Users will love the game-like experience and organizations can greatly improve retention rates while incorporating the “learn by doing” method for their users.
The virtual range environment exercises are reﬂective of today’s cyberattacks so organizations can better prepare their cyber workforce. These cybersecurity challenges, coupled with a need for remote learning and work-from-home mandates, are touching enterprise, government and higher education customers, and is changing their approach to learning and how they ensure cyber security professionals are positioned for success. In this environment, SecureLink’s expertise and geographical coverage are critical to delivering a superior customer experience through a deep understanding of Circadence’s product and the cybersecurity landscape.
