November 29, 2021: WillCo Tech, a leading provider of compliance and readiness management software within the U.S. Federal government, is now partnering with EC-Council to offer cybersecurity training courses on their CyberSTAR software platform.
With the recent attacks and increased threats facing government and critical infrastructure businesses, cybersecurity training within the federal government sector has never been more in-demand. Additionally, one of the major issues facing the cybersecurity industry as a whole is understaffing and the lack of qualified individuals to fill open positions and manage cyber workforce readiness.
WillCo Tech is solving the people challenge in cybersecurity. Their CyberSTAR software is a recurring software subscription that:
- Maps people to roles and training requirements
- Automates reporting against mandated regulations for federal agencies and regulated industries
- Harnesses this expertise and compliance data to improve organizational cybersecurity posture
Through their partnership with EC-Council, the growing CyberSTAR user community will now have ready access to EC-Council training courses and certifications – everything from the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification to a master’s degree in cybersecurity. These high-quality courses and certifications can be used to upskill existing skill sets and ultimately, to fill in cybersecurity workforce gaps.
“As threats to our national security continue, we want our federal cybersecurity workforce and government agency leadership to very quickly be able to see where there are skill gaps and opportunities for growth within their organizations and across the government. Offering EC-Council training through CyberSTAR will add immediate value to existing and new users,” says Marling Engle, CEO, WillCo Tech.
Cyber threats are ongoing and forever evolving. Instead of one-off, fix-it-and-forget-it solutions, organizations need to embrace a holistic enterprise approach to cyber readiness, which starts with the human element of cybersecurity. These strategies will allow for better identification, mitigation, and protection against attacks.
