Training by Job Role for Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing industries around the globe due to the constant evolution and financial impact of cyber threats. It is imperative to regularly train your Cybersecurity personnel to keep their skills razor sharp. According to ESG/ISSA research, 96% of cybersecurity professionals agree that they must maintain and regularly update their skills, or place a significant risk on their organization. Upskilling is critical in this industry simply because the lack of training can cost companies millions of dollars yearly.

To help professionals learn on-the-job skills that will propel your business forward, United Training has compiled a list of our recommended training courses for job roles surrounding Cybersecurity.
