Flatiron School acquires SecureSet to provide leading Cybersecurity education worldwide

August 22, 2019

Flatiron School was founded in 2012 with the mission of enabling the pursuit of a better life through education. Over the last seven years, we have had the opportunity to help thousands of people change their careers and lives through education. Today, we are excited to announce that we have reached an agreement to acquire SecureSet, a leading provider of Cybersecurity education, to help us empower more people to pursue what they love.

At Flatiron School, we are constantly exploring new ways to ready the workforce for what’s to come. And recently, we’ve been considering launching a Cybersecurity course at Flatiron School. Including meeting with a number of potential partners or developing our own in-house program. Our search came to an end once we met the expert team at SecureSet, and learned about its best-in-class education, high bar for job placements, and immensely talented teachers. We knew right away that they were the right partner for us and this next phase of our journey.

Founded by Dr. Bret Fund in 2014, during a time of the profound shortage of skilled Cybersecurity professionals, and an increasingly sophisticated onslaught of threats worldwide, SecureSet’s hands-on approach to teaching ensures graduates have immediate, practical skills to protect companies against the latest threats. Flatiron School’s global presence combined with SecureSet’s deep knowledge of Cybersecurity will help us deliver this industry-leading curriculum to more people worldwide.

Like SecureSet, we believe in the power of lifelong learning and how that can support a more secure and empowered future. Our shared values and student-first approach to education make SecureSet a natural fit and growth driver for Flatiron School. Bret Fund has built an incredible business, and team that we’re thrilled to welcome SecureSet to Flatiron School’s global community.

We are extremely proud of the thousands of people we’ve helped so far, and by joining forces with SecureSet, we can empower even more people pursue a better life through education. If you’re looking to explore a potential Cybersecurity career, or you would like to introduce additional security training to your team, we encourage you to visit: SecureSet.
