CYBINT NEWS / NEW YORK / MAY 8TH, 2019 – Legal industry media, events and education leader, High Performance Counsel and global cyber education leader Cybint Solutions are taking steps to help legal advisers and consultancies support the growing need for cybersecurity certification.
The HPC/NY Cyber Offering is a turnkey curriculum available to legal advisers and consultancies seeking to support clients in their cyber education and staff training requirements. The HPC/NY Cyber Offering provides a comprehensive suite of multi-level cyber education and professional development offerings. Classes range from cyber literacy for non-technical professionals to advanced, hands-on Simu-Labs and cyber range environment for those pursuing a cybersecurity career.
David Kinnear, Founder & CEO of High Performance Counsel commented: “Cybersecurity is both one of the greatest risks – and greatest opportunities – facing the legal sector and the clients it serves. Cybersecurity literacy is a must-have technical competency for legal professionals in today’s legal world. Clients live and breathe data – so they expect their advisers to understand the issues and, increasingly, offer proactive solutions for managing risk. With the Cyber Offering, we’ve taken a big step toward making this easier and more accessible for legal advisers, consultancies and clients alike.”
“With High Performance Counsel, we have found a partner who shares our commitment to closing the cyber security skills gap,” said Bryan Dickens, Former FBI Profiler and Cybint’s SVP. “Within the legal landscape, especially, there’s a growing need for cyber expertise and with HPC, I believe we can set law professionals up for success.”
