Infosec Skills release: Provide targeted, role-based skill training with learner groups

November 15, 2019

Two new team training features are live in Infosec Skills, groups and assigned learning paths, giving team admins the ability to organize their learners and deliver relevant, role-based training. Two new learning paths were also added: the entry-level CompTIA IT Fundamentals (ITF+) certification path and the more advanced Introduction to Applied Cryptography and Cryptanalysis skill path.

Organize your team’s training with groups

Learner groups in Infosec Skills make it easy to organize your team’s training, assign relevant content and monitor ongoing skill development.

Team admins can create and manage groups from their learner management dashboard — or filter training reports to quickly view and export data relevant to each group, including:

  • Number of learners and time spent on each learning path
  • Progress on courses, cloud-hosted cyber ranges and hands-on projects
  • Scores from skill assessments and certification practice exams

Ensure your team is developing the right skills

Assigned learning paths help your team find and start working on content aligned with your organization’s business objectives. Team admins can quickly browse and assign learning paths to an individual group or to all users within the organization.

Team members will see their assigned learning paths on their homepage so they always know what skills they should be developing next.
