Fortinet, a global leader in broad, integrated and automated cybersecurity solutions, has introduced its new free Information Security Awareness and Training service for organisations looking to educate employees about the increasing risks of cyberattacks.
The Information Security Awareness and Training service – the latest initiative as part of the Network Security Expert (NSE) Training Institute – is for any organisation looking to implement or replace its information security awareness programme and was designed to align to NIST guidelines for NIST 800-50 and NIST 800-16. Additionally, NSE Certifications – which are comprised of eight levels – have qualified for (ISC)2 credit for individuals looking to maintain their CISSP credentials. This credit furthers the value NSE Certifications provide current and future security professionals.
In the wake of the health pandemic, Fortinet made all its self-paced advanced NSE security courses available for free enabling anyone to learn new skills or augment existing skills – from IT professionals to students to veterans and job seekers. As organisations rapidly transitioned to a remote workforce, which requires specialised skills to properly secure remote access and new environments being spun up, Fortinet saw a significant uptick in demand for its NSE training and certifications.
By extending access to its NSE training with free courses, Fortinet sought to create more career pathways for those wanting to further advance their security knowledge or start a career in cybersecurity.Click below to share this article
