“We’re excited for every Infosec Skills learner to have access to this new training,” said Jack Koziol, Infosec CEO and founder. “It’s important for cybersecurity professionals to not only have ways to learn emerging skills like Internet of Things security, but to be able to certify and validate their knowledge for employers.
