Evolving Threat Landscape Calls for More Affordable Training

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Secure Ideas, a nationally recognized industry leader in information security consulting and training, is pleased to announce that there is finally #affordabletraining to address the skills gap that exists between organizations and the growing threat landscape.  The training provided by Secure Ideas is applicable to organizations across all industries and is available via live instruction and recorded sessions in an online learning management system.  Threats to critical technology are nothing new, however Secure Ideas has noted time and time again that the most glaring inefficiencies in client technology can be tied back to a lack of education.

"We often find exploitable flaws during penetration testing that are directly tied to a developer's lack of knowledge of secure coding," says Secure Ideas CEO Kevin Johnson. "The bright side?  These errors are easily correctable.  Fundamental techniques for secure development address a large portion of the flaws we uncover, but we hear time and time again that it's far too expensive for an organization to effectively train its staff.  We think it's time to fix that."

Secure Ideas ideas isn't just passionate about security education, it's passionate about making it both affordable and accessible.  In addition to providing intensive live training, Secure Ideas offers a variety of free and inexpensive webcasts and recordings.

"We've always been passionate about education and advancing the fight against criminal actors," says Johnson, author of various SANS Institute courses and a former SANS instructor.  "We believe it is absolutely critical for people and organizations to be trained on security, but it needs to be done in a way that's affordable.  We simply believe that the esablished training organizations in the industry are charging too much money."

The affordable training offered by Secure Ideas is suitable for any size organization across all industries and is the product of a team of experts with decades of combined experience in technology and information security.  Johnson estimates he and his team have spent tens of thousands of hours providing instruction and training to some of the best and brightest technology minds around the globe.  Whether a student is a developer, systems admin, or a security professional, the affordable training offered by Secure Ideas provides essential knowledge on security issues, testing, and defense that are applicable on the very first day back at work.
