Cybrary, the world’s largest online cybersecurity career development platform, today announced its latest collection of free IT and cybersecurity training and certification courses. Several courses were hand-selected to offer upskilling and career development courses directed toward actual job opportunities in the IT and security industry for anyone affected by the ongoing economic impacts of COVID-19. The other free courses were chosen to train organizations to better respond to the rise in cyber attacks that have exploded during the epidemic, and political disinformation campaigns and attempts to incite civil unrest.

This free monthly program, which launched earlier in July, empowers both those who are looking to drive professional development in their current role as well as those searching for a new career in a high-demand field. The November courses include several of the most integral and popular entry level certifications to start a career in IT or security:
- CompTIA Security+
- Cyber Network Security
- CompTIA Network+
The second group of courses delivers training on topics that are designed specifically to help organizations battle the onslaught of increased threats through common attack vectors like phishing, understanding US information privacy laws, and proper incident response investigations:
- US Information Privacy
- Executive Vulnerability Management
- Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) Investigations and Witness Testimony
“With the ongoing cybersecurity talent shortage, the unemployment crisis and the rise in phishing attacks due to COVID-19, now is the perfect time for individuals looking to make a change to get involved in cybersecurity,” said Cybrary co-founder and CEO Ryan Corey. “By offering our brand new courses along with some of the most popular entry level certifications, we want to give back by providing real opportunities for those seeking a new career path in cybersecurity.”
Learners have had tremendous success taking advantage of the free course offerings launched this summer, as the company has reported a 2.5X increase in total learning hours quarter over quarter, and up to a 30X increase in enrollments in the specific courses offered. The free courses are available on a monthly basis with the current group available until December 1st, 2020.
