses to the curriculum.
Polytechnique said the certificate in IT network computer security program will be available in September as a distance-learning program and all three certificates will be released online in the winter of 2017.
Students under the programs have the eligibility to apply for internships.
