Cyber Security Learning Journey
Over the last decade, the field of cyber security has seen a rapid growth, with companies investing more and more in cyber training and certifications. In fact, cyber security has become central in every business strategy, becoming an essential, non-replaceable skill.
This is the reason why our PwC’s Academy team and our in-house cyber security experts have worked relentlessly in order to offer a unique product in the local market. In fact, In this respect, we are pleased to launch an 8-month learning journey that will lead you towards an internationally recognised certification from industry leading cyber security training providers: OffSec (formerly known as Offensive Security).
During the 8-month learning journey, students will benefit from direct coaching and mentoring from our in-house OffSec Certified Instructors, including one-to-one sessions as required.
Students will also be prepared to face the challenging 24-hour exam for the OSCP or OSDA certification, both mentally as well as technically. Our instructors will provide tips and tricks as acquired from their personal experience and success stories.
Furthermore, with this training, students will receive 1 year of unlimited access to all OffSec fundamental content (Level 100) and 365 days of lab access. This means that students can acquire additional cyber security skills in other cyber security domains (such as web security or exploit development) once the official journey ends.
In an effort to upskill people in the Cyber Security area, PwC’s Academy has worked on an exciting journey on Cyber Security with various paths to choose from, leading to internationally recognised certifications from OffSec.
The learning journey will be split into 2 main phases.
Schedule Phase 1: This is a self-paced online learning training that will start on 3 October 2023 and will end on 1 December 2023.
Security Operations Essentials (online, self-paced)

In the second phase of the journey, students will be making a decision depending on their preference and career aspirations: either follow the path towards penetration testing training (PEN-200) or otherwise take up the security operations and defense track (SOC-200).
