New Agreement with (ISC)² Official Training Provider Net Security Training Enhances Access to Professional Recognition with CISSP and CCSP

Net Security to provide public classes and expand certification opportunities for its UK government and FTSE 250 portfolio

London – March 19, 2018 – (ISC)², an international nonprofit membership association with more than 130,000 certified cybersecurity professionals worldwide and Net Security Training, a well-established cybersecurity training specialist working with FTSE 250 companies and the UK government, today announced an agreement to make Net Security Training an (ISC)² Official Training Provider. The agreement enhances availability in the UK for training that prepares candidates for (ISC)² globally recognised cybersecurity certifications, including the Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP®) and the Certified Cloud Security Professional (CCSP®). Classes, open to individuals and companies of all sizes, begin in May.   

Richard Nwanze, CEO at Net Security Training says: “We plan to develop this engagement to help British organisations resolve the comprehensive cybersecurity skills gap that they are facing today. We are fielding a backlog of demand from students looking for security-focussed training that is both comprehensive and covers the high-level requirements needed. This partnership with (ISC)² is a first-rate choice that reflects our commitment to work with product leaders in the information security space.”

Faisal Malik, Business & Market Development Manager for EMEA at (ISC)² adds: “We are pleased to join forces with Net Security Training to help more people discover the breadth of opportunities and rich careers to be had in cybersecurity, as we provide access to the training that helps them gain the professional recognition that comes with our internationally-recognised certifications.”

Results of the 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study, conducted by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education and sponsored by (ISC)², forecasts 350,000 more jobs than skilled European cybersecurity professionals in the field by 2022, while 66 percent of organisations in the UK have outlined they already have too few cybersecurity experts on their team.

The  (ISC)2 certification courses join a comprehensive portfolio offered by Net Security Training:  They are a CREST-accreditated course provider, and provide three Education & Skills Funding Agency-approved Apprenticeship programmes. The (ISC)2 certifications confirm broad, comprehensive professional knowledge in the critical areas needed to develop and protect systems and data in current business and working environments. The five-day training course supports candidates’ pursuit of certification and is based on (ISC)2 education materials. Candidates that go on to pass an (ISC)2 examination and endorsement gain membership to (ISC)2,  continuing professional educational resources, and the support of a global practicing community.
