Code42 Partners with Cybrary to Educate Security Practitioners about Insider Risks to Data

Offers extensive new coursework on insider threats in the Cybrary On Demand Cybersecurity Catalog

Minneapolis — Jul 13, 2020 

Code42, the leader in insider risk detection and response, announced today that it has partnered with Cybrary to invest in educating security practitioners on insider threats, which accounts for about two-thirds of breaches to data. The company recently expanded the coursework it offers – with a new multi-part video series – in the cybersecurity catalog on Cybrary. Cybrary is a cybersecurity and IT career development platform offering world-class training and career development materials for more than two million users.

"In a recent poll by Microsoft, 41% of respondents said that data leakage is the biggest insider risk to their organizations. With today's market forces – immense pressure to deliver innovative products, increased use of collaboration technologies, and unprecedented job turnover – it's no surprise that insider threats to product plans, customer lists and source code are an increasing area of focus for cybersecurity teams," said Eric Wansong, Code42's chief customer officer. "We are committed to educating cybersecurity practitioners about the most effective ways to build insider threat programs and protect their organizations' most important digital assets."

Code42's newest course entitled, "8 Steps to Building an Insider Threat Program," offers advanced, prescriptive best practices for security practitioners who are launching insider threat programs at their organizations. The new course includes an extensive series of 10 in-depth videos. It builds upon Code42's introductory program, "Building a Modern Insider Threat Program," which teaches about frameworks for constructing effective enterprise insider threat programs.

"One of the greatest challenges businesses face today is protecting their organizations from modern, complex security threats," said Ryan Corey, CEO and co-founder of Cybrary. "That's why it's imperative that security teams have access to timely, quality content, tools, and educational resources from top subject matter experts and leading cybersecurity organizations. At Cybrary, we leverage our alliance partnerships with companies like Code42 to provide learning opportunities that develop cybersecurity skills and help practitioners achieve their career goals."

Code42's insider risk solution has received a number of industry awards in 2020, including a gold Stevie Award, CyberDefense Magazine InfoSec Award for Best Insider Threat Detection and a Cybersecurity Excellence Gold Award for Best Insider Threat Solution.
