Infosec Institute, a cybersecurity education company, announces it has partnered with the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) to bring market-leading cyber education solutions to colleges and universities within its 12 member states, as well as members of the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE), Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) and Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE).
MHEC is statutorily-created in its member states and dedicated to strengthening postsecondary education through cost-savings initiatives and policy solutions informed by research and the expertise of regional leaders. Through partnerships with solution providers like Infosec, MHEC helps save colleges and universities millions of dollars annually.
“Educational institutions are often lucrative targets for cybercrime because of the massive amounts of personal data they store for faculty, staff and students,” said Jack Koziol, Infosec CEO and founder. “We look forward to empowering midwestern higher education faculty and staff with the knowledge and skills to stay cyber secure at work, school and home with our market-leading security awareness and training platform, Infosec IQ.”
The new partnership brings more than 2,000 Infosec IQ security awareness and training resources to 47 states.
