Greenbridge is a new, not-for-profit organisation based in Greece, founded by experienced members of the information security community. Our goal is to connect with bright juniors who are interested in working in the cybersecurity field, help them improve their skills wherever needed, and match them with employers who are looking for remote hires.
***We provide a recommended curriculum, a method of self-education, as well as support and guidance, to our candidates. We feel confident that people who take the time to complete the Greenbridge curriculum and meet our criteria have enormous potential, not just as cybersecurity juniors, but as creative, analytical, rational, technology literate individuals. The four core elements we include in our curriculum, and assess when meeting candidates, are the following:
- Good communication skills in English
- A solid foundation in Computer Science
- A genuine, passionate interest in Information Security
- A curious mind in non-digital realms
Due to our 20-odd year professional experience in Information Security, we are well connected with employers in Scandinavia, the UK, the Baltic countries, Greece, Cyprus, the Netherlands, the US & Portugal. Furthemore, we are well connected with various universities, internet fora and other types of social networks which are populated by bright information security enthusiasts, either at the beginning of their career, or working in fields adjacent to cyber security.
Greenbridge news & updates can be found here.
Candidates: Please familiarise yourselves with our curriculum and guidelines, before reaching out. If you are comfortable working independently and can complete the curriculum by yourselves, at your own pace, then our recommendation would be to do just that. However, if you would prefer some boosting and personalised advice from us, you may consider applying for a paid mentorship over at mentorcruise.
AboutWe opted for the name "Greenbridge" as a suitable identifier for an organisation that aims to:
- Support inexperienced ("green") workers
- Create a bridge between employers and workers, often separated by large physical distance
- Build a Green Bridge (a type of Wildlife Crossing) for nonhuman animals
We strive to adhere to the following:
- Doing without
- Doing things ourselves (DIY)
- Doing things via our existing network
- We commit to donating leftover money in Greenbridge's bank to Effective Altruism's Animal Welfare Fund, once all internal company costs have been covered.
- We try to promote a flexitarian lifestyle amongst our team and the people we work with.
- Ultimately, we strive to maximise the good we can do via a utilitarian, tiered approach of helping others. Others, in our context, refers to the green workers we hope to support and the animal suffering we hope to alleviate.
Greenbridge is supported by a network of information security professionals under the general management of Stelios Tigkas. Stelios has been in the information security field for twenty years, and has experience of working as a technical consultant, security auditor, team leader and penetration tester across Europe, Asia and Africa. He likes heavy metal and stargazing.
At this early stage of our existence, we could really use your support in the promotion department.
If you or those around you are Linux geeks, Open Source supporters, anonymity & privacy zealots, obscure operating system afficionados, arduino enthusiasts, ham radio hobbyists, cryptographers, blockchain engineers, digital rights warriors, systems administrators, cryptanalysts, OpenBSD evangelists, digital media artists, explorers of esoteric languages, firewall operators, network architects or even hard science fiction writers, we'd love to hear from them!
Alternatively, you can support Greenbridge financially either via a credit card donation, or a cryptocurrency donation:
