Your day at Flatiron School

Our full-time Cybersecurity Analytics program is in session 5 days per week for 12 weeks and follows a block schedule. We employ a unique instructional architecture that maximizes instructor interaction and lab exercises. Our lab times let you engage in hands-on learning on key topics during lecture portions of the class. Most classes will meet twice a week. Each class is a half-day in length with a lunch break between classes. Throughout the Flatiron School programs, you’ll progress through longer “foundational” courses concurrent with shorter, domain-specific topics.

What is cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the protection of computer systems from theft or damage to their hardware, software, or electronic data. Our students are taught to be “ethical” hackers. They protect organizations against “threat actors” or bad hackers.

Our Cybersecurity Analytics program allows people with little to no technical experience to succeed in roles such as Threat Intel Analysts, SOC Analysts, Compliance Analysts, and Consultants.

Students can attend Flatiron School’s flagship Cybersecurity Analytics program at our Manhattan campus (11 Broadway), our London campus located in WeWork Finsbury Pavement (131 Finsbury Pavement), or our Washington, D.C. campus located at the WeWork at Metropolitan Square (1440 G St NW).
