WyzGuys Cybersecurity now offers cybersecurity and IoT training as an authorized training partner with CertNexus

A single email can lead to a multi-million dollar breach in seconds, and the employee responsible may not even be aware of their mistake. The problem lies in the fact that many end users aren’t aware of the dangers accompanying today’s most common cybersecurity threats, much less how to detect them. CyberSAFE helps ensure that your end users can identify the common risks associated with using conventional end-user technology, as well as how to safely protect themselves and their organizations from security risks.

CyberSAFE is offered as both an instructor-led environment and a self-paced e-learning format.

When a cyber incident occurs, the responsibility of complying with legislative requirements often falls on the entire executive management team. After a breach occurs is not the time to begin understanding your legal requirements. This course will guide business, IT and non-technical leaders through what incident response methods and procedures align  with industry frameworks such as US-CERT’s NICSP (National Incident Response Plan) and Presidential Policy (PPD) 41 on Cyber Incident Coordination Policy. During this one day course participants will also learn best practices, mitigation methods and devices and gain understanding of current state and national incident response methods. Thinking about incident response now will allow you to lead effectively post breach.

Cybersecurity professionals require a well-rounded understanding of the tools, processes, and strategies that can be employed to defend their information systems from constantly evolving threats. CyberSec First Responder™ (CFR) is a comprehensive certification designed to validate the knowledge and skills required to protect these critical information systems before, during, and after an incident.

The CFR exam is accredited under the ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024 standard and is approved by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to fulfill Directive 8570/8140 requirements.

Rochester, New York – 10/9/2019 – WyzCo Group Inc, a leading provider of instructor-led IT Certification Training, announces the addition of in demand cybersecurity and IoT certifications to their public training schedule thanks to their new partnership with CertNexus.

As companies navigate within the furth Industrial Revolution, multi-vendor solutions are the norm to provide best in class results, ranging from customer experience to IT infrastructure. Whether it is a high value innovation using an IoT solution or maintaining secure access to protect customer data through security protocols, it is the people responsible for maintaining and implementing the solutions that provide the greatest value and highest risk to an organization. As technology becomes the de facto solution across all industries, the need for critical training standardizations is more crucial than ever.

CertNexus is committed to providing certification programs that ensure employees have best-in-class skill sets to match their organization’s critical technology solutions. CertNexus’ certification programs in cybersecurity and IoT broaden an IT professional’s knowledge and validate skills using globally recognized curriculum and high stakes examinations.

Billions of dollars will be gained and lost in these areas over the next five years.  The IoT industry is on its way to becoming a $450 billion industry, according to Bain and Company, while the average cost of a cyber-attack on a company is $2.4 million (Accenture). For an organization to succeed in this environment, training and confirming skills is the best investment towards growth.

“Cybersecurity awareness training hardens the weakest link in your cybersecurity kill-chain – the employee.  Training creates vigilance and turns average users into associate members of your infosec team.   Plus it provides the best bang for your cybersecurity buck.  We find CertNexus’ certifications are the best solution for employees and companies who are looking to create a comprehensive, proactive approach to cyber security training,” said Bob Weiss, CEO of WyzCo Group Inc.

“We’re thrilled to have WyzCo Group Inc. as our newest Authorized Training Partner,” said Jeff Felice, President at CertNexus.  “We’ve developed courses and certifications that offer standardizations in the world of data security and IoT, and the fact that WyzGuys Cybersecurity has expanded their offerings to include our courses further exemplifies the necessity to certify skill sets such as these. We’re excited to join forces and utilize their expansive network of locations to make this possible.”
