The cyber skills gap is one of the most pressing challenges facing the industry today.

Despite the industry's rapid growth, there is a significant shortage of qualified professionals – particularly from non-traditional communities, as open opportunities aren’t accessible to everyone.

The Ballistic X Pursuit Cyber Fellows program aims to tackle this challenge head-on. Tapping into Pursuit’s proven software development training program, the Ballistic X Pursuit Cyber Fellows program empowers talented adults from non-traditional communities to get the training and support needed to be hired and retained and to succeed in the cybersecurity industry.

Ballistic is invested in cultivating future leaders with a broad understanding of the technical and contextual challenges facing the cyber industry, and we believe Pursuit has the experience and talent to create this pipeline while building a more inclusive workforce.”

Founding Partners

Founding members of this transformative program have committed to employing fellows on their cybersecurity teams. For founding members and employers who sign on, the Ballistic X Pursuit Cyber Fellows program helps nurture long-term talent through three-years of on-the-job support and training.

Consider joining the partnership

By creating pathways to cybersecurity careers, the Ballistic X Pursuit Cyber Fellows program will transform people, families and industries. However, this transformation requires the community’s support. The collective is calling on all corporations with cybersecurity hiring initiatives in 2024 to explore the program and consider partnering.

We will be at RSA 2024 and we’d love to meet you. Please get in touch with us at cyber@pursuit.com.

Our engineering team has worked with Pursuit for years, and from a cybersecurity perspective, this just makes sense. Not only does this new initiative contribute to closing the industry's talent gap, but it also provides access to a broader pool of individuals who are well-versed in a modern tech stack with targeted cyber training. We are proud to be a part of this initiative."
