Katz School, ISACA Partner on Cybersecurity Careers

The Katz School of Science and Health is partnering with ISACA, a global learning organization and technology association, to provide Katz students with educational, training and networking opportunities for cybersecurity careers.

ISACA will offer its CSX Cybersecurity Practitioner (CSX-P) certification and one-year ISACA student membership at a discount to Katz students, who will also be able to participate in networking and mentorship opportunities through the ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter. In addition, faculty and the ISACA chapter will conduct workshops, conferences, seminars and other events to share ideas, knowledge and best practices.

"The relationship with ISACA is an important opportunity for Yeshiva University students to network with industry professionals, as well as enable them to get industry-recognized cybersecurity certifications from a trusted global leader," said Katz School Dean Paul Russo.

The ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter and its members will support Katz students with mentorship, training, immersive learning, networking and career development opportunities.

“We are excited to help launch this innovative and groundbreaking initiative that has resulted in a collaborative partnership offering a plethora of opportunities to Yeshiva University students and ISACA members,” said Karen Alexander, president of the chapter.

ISACA works with academic institutions, nonprofits, industry and government to address the cybersecurity skills gap and prepare diverse cybersecurity professionals to make a meaningful difference within the global cybersecurity community through education, training and professional development opportunities.

“As a global learning organization, ISACA is excited to partner with the Katz School of Science and Health and our ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter to develop a strong, ethical cybersecurity workforce,” said ISACA Chief Product Officer Nader Qaimari. “Through our collaboration, we will ensure Yeshiva University graduates are well-positioned for impactful careers in cybersecurity.”
