MADISON, Wis., Jan. 17, 2019 – Coming out of a year with record revenue and workforce growth, InfoSec Institute is starting 2019 by announcing it is a January 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training for its SecurityIQ training platform.

“Our success is built on a foundation of constant innovation driven by what our clients tell us they need,” said Jack Koziol, InfoSec Institute CEO. “This Gartner distinction is based on our clients’ opinion of our products and the service they receive. We think that makes being a Customers’ Choice all the more gratifying.”

InfoSec Institute, also recognized as a November 2018 Challenger in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training for SecurityIQ, integrates security awareness training, phishing simulations and personalized learning in one platform to drop organizational phishing susceptibility rates and motivate behavioral change.
