    participation

    recognize business email compromise attacks and allows administrators
    to detect sensitive information shared in failed simulations
  • Hundreds of New Education Assets – expanded Security
    Awareness Content Library
    keeps employees cyber-sharp with new
    training resources for privacy and data protection, BEC, GDPR, PHI and
    HIPAA compliance, security champions and much more
  • PhishyDomains™ – built-in domain registration enables immediate
    creation of phishing simulations to train learners how to identify
    typosquatting

    best online experience, especially for global learning teams

Launch of InfoSec Flex Pro Spikes Online Course

InfoSec Institute's flagship training courses for IT and security
professionals saw similar first-half success. In the past twelve months,
the company trained and credentialed nearly 8,500 students, a 24%
year-over-year increase.

Instrumental to training revenue growth was the release of InfoSec

enrollments grew an unprecedented 32%. Powered by InfoSec Flex Center,
an immersive assessment and live-streaming platform, Flex Pro courses

Staffing Doubles to Meet Growth

To accommodate its accelerated growth, InfoSec Institute added staff
across all departments – doubling its headcount over last year and
opening a second Madison, Wisconsin sales office.

putting organizations of all sizes and industries at risk. Our team's
singular focus is providing the best education solutions to keep all
organizations and their employees safe from more frequent and malicious
