*Recognizing cybersecurity is everyone’s job, Infosec provides security education for every role within an organization. It provides skills development and certification training for IT and security professionals while building the entire workforce’s security aptitude through awareness training and phishing simulations. This holistic approach to security education helps organizations build their security threat defenses across all levels and lower their cyber risk enterprise-wide. Organizations benefit from a single-source relationship and support from an industry-leading veteran of cybersecurity education.

A first in the industry, Infosec Skills is mapped to the NICE Cybersecurity Workforce Framework, which contains entry, mid and advanced cybersecurity roles backed by research into the actual skills requested by employers. The program helps build cybersecurity knowledge across more than 50 skill and certification learning paths. Each learning path contains a collection of courses structured to progress knowledge and close any skill gaps — along with hands-on cyber ranges and certification practice exams to build confidence.

*Infosec's team of instructional designers, content developers and trainers have used science-backed education methods to develop all Infosec Skills and Infosec Flex course lectures and study materials as well as Infosec IQ’s security awareness training modules, videos and assessments. The company is known for its rigorous approach to developing consistently high quality, award-winning content. The result is an unmatched 93% exam-pass rate for Infosec Flex students and phishing susceptibility rates of 1% or lower for Infosec IQ clients.

*As one of few non-venture-backed cybersecurity education vendors in the market, Infosec has proven its success and stability with a 101% ARR in 2019 and 19 consecutive years of profitability.
