Check Point Software Technologies, a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions globally, has announced that it has become an Official Training Partner for (ISC)², the world’s leading and largest non-profit association of certified cybersecurity professionals.

The partnership will open the door for all cybersecurity practitioners globally, with a focus on CISOs, to access (ISC)² professional certification training and exam preparation courses. Professionals can gain access to (ISC)² courses using Check Point’s cybersecurity learning credits, or by direct purchase through Check Point’s training portal.

By joining forces, Check Point and (ISC)² are giving CISOs new options to develop and attain certified cyberskills, to help them in managing the overall security postures of their organisations even more effectively.

“CISOs face a range of complex challenges right now as their organisations continue to navigate the changes to their networks due to the rapid Digital Transformation and remote working practices forced by the global pandemic. They have to maximise security with finite resources while balancing the handling of tactical issues with their strategic leadership responsibilities,” said Shay Solomon, Director of Training Business Development at Check Point Software Technologies. “By partnering with (ISC)², we can deliver new options to help CISOs further develop and certify their sector knowledge and leadership skills.” 

“Expanding our global Official Training programme with the appointment of Check Point creates new opportunities for cybersecurity professionals looking to validate their skills at a time of great disruption for a cybersecurity sector facing a profound skills shortage. The partnership between (ISC)2 and Check Point will enable more individuals across the sector on their exam preparation journey towards a world-class cybersecurity certification,” said Greg Clawson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at (ISC)².

The partnership with (ISC)² demonstrates Check Point’s ongoing commitment to providing cybersecurity education and training at all levels, from new graduates to C-level professionals. In March 2020, Check Point announced the 100th academic institution has signed up to its SecureAcademy programme, which offers a comprehensive cybersecurity curriculum to students, with courses available at over 100 universities in over 40 countries.
