MADISON, WI, April 1, 2021 — Infosec, the leading cybersecurity education company, today announced that Infosec Skills has been recognized as an Excellence Award finalist in the Best IT Security-Related Training Program category for the 2021 SC Awards. Finalists are recognized for outstanding leadership and providing superior security products to the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced online during Awards Week beginning Monday, May 3, 2021.
“We are proud to be named a SC Awards finalist for IT security education,” said Jack Koziol, Infosec CEO and founder. “Our team’s committed to providing the most personalized, hands-on security and IT education platform — helping cyber professionals develop the skills to outpace today’s rapid technology change while advancing their own careers. Infosec Skill’s cyber ranges and interactive learning experience equip security pros with the know-how and confidence to outsmart cybercrime.”
Now in its 24th year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. Winners in the Excellence category are determined by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. The Excellence Awards honor the professionals, products and services that have proven to be the best in the industry for protecting today’s corporate world from an array of risks and threats.
“The last year tested security professionals perhaps more than any in history,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media and editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance. “A pandemic forced a fast transition to remote working and inspired a wave of new, sophisticated attacks, and the impact of a supply chain breach reverberated across public and private sectors. The ability for organizations big and small to turn to security partners to help address this mountain of unexpected risk was and remains critical. This year’s SC Awards finalists, all of which faced many of the same unprecedented challenges, proved their commitment to both customers and the community at large.”
The 2021 SC Awards will feature an extended and expanded celebration, honoring finalists and winners through comprehensive promotion across SC Media’s full range of digital, social and editorial channels.
