Building a Strong Cybersecurity Workforce: Bluerydge's Investment in Professional Growth
To meet the ever-growing challenges of the cybersecurity landscape, Bluerydge actively invests in its consultants, ensuring that their capabilities are continually developed and expanded, including providing them,
- with opportunities for learning and growth
- enrolling them in training programs and certifications such as Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), SABSA, and ISO 27001 Lead Auditor course, among others
- covering the expenses for advanced studies, including Masters and Doctorate level programs in Cybersecurity to enhance their knowledge and expertise, aligning theory with practical experience
Since its inception in 2019, Bluerydge has emerged as an award-winning, Australian-owned and operated cybersecurity and technology firm that is committed not only to securing our nation's information but also empowering its own team members. This commitment to continuous skill development and professional growth has been instrumental in Bluerydge's journey and its impressive and significant increase in workforce.
In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the demand for skilled cybersecurity professionals is more critical than ever. AustCyber and Australian Cyber Security Growth Network estimated that Australia will require around 17,000 cyber security professionals by 2026. The growing number of cyberattacks has made it essential for the government and private organisations to implement cybersecurity solutions to mitigate or even reduce the impact of such events. With cyber threats becoming increasingly sophisticated, the Australian cybersecurity workforce has a pivotal role to play in safeguarding our digital infrastructure and national security.
To meet the ever-growing challenges of the cybersecurity landscape, Bluerydge actively invests in its consultants, ensuring that their capabilities are continually developed and expanded, including providing them with opportunities for learning and growth. The company fosters a culture of continuous improvement by providing its team members with valuable learning opportunities. These include enrolling them in training programs and certifications such as Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP), SABSA, and ISO 27001 Lead Auditor course, among others. Moreover, Bluerydge goes the extra mile by covering the expenses for advanced studies, including Masters and Doctorate level programs in Cybersecurity to enhance their knowledge and expertise, aligning theory with practical experience.
In addition, as part of their commitment to excellence, Bluerydge consultants undergo the thorough ACS (Australian Computer Society) professional certification process. This assessment considers their education, work experience, and training, ultimately leading to the attainment of industry-recognised certifications such as Certified Professional (CP) and Certified Technologist (CT).
With their team members holding these specialist skills and credentials, Bluerydge can offer clients comprehensive knowledge and technical excellence. This expertise equips Bluerydge consultants to provide more effective responses to the evolving landscape of cyber threats and incidents while providing clients the assurance that their assigned consultant has been through the rigors of the certification process meaning they are receiving the best level of support.
To quote Jim Boekel, Bluerydge CEO: “Bluerydge has always focused on providing a supportive environment for professional development and combined with our amazing and motivated staff, we have a winning formula that benefits both our staff and clients!”
Bluerydge's dedication to empowering its team extends beyond internal programs. The company has forged a strategic partnership with ACS, and through this collaboration Bluerydge gains access to tailored professional development activities, aligning with the specific needs and capabilities of their consultants.
Furthermore, ACS assists professionals in building effective networks with industry peers and experts through networking events and conferences, thereby facilitating knowledge sharing and growth opportunities.
In a world where cybersecurity is paramount, Bluerydge remains steadfast in its dedication to cybersecurity excellence, especially through its growth and evolution.
