"You can invest millions in IT security technology, but can you sleep well knowing your workforce can prevent cyber threats? AAbsolutely not," says, Ed Sattar, CEO, QuickStart who has invested over a decade in researching and creating standards how personalized learning experience squarely maps and increases business goals attainment by 40%. "Unless you get your cybersecurity workforce ready to adopt and use the technology by training them, you will not be able to prevent cybercrimes. Cyber criminals are very sophisticated, better equipped with tools and training. So you would have to upskill your workforce on the latest and greatest cyber security tools and process to put cyber criminals out of business," he added. "TheAnumberAof cyberattacksAand data breaches is increasing every day. Every public or private organization is at risk of data breachesAfrom internal andAexternalAthreats.AOneAof the best and proven methodsAto preventAorganizations from getting exposed to such threats is toAtrainAITAand non-IT staff regarding internet-safety to increase awareness and prevent data-leaks. However, the problem is that learner behavior is changing, and the workforce is not engaging and as receptive to training as they used to be. Hence, you have to figure out a different way to engage with your workforce, so they are having fun, learning and see how what they are learning is impacting their career and business goals. This forced us to create a cybersecurity workforce readiness platform called CLIPP," says Faisal Khawaja, VP Engineering.CLIPP platform does cyber security assessment of competencies and also takes in business goals and projects as input like Spotify and then recommends an adaptive certification and learning path based on the skill set gap and level difficulty. It also has the 'Manager Mode' feature that allows managers to assign courses to different member of their team and keep track of their progress. Besides offering official courseware from EC Council, CompTIA, Cisco, and Microsoft, the platform also offers informal learning through external resources and knowledgebase access.
