SANS Launches Advanced Cybersecurity Learning Platform

Bethesda, Md. – SANS Institute, the most trusted name in information security training and leading provider of cybersecurity awareness trainings solutions, today announced the launch of the Advanced Cybersecurity Learning Platform (ACLP). The ACLP provides a comprehensive and easy to use training platform for security awareness professionals. The ACLP enables security awareness professionals to deliver the right training to the right people at the right time.

The ACLP includes expert cybersecurity content focused on key learning areas needed to change behavior such as passwords, mobile device security, phishing, and social engineering.

Lance Spitzner, Director of SANS Security Awareness Training noted that, "The job of a security awareness officer is very challenging. In addition to getting thousands of people to do something many would rather not do, they must make sure the training system works perfectly and doesn't waste the employees' time. Ultimately, the ACLP makes maintaining a security awareness program easier and far more effective. The ACLP greatly simplifies these tasks by providing a single place to deploy training, generate reports and manage compliance activities."

ACLP offers prebuilt templates that were designed to allow any organization to quickly and easily get the right role based training into the hands of learners. The platform can be easily customized as needed by an awareness professional. Because the training content is written by highly seasoned InfoSec professionals, content can be trusted. The ACLP delivers a powerful, yet simple and effective awareness program for organizations of any size.
