Coalfire will leverage Infosec Skills to provide ongoing, hands-on training for the variety of cybersecurity professionals and developers that not only create their cloud security solutions, but also advise clients and protect client data. The training will complement Coalfire’s robust Learning and Development program through role-guided learning, equipping each learner with skills to combat the latest threats in their area of expertise.
“We’re proud to collaborate with Coalfire to deliver role-guided cybersecurity training tailored to not only their goals but also to the ever-changing threat landscape as the world moves to the cloud,” said Jack Koziol, CEO and founder of Infosec. “Infosec Skills goes beyond simulated attacks by placing learners inside realistic scenarios with clear learning objectives at every step. This makes learning both engaging and actionable while helping cybersecurity leaders like Coalfire better equip their team to counter real-world threats.”
