Fortinet, a global provider of broad, integrated, and automated cybersecurity solutions, has announced the availability of its Security Awareness and Training service for companies to further protect their security posture by advancing their employees’ cybersecurity skillsets and knowledge.
“Fortinet is committed to keeping organizations secure through our industry leading technology and award winning training and certifications curriculum,” said John Maddison, executive vice president of products and chief marketing officer at Fortinet. “Designed by the Fortinet Training Institute, today we’re introducing the new Security Awareness and Training service, offering any organization the ability to further protect their critical digital assets from cyber threats by building employee cybersecurity awareness. This service uniquely is informed by Fortinet’s FortiGuard Labs threat intelligence so that employees are learning and keeping up with the latest evolving cyberattack methods.”
A Fortinet survey found that 73 percent of organizations had at least one intrusion or breach that can be partially attributed to a gap in cybersecurity skills. This new service benefits any company seeking to reduce threats through employee cybersecurity awareness and training by providing curriculum from the Fortinet Training Institute, alignment to NIST 800-50 and NIST 800-16 guidelines, and intelligence-driven training.
