Industry First Safety Consciousness Practitioner Certification Offered by InfoSec Institute

August 12, 2018


Safety consciousness training for workers is now a crucial part of any cybersecurity plan, yet until lately there was no certification program available to confirm expertise in the creation and administration of these crucial training plans.

The InfoSec Institute has tackled this difficulty with the start of a boot camp. The boot camp offers necessary training in this area and verifies that IT experts have the required skills and knowledge to generate effective safety consciousness training plans and are capable of maintaining enterprise safety consciousness education programs that are effective at altering end users’ behavior.

It is one thing to provide training for the staff to eliminate dangerous behaviors, teach workers the skills required to recognize malevolent electronic mails and decrease vulnerability to phishing attacks. Nevertheless, generating effective programs is a different matter. The new boot camp assists IT experts to develop the skills they require to run campaigns with self-confidence. Getting certification will confirm to existing and potential businesses that partakers in the boot camp can create effective training campaigns and phishing simulation plans that will succeed in developing a safety culture in a business.

“The best safety consciousness plans go beyond usual phishing simulations and training campaigns to sustainably shift staff security culture,” said ack Koziol, CEO and Founder of InfoSec Institute. With our new CSAP boot camp and certification, we’ll prepare program administrators with the plans, tactics and ideas to kickstart a strong safety consciousness program and decrease cyberattack vulnerability.”

The boot camp is delivered in four types to suit students’ different learning styles: Public coaching classroom-based boot camps, coaching at customers’ places, a self-paced CBT training program, and an interactive, live-streamed course which can be taken in any place. Students can also earn CPEs for their certification by self-reporting to associations like (ISC)2 or ISACA.

The boot camp covers assessing the existing safety culture and level of vulnerability to different types of cyberattack, evaluation of existing safety consciousness plans,  getting buy-in from the board and getting support for the program, building engaging safety teaching content that noticeably decreases vulnerability to phishing attacks, picking the best SPIs to measure reach and impact, implementation of safety rules, integration of safety rules into current endpoint protection solutions, and selection of the most suitable training program for a business.
