Infosec Skills release: Close your team’s cybersecurity skills gap with custom learning paths
December 4, 2019
Custom learning paths are live in Infosec Skills, giving individuals and teams the ability to create unique training programs that align with their organization’s business objectives. A new NIST DoD Risk Management Framework (RMF) learning path was also released.
Build your own custom learning path
Skills team administrators and learners can create custom learning paths from the 500+ courses, cyber ranges and practice exams included with their subscription.
Team administrators also have the ability to promote their custom learning paths from private to team — and then assign those custom learning paths to specific groups of learners.
Custom learning paths can contain:
- Editable path name and description
- Up to 20 courses
- Cloud-hosted cyber range
- Custom practice exam
Additional custom learning path features will be released soon.
Ensure your team is developing relevant skills
Assigned learning paths are displayed on each team member’s homepage so they can easily find and start working on the skills most relevant to their job role.
Team administrators can track their team’s progress on all custom and pre-built learning paths, including:
- How many learners completed their assigned training
- Total time spent in each learning path
- Percent of cloud-hosted cyber ranges and hands-on projects completed
- Scores for skill assessments and custom practice exams
