There’s a cybersecurity problem in the U.S. and worldwide, and it’s one that could leave your business unprotected from cyberthreats — a growing workforce and skills shortage.
Madison-based Infosec aims to change that. Infosec has been fighting cybercrime since 2004, working with thousands of organizations and providing training for over 2.68 million students and professionals looking to stay a step ahead of the bad guys. Infosec’s most recent venture is targeted directly at closing the cybersecurity skills gap.
Launched in April 2019, Infosec Skills might just be the most comprehensive cybersecurity training program out there. The program was developed after hearing from IT and security professionals who asked for a program designed to help them learn to build defenses to counter tomorrow’s cyberthreats while laying out a clear path to take control of and advance their careers. What resulted is a 500-plus course program mapped to the NICE (National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education) Cybersecurity Workforce Framework, which contains entry, mid, and advanced cybersecurity roles backed by research into the actual skills requested by employers.
