Frequently asked questions

Who is the boot camp for?

Anyone who wants to learn how to better align security initiatives to business initiatives!  The content will be meaningful and accessible for people just starting to explore the field of cybersecurity, all the way to current CISOs. There will be something for everyone.

How does the boot camp work?

We will open the boot camp on Tuesday, April 26th.  A short (~5 minute) video along with work assignments will be provided on the 27th, 28th, and 29th. The interactive portion of the boot camp ends on Friday, April 30th, but you will keep access to the content.

The Battleship team, including Dan Blum, will be in the Academy community every day to answer questions and provide feedback. On the 30th, we will be hosting a live Ask Me Anything session with Dan for an hour to wrap up the boot camp.

What if I can't participate everyday?

That's fine! We've built the boot camp so you can do it self-paced. The content will become available each day, but you can watch the videos and work on the assignments on your own schedule. We encourage you to work on them in order, and participate in the online community chat,  regardless of when you choose to watch them.

The only activity that isn't self-paced is the live AMA session with Dan on Friday, April 30th.

How much time does this take?

Expect to spend about 1 hour a day on the bootcamp Tuesday through Friday (April 27th to 30th). How much you get out of it will depend on how much effort you put in, and when you participate is up to you!
