What our students are saying


Anderson Andrist graduated with the inaugural cohort of New York First Cybersecurity Academy’s HUNT Analyst program in 2017. Anderson entered the Academy equipped with a background in analytics and account management, as well as an abundance of curiosity.

“I decided to leave a company I’d been with for seven years and make the leap to cybersecurity,” said Andrist. “It took three very intense months of classes, labs, studying and interviews to make my goal a reality.”

Anderson not only excelled in her classes, but alongside her team she completed a capstone project that helped her land an incredible opportunity at an information security company that provides endpoint security, threat intelligence and incident response services worldwide.
