Global Knowledge is named official training provider to grow cybersecurity skills by (ISC)2

(ISC)² has announced today that it will add Global Knowledge to its portfolio of Official Training Providers for the UK, thus expanding the range of leading training organisations offering (ISC)2 certification preparation training.

Global Knowledge will be providing exam preparation training for the full range of (ISC)2 certifications to its UK customer base, delivering pathways to new sectors and audiences, increasing the size of the UK channel presence for (ISC)2 and responding to increased demand and a growing supply shortage of certified professionals in the workforce.

Best known for the acclaimed Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP®) certification, (ISC)² is committed to promoting a holistic and pragmatic approach to security, and currently counts over 150,000 members.

Expanding the channel for (ISC)2 certification training in the region to provide more choice to learners is of paramount importance at this critical time for both the UK and the global economy,” said Deshini Newman, managing director EMEA at (ISC)2. “The world of work has changed in response to the challenges presented by the global pandemic. It has made cybersecurity skills all the more critical as organisations tackle the cyber challenge on multiple fronts – dealing with external and internal cyber threats, maintaining regulatory compliance amid evolving regulation, following best practices and securing an increasingly distributed workforce. We welcome Global Knowledge as a UK partner in delivering our shared mission and supporting the development and learning journey of cybersecurity professionals.”

As an Official Training Provider in the UK, Global Knowledge customers are assured that they are being taught by verified security experts, who are authorised to deliver the most relevant, up-to-date course content developed by (ISC)².
