TÜV SÜD announces its partnership with Infosec Institute, the leading cybersecurity education provider, to offer Infosec’s award-winning cyber technical skill development platform and bootcamps to their worldwide network of expert technology sales partners. TÜV SÜD provides customers and partners worldwide a comprehensive portfolio of testing, certification, auditing and advisory services.
The new reseller partnership adds the Infosec Skills platform to TÜV SÜD’s services portfolio, offering learners 1,200+ hands-on cybersecurity courses and cyber ranges mapped to the NICE Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity and MITRE ATT&CK® Matrix. TÜV SÜD clients can now purchase the platform to upskill their security teams with hands-on cyber training aligned to their existing role and future career goals or upgrade to live, instructor-led boot camps to fast-track certification success.
“We’re proud to partner with TÜV SÜD to equip even more organizations and professionals with the technical knowledge, skills and confidence to outsmart cybercrimals,” said Jack Koziol, Infosec CEO and founder. “In the past year, we have seen the impact a well-trained security team can have on mitigating and responding to cyberattacks. Partnering with TÜV SÜD enables us to expand our reach into new markets and to equip cyber professionals with the skills and training they need to keep organizations secure.”
Named a 2021 Cyber Defense Magazine Best Product for Cybersecurity Training, Infosec Skills offers a scalable training platform where cyber professionals can upskill and reskill inside the operating environments they encounter on the job. Infosec Skills recently launched the next generation of its cyber range, allowing learners to practice penetration testing, writing secure code and countering ATT&CK tactics and techniques — hands-on. Infosec Skills cyber ranges require no additional software, hardware or server space, so teams can spend less time configuring environments and more time learning.
“Knowledge and upskilling are critical to empowering the workforce in any organization, which operates at the frontline in the battle against cybercriminals,” said John Tesoro, CEO of TÜV SÜD America. “We are very excited to partner with the Infosec team, as their best-in-class cybersecurity training platform, complements our audit and other cybersecurity services, enabling us to offer our customers the enhanced value of an end-to-end solution.”
