Boot camp certifies professionals with knowledge and skills to develop and sustain successful security awareness training programs

Infosec, the leading provider of IT security education and workforce security awareness training solutions, today launched its Certified Security Awareness Practitioner (CSAP) boot camp. The course is the first of its kind to certify professionals with the expert knowledge, skills and confidence to build and manage enterprise security awareness education programs that get results and secure end user behavior.

Infosec’s intensive, three-day Certified Security Awareness Practitioner boot camp equips professionals with everything they need to:

  • Evaluate their current security culture and human risk susceptibility
  • Assess an existing security awareness program and identify areas of improvement
  • Gain leadership buy-in and support for security education
  • Build an engaging program to boost learners’ security aptitudes, measurably drop phishing rates and cultivate an always-on, cyber-alert culture
  • Select the best KPIs to measure their programs’ reach and impact
  • Enforce security policies with a mix of positive reinforcement and administrative controls
  • Integrate awareness training into existing endpoint protection systems
  • Select the best training platform for their organization

“The best security awareness programs go beyond routine phishing simulations and training campaigns to sustainably shift workforce security culture. With our new CSAP boot camp and certification we’ll arm program managers with the strategies, tactics and ideas to kickstart a strong security awareness program and reduce cyber attack susceptibility,” said Jack Koziol, CEO and Founder of Infosec.

Infosec offers the CSAP boot camp in four flexible delivery options to suit where, when and how today’s students learn best.

  • Flex Pro: Interactive, live-streamed instruction available anywhere
