Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, September 12, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Sophisticated security software, regular security assessments and stringent security policies alone cannot ensure good information security standards in an organisation. It requires the personnel to be well trained, updated and knowledgeable about information security aspects. Professional trainings and certifications play a significant part in the continuous development of IT professionals.
AKATI Consulting has a proven track record in training hundreds of information security professionals and students worldwide. Krishna Rajagopal, CEO of AKATI Consulting believes that information security is a journey and should involve efforts of all members of the digital society.
"Efforts to secure information assets can only be realised with constant enhancement of security skills by IT Professionals. AKATI Consulting who has already built a reputation in providing security consulting services par excellence now goes beyond, as we have established our own AKATI Academy which provides highly sought after Information Assurance and Cyber Security training courses as well. Now through this strategic alliance with (ISC)² we are able to provide some of the world-class Information Security training courses such as CISSP certification which is at the top of the list for all information security professionals. We have come together through this alliance for the benefit of IT professionals in Malaysia and this region. Through building strategic alliances with quality information security education providers such as (ISC)², I believe we are greatly contributing to the improvement of Malaysian Information Security capacity building," Krishna commented.
(ISC)² in its mission of supporting and providing members and constituents with credentials, resources, and leadership to secure information and deliver value to society, has recognised AKATI Consulting as a worthy partner to join this endeavour.
The strategic alliance between (ISC)² and AKATI Consulting would improve the geographical coverage of the (ISC)² training services and would be a great opportunity for IT professionals in Malaysia. (ISC)² certifications are recognised globally, serve as an accepted standard in the industry and offer confidence to professionals in private and government sectors.
