In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

• Cybrary is helping to educate and strengthen the knowledge of cybersecurity professionals by providing free cybersecurity training classes to anyone anywhere, whether they are just starting out on a cybersecurity career or they are an experienced professional. The company believes that cybersecurity education is a right for those who wish to pursue it, not a privilege. Cybersecurity training can be as much as $5,000 for a one-week class. Providing free education eliminates financial barriers, allowing anyone to learn from and engage with the cybersecurity community.
• Cybrary plays an active role in combating the increasing global shortage of cybersecurity professionals. The demand for skilled cybersecurity professionals is growing four times faster than the overall IT job market, and 12 times faster than the total labor market. Currently, there are more than a million open job postings for cybersecurity positions around the world. By removing training costs and building the world’s largest community of cybersecurity talent, Cybrary will increase the supply side of the jobs market, bring employers and talent together, and ultimately help eradicate the cybersecurity talent shortage.
• Cybrary is making companies around the world more secure by creating and offering training courses, available to any company, which address business continuity, incident response, secure coding, and much more. Our main goal for companies is to help them mitigate the primary threat that their networks and data protection strategy face. Our training equips company employees with best practices surrounding organizational security and data protection. Both conceptual and procedural lessons are implemented so that employees are aware of security threats and trained on how to react to them.

    the best in cybersecurity education

  18. Tony Kelly on January 11, 2017 has been the best educational find for me, it continues to improve, continues to add content and the trainers I find exceptionally knowledgeable.

    They cater for all levels of learner, covering multiple areas. My particular interest is “Risk”, but I am also branching out into vulnerability assessment. has this all covered.

    The staff are friendly and helpful when contacted.

    I am pleased to be a member of the community. The ethos is great, what they have set about creating and giving to the Infosec community is without doubt second to none.

    Thanks guys
