CompTIA Shares New CyberSecure Training Course With Premier Members Free Of Charge

Innovative Online Training Course Focuses on Cybersecurity Best Practices for Businesses CompTIA, the information technology (IT) industry association, announced recently that each of its premier members are eligible to receive 50 free seats for CompTIA CyberSecure, an innovative new training course on the cybersecurity best practices that are vital to protecting a business.

CompTIA CyberSecure is a self-paced, online course that builds cybersecurity awareness and knowledge throughout organizations– from the front desk receptionist to the company’s owner and top executives.
All CompTIA premier members are eligible to receive 50 free training seats for CompTIA CyberSecure as a benefit of their membership. Members can use the training for their own employees or share the course with current or prospective customers.

“Whether it’s keeping their customers safe or protecting their own data, devices and networks our members are on the front line of the cybersecurity battle,” says Nancy Hammervik, senior vice president, industry relations, CompTIA.

“We’re equipping our Premier Members with the curriculum and training required to plug the biggest hole in an organization’s security readiness – employees’ behavior.”

Research from CompTIA and other sources consistently shows that employees are the biggest factor in workplace security breaches. This risk is only heightened as the workforce becomes more mobile, and more connected devices come into the workplace.

Yet according to a 2015 CompTIA-commissioned survey of 1,200 full-time U.S. workers 45 percent said they do not receive any form of cybersecurity training at work.

“The risks are too high and the threats too numerous for organizations to ignore the need for top to bottom security training,” says Kelly Ricker, senior vice president, events and education, CompTIA. “The lessons delivered with CompTIA CyberSecure are relevant to workers in any setting, whether it’s a small business, a mid-sized company or a large enterprise; in the public or private sector.”

Through video, animation and interactive scenarios CompTIA CyberSecure helps learners evaluate and reflect on their own security behaviors in real life situations. The training regimen educates them on the actions they should take to assure they are communicating and connecting securely in any setting.To learn more about CompTIA CyberSecure or to request a product demo, visit https://www.cybersecure.org/.
