Hands-on cybersecurity training solutions unveiled to help organizations fill the cyber skills gap and bolster security posture

Infosec Institute, a leading cybersecurity education company and part of Cengage Group, announced a hands-on supply-chain cybersecurity workshop and role-guided training solutions they will showcase at the RSA Conference, June 7-9, 2022, in San Francisco, CA. Infosec will highlight a range of solutions including proprietary, role-guided training roadmaps, gamified security awareness programs and a chance to experience their industry-leading training firsthand with an incident response security workshop focused on supply chain security.

Record numbers of cyber incidents and open cybersecurity roles in 2021 fueled the need for security education to strengthen organizations’ security cultures, upskill cyber teams, reduce business risk and meet compliance. To help overcome these challenges, Infosec has developed new solutions within their Infosec Skills and Infosec IQ training platforms to help organizations scale effective, role-guided cyber education to every employee.

“RSA’s theme of ‘transform’ is fitting, as it is time for our industry to reexamine how we provide security training that is engaging and impactful. To build a security culture, we must invest in our people and how they perceive cybersecurity at work and home,” said Jim Chilton, GM of Infosec and Chief Information Officer at Cengage Group. “Whether it’s security awareness training or hands-on technical training, Infosec will continue to invest in making learning both fun and actionable, while helping security leaders better equip teams to counter real-world threats.”

RSA attendees will have the opportunity to experience Infosec Skills training firsthand, with a hands-on lab session on securing the supply chain led by Infosec’s principal security researcher, Keatron Evans.
