FRSecure CISSP Mentor Program
What is FRSecure's CISSP Mentor Program?
Our way of helping to fill the shortage of security experts
FRSecure has a goal of changing a broken industry. There are many ways to accomplish this objective, such as setting high assessment standards, using proprietary reporting methods that are easy to understand, and hiring expert talent, just to name a few.
One unique approach we use at FRSecure to bring about change is our Certified Information Systems Security (CISSP) Mentor Program. The global dilemma around cybersecurity talent has been a feature of the security and risk management landscape for many years, and research forecasts prior to the Coronavirus pandemic showed that there would be 3.5 million open cybersecurity positions by 2021.
By design, this program is provided at no cost to any participants as a way to help fill those open positions with good, qualified people—by preparing them for the CISSP certification exam.
