IMERZI AND CATI - THE BACKSTORY
Within our CO division, we have a cadre of experts in curriculum design, data analytics, user experience, learning management systems, and academic and commercial implementation strategy. Recognizing a need, this small group shifted their focus and began to work on solving the moving target: the continual need for updated cyber workforce training and a way to determine an individual's natural fit for a role in cybersecurity.
Coupling decades of experience in training and assessing highly skilled cyber teams with our resources and passion for advancements in the area of cybersecurity, our goal is to shift the paradigm around best practices for identifying, recruiting, educating, and training cyber professionals.
The team launched the Cyber Aptitude Typology Indicator (CATI) assessment and course in October 2020, and we are charging full steam ahead to complete the Imerzi LMS. Stay tuned for a soft launch early in 2021.
[2020 showed] an estimated global cybersecurity staffing shortage of three million people, and that has now grown to over four million. Put another way, the global IT security workforce needs to grow by almost 150%.
