DDLS partners with CertNexus to offer affordable cyber security training

STRATEGIC ALLIANCE ANNOUNCEMENT: DDLS, Australia’s largest provider of corporate IT and process training, today announced a new partnership with CertNexus, a vendor-neutral certification body providing emerging technology certifications for IT and Security professionals.

The first course that will be offered as part of the new partnership is the CyberSAFE certification. The course enables employees to identify the most common risks involved in using conventional, mobile, and cloud technologies, and to protect themselves and their organisation from cyber threats.

Designed for non-technical end users of computers, mobile devices, and internet networks, the CyberSAFE course enables employees to use technology more securely and minimise digital risks.

With data breaches in Australian organisations steadily rising in recent years, and human error accounting for a large percent of these incidents, the Office of Australian Information Officer (OAIC) is urging organisations to undertake more cybersecurity training. Studies by the Aberdeen Group show that implementing a company-wide cyber awareness training program can reduce incidents by up to 70%.

“As always, DDLS strives to deliver the most in-demand training to the market. Cyber awareness training is now becoming a must-have for organisations, so we thought it made perfect sense to expand our offerings to include an accessible and affordable course on this topic” said Jon Lang, CEO of DDLS.

“We find CertNexus’ certifications are a great option for those organisations who are looking for a company-wide affordable solution, rather than highly technical training for specific employees, and want to create a healthy cybersecurity culture in their organisations”.

Jeff Felice, President of CertNexus said, “We’re thrilled to have DDLS as our newest Authorised Training Partner. DDLS recognised the necessity of offering certification in the cyber security space, so we are excited to join forces and support their ability to deliver this training to the businesses they serve.”

The CyberSAFE course will be offered by DDLS as a self-paced virtual training course depending on the customer’s requirements. The course delivers expertise in four key domains; Understanding security compliance needs and requirements; Recognising and avoiding phishing and other social engineering; Recognising and avoiding viruses, ransomware, and other malware; and Ensuring data security on computers, mobile devices, networks, the Internet, and in the cloud.

Full details on the CertNexus CyberSAFE course can be found here.
