Certifications & Security Clearances

It's no secret that cyber threats are evolving, becoming more sophisticated, and having greater impacts on individuals, businesses, and the government enterprises. Large businesses globally lose millions to cybercrimes each year and companies in every vertical are taking cybersecurity seriously. According to The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, projects that employ information security analysts will grow at 32 percent between 2018 and 2028, which is higher than the average for all other occupations. This rapid increase in demand for employees with highly specialized knowledge and hands-on skills for identifying and responding to cyber threats. The team at Rhombus5 is comprised of industry professionals that hold advanced degrees from ABET accredited institutions. Additionally, the Rhombus5 team holds multiple workforce certifications mandated by the Federal, State and Local governments to satisfy requirements outlined in DoD Directive 8570.01.
