Graham Holdings launches cybersecurity education company
Arlington-based Graham Holdings Co. has launched CyberVista, a cybersecurity education and workforce development company.
CyberVista, was introduced on Wednesday during the CES CyberSecurity Forum at the 2016 CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas.
CyberVista, a Graham subsidiary, is a sister company to the educational services provider Kaplan Inc.
“We see an enormous opportunity in cybersecurity education and workforce development,” Timothy O’Shaughnessy, Graham’s president and CEO, said in a statement. “There is a documented cyber workforce shortage that continues to grow. With the strength of our company coupled with the world-class education expertise gleaned from Kaplan, CyberVista is well-equipped to meet this critical need in the market.”
Graham said CyberVista’s approach to cybersecurity education will draw upon Kaplan’s expertise in personalized learning, assessment, and online delivery. CyberVista’s curricula will be developed by cyber intelligence professionals, the company said.
CyberVista’s initial offering will provide corporate board members and executives with an understanding of cyber issues that affect their organizations and impact overarching business risk, as well as the tools to oversee and manage those cyber risks.
In addition to the board and executive training curriculum announced today, CyberVista plans to introduce a cybersecurity certification preparation program for practitioners and IT professionals, as well as a continuing education program for practitioners already in the field or looking to get into it.
