MSSP Alert Releases its List of Top 10 Security Awareness Training Companies for 2019

Global Learning Systems was listed among the top 10 security awareness training companies for 2019. The list was compiled from research conducted by MSSP Alert along with inclusion in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Awareness Computer-Based Training.

According to author Joe Panettieri, “Demand for computer-based security awareness training software tools continues to grow rapidly. Spending on such services grew about 40 percent to $490 million in 2018, Gartner estimates.”

Computer-based security awareness training tools typically span education, communication, and behavior management activities and learning outcomes, Gartner notes. The training, the researcher says, is typically designed to help employees:

  • Comply with regulations, procedures and policies
  • Support disciplinary actions
  • Increase employees’ knowledge and competency concerning threats, risks and security options
  • Change and maintain employees’ security behavior and building a more security-aware culture
