Cybersecurity Education

Protect your network and your workforce.


Empower people to protect their organization.

No matter how advanced your security technology every organization has risk associated with its workforce. Human risk is difficult to quantify because stakeholders must consider every type of threat, malicious, negligent, and unwitting. Investing in a holistic program to educate and empower everyone who touches your network, inherently reduces the risk by increasing awareness and impacting culture.



Optiv offers a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity education through both general end user awareness and role-based training. Meaningful, relevant, current training content establishes a solid foundation for your general user base and simulated phishing campaigns provide insight and create opportunities for risk mitigation. Increase the ROI on your security technology purchases and strengthen your overall security posture with our instructor-led training courses.

Transform your organization with training.
