In support of Texas House Bill (HB) 3834, the Texas Department of Information Resources has certified three Optiv cybersecurity training programs for state and government employees.

No matter how advanced your security technology, every organization has risks 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. In addition, employee engagement and retention increase when end users find educational content relatable, meaningful and aligned with their organization’s culture.

State, local and educational organizations can choose from various programs to help employees be more secure in their daily routines and, as a result, protect sensitive data. Each program helps employees develop positive behavior changes through engaging and meaningful coursework. Plus, this program can be hosted on an organization’s internal SCORM-compliant learning management system (LMS) or Optiv’s LMS.
