Your Instructor

Stacey Champagne

Certified Forensic Computer Examiner (CFCE)
Insider Threat Program Manager (ITPM)

I started my post-college career as a graphic designer, making $50,000 a year, driving a 14 year old car and renting a room because it was all I could afford in a high cost of living area. I had big ambitions and big plans for my life, but it became apparent very quickly that my career was not in alignment with my dreams.

Fast forward 5 years and a career pivot, I’m now making 4x more money in a highly rewarding field. There’s a TON of opportunity to grow, amazing benefits, and a level of flexibility and balance that enables me to get the most out of life beyond the work.

My own success is why I strongly believe cybersecurity careers are a means to disrupt the inequity of wealth and power in society, and an avenue for unlocking your greatest potential.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you calling it a "beta" cohort?

“Beta” can be defined as a nearly complete prototype of a product.

Women who participate this November/December will be among the first to ever experience this program. By offering a “beta” run, we’re able to test and assess what resonates with participants. Feedback will be incorporated into the final version that launches in Spring 2021.

Recognizing the “WIP” nature of being part of a beta course, this also means that participants will pay significantly less while getting a TON of value and attention.

What's the time commitment?

In total approximately 10 hours, spread out over six weeks.

Virtual sessions are 1-hour each and held via Zoom on Tuesdays from 6PM-7PM CT.

Some sessions may have pre-work and/or post-work to complete in the accompanying workbook.

Is there a payment plan option?

Yes! You can either pay $297 at once, or for more flexibility you can pay $150/mo for two months.
