I have had quite a few good interactions with the Licence CDAISI ("CYBER
in Maubeuge/Valenciennes, northern France. It's equivalent to a bachelor in
IT security and it's a public university so it's practically free. Last I
heard, they have a greater success every year so are getting more and more

A newspaper clip about them:

> Bonjour,
> I have a young (17) French family member who is interested in a career in
> security.
> If he was English and in the UK I would probably recommend the academic
> route due to his age. (I know you don't *need* to have a formal education
> to be in security, but this is something I'd recommend because of his age
> and lack of experience)
> A college course in IT to learn the basics of programming/networking and
> then an undergraduate university course in an IT related topic, software
> development, networking, or maybe even a security specific course. And then
> move into an intership in a security related role after university.
> I think because my experiences are UK based and all the resources that I
> know of are in English my advice to him may not be that useful. I'm also
> not familiar with the French educational system.
> What advice would you give as French security professionals to a 17 year
> old French boy who was interested in becoming a security professional?
> What resources in French would you recommend for him to look at? websites,
> podcasts, books, etc
> Thanks in advance,
> Ryan
