Cybersecurity education company Infosec has announced its integration with the recently launched Microsoft Viva Learning platform, aimed at bringing cybersecurity training to Microsoft’s millions of learners worldwide.

Infsec says studies have shown investing in training increases employee engagement and retention, but lack of time, scheduling conflicts and distance constraints often deter learners from taking advantage of professional development resources - and to help overcome these challenges and foster a culture of learning, Microsoft Viva has integrated learning content from 15 partners into Microsoft Teams, providing seamless, personalized training experiences for employees.

Under the integration, Infosec says that using Teams, cybersecurity professionals can now learn in-demand skills like pentesting, incident response, industrial control system security, security leadership and more with direct access to 1,200+ Infosec Skills hands-on labs, courses and projects.

The integration includes the newly released Infosec Skills cyber range, where cyber professionals can learn to defend against MITRE ATT&CK® Framework tactics and techniques, perform penetration tests and write secure code hands-on - while labs inside the cyber ranges guide learners through realistic scenarios inside the operating environments they’d encounter on the job - with clear learning objectives and actionable lessons.

“Employees play a critical role in applying cybersecurity knowledge and skills to protect organizations from cyberthreats. Our seamless integration with Microsoft Viva Learning equips employees with access to Infosec’s award-winning training library,” said Jack Koziol, CEO and founder of Infosec.

“This new integration brings experiential, role-based training resources into existing Microsoft workflows to make upskilling and reskilling easier than ever before." 

“We are pleased to partner with Infosec by bringing their diverse learning content library into the flow of work with Microsoft Viva Learning. Infosec’s focus on cybersecurity education represents an important learning category, made even more critical with the shift to hybrid work,” said Seth Patton, general manager of Microsoft 365 Next Gen Productivity and Employee Experience.

“With Viva Learning, we’re making this content easily accessible and shareable within the apps and tools people already use during their workday, and together we’re empowering people to stay cyber-safe at work and home.”

Infosec’s technical skill development platform, Infosec Skills, includes over 1,200 resources to assess teams and close skills gaps with hands-on cyber ranges, projects and courses mapped to the NICE Workforce Framework for Cybersecurity and the MITRE ATT&CK® Framework.
