Feb. 15, 2017

SC Award WinnerGlobal Learning Systems (GLS) — an online custom elearning, security and compliance training company — won SC Magazine’s 2017 professional award as Best IT Security-Related Training Program. What made GLS stand out among its competitors was the “quality and diversity” of its programs, along with its “focus on overall client satisfaction” and “measuring success using its products and services,” according to the magazine. The award was presented during the 21st annual SC Awards Gala on Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2017, produced by SC Media.

GLS President Larry Cates said: “We are honored to receive this award from an esteemed publication like SC Magazine. We are pleased that the industry is recognizing the value of the GLS Human Firewall program to raise user awareness of today’s cyber security threats and create a positive behavior change environment for our customers.”

Last year GLS was also one of five finalists in the same award category. The individuals, programs and teams selected as winners in the Professional Award categories are run through a rigorous judging process that includes testimonials, industry assessments and additional research. Winners in the Professional Award categories were hand-picked by a panel of judges for their outstanding service, qualifications and advancements to the cybersecurity industry.

GLS prides itself on its ability to provide not only a flexible consultative approach for its clients, but also as SC Magazine notes, “a comprehensive suite of 40 targeted end-user courses and modules designed to educate and drive positive behavior change within an organization.” The company’s Security Awareness Training (SAT) program includes specialized courses geared to the requirements of each client’s needs, whether it be to educate and train users, test and assess progress, provide ongoing instruction and best practices, or offer more advanced programs to targeted groups.
Professionals can choose from a full spectrum of tools to protect information, including email and internet safety, mobile security, identify theft, physical security and phishing/social engineering. GLS’ Anti-Phishing Essentials Training and role-based courses are particularly in demand.

The SC Awards are recognized throughout the cybersecurity industry and are the crowning achievement for IT security professionals and products. Each year, hundreds of applications are reviewed and narrowed down to a select group of finalists that represent the best solutions, services and professionals working around the clock to protect today’s businesses from an ever-changing landscape of security threats.
