Infosec unveils role-guided cybersecurity training roadmaps 

Cybersecurity
education
company
Infosec
Institute
has
unveiled
Infosec
Skills
Roles,
pre-built
training
roadmaps
aligned
to
the
12
most
in-demand
cybersecurity
roles,
including
SOC
analyst,
penetration
tester,
security
engineer
and
cybersecurity
beginner. 

Hosted
in
the
Infosec
Skills
training
platform,
Infosec
Skills
Roles
helps
organisations
upskill
and
cross-train
talent
for
open
security
roles
while
also
improving
engagement
and
performance.

According
to
Infosec,
there
are
more
than
600,000
unfilled
cybersecurity
roles
in
the
United
States,
with
more
than
half
requiring
at
least
one
certification.
As
critical
cybersecurity
roles
remain
unfilled
and
technology
change
continues
to
outpace
skill
development,
organisations
are
increasingly
vulnerable
to
today’s
record
number
of
cyber
threats.
Additionally,
security
leaders
face
increasing
pressure
to
prevent
and
mitigate
cyberattacks
with
overburdened
cyber
teams,
inadequate
training
programs
and
limited
resources.

To
help
cyber
leaders
upskill
and
cross-train
talent
quickly,
Infosec
Skills
Roles
provide
training
recommendations
for
12
of
the
most
common
cybersecurity
positions,
enabling
enterprises
to
upskill
and
reskill
cyber
talent
at
scale
and
individuals
to
break
into
the
industry.
Backed
by
the
research
of
skills
requested
by
employers
and
a
panel
of
cybersecurity
subject
matter
experts,
each
of
the
12
Infosec
Skills
Roles
clearly
outline
which
training
and
certifications
are
needed
so
learners
can
laser
focus
on
the
most
important
areas
to
strengthen
and
security
leaders
fill
skill
gaps
on
their
teams. 

“Filling
the
cybersecurity
talent
pipeline
with
skilled
and
certified
professionals
is
the
key
to
helping
organisations
stay
secure
and
competitive
in
the
ever-evolving
threatscape,”
says
Joanna
Beer,
vice
president
of
content
at
Infosec. 

“We
created
Infosec
Skills
Roles
to
simplify
the
process
and
make
cybersecurity
careers
more
accessible.
Both
individual
learners
and
organisations
can
use
Infosec
Skills
Roles
to
 adapt
to
different
learner
needs
and
give
people
the
skills
they
need
quickly,”
she
says.

Recently
named
a
Leader
in
IT
Training
by
IDC
Marketscape,
the
Infosec
Skills
platform
offers
1,400+
hands-on
cybersecurity
courses
and
cyber
ranges
mapped
to
the
NICE
Workforce
Framework
for
Cybersecurity
and
MITRE
ATT&CK®
Matrix.
Infosec
Skills
helps
cyber
leaders
prepare
teams
for
ATT&CK
tactics,
guide
team
development
and
fast-track
certification,
with
over
80%
of
learners
reporting
improved
skills
and
abilities. 

“We
leverage
the
NICE
Framework
Knowledge
and
Skill
Statement
mapping
inside
the
Infosec
Skills
platform
to
maximise
training
relevancy
and
accelerate
professional
development,”
says
James
Beamon,
dean
of
the
CyberEDGE
Academy
at
Leidos.

“With
the
new
Infosec
Skills
Roles,
we
will
be
able
to
quickly
point
learners
in
the
right
direction
and
fill
open
roles
on
our
team
more
efficiently.

“We
are
finding
that
retention
rates
are
going
up
in
our
cybersecurity
roles
because
people
feel
like
they’re
being
listened
to.
They’re
provided
opportunities
that
they
may
not
have
had
before.”
