January 9, 2020 – CertNexus announced that Institute for Cybersecurity was named the 2019 Most Innovative ATP of the Year at the inaugural Partner Meeting and Award Ceremony in Rochester, NY.

Awarded to exemplary CertNexus Authorized Training Partners (ATP), the ceremony was designed to recognize partners with consistent representation of CertNexus products and committed to outstanding performance.

“The Institute for Cybersecurity has shown themselves to be a leader in cybersecurity space,” said Jeff Felice, President of CertNexus, “Their multifaceted approach to cybersecurity education, including teaching our CyberSec First Responder certification, equips their students with the skills they need to make an impact in the IT industry.”

“Integration of the DoD 8570 approved CyberSec First Responder (CFR) into our turn-key Certified Cyber Practitioner (CCP™) workforce development training program enabled us to convert Incident Response (IR) and Blue Team tactic theory into hands-on experience in the cyber-range, giving trainees an advantage in the fast moving world of cybersecurity. The result of our cross disciplinary outcome-based training program(s) is the development of a robust cybersecurity workforce capable of demonstrating their proficiency in cyber defense and we are honored to be recognized as CertNexus’ Most Innovative Training Partner of the Year,” said Stephanie Butts, Executive Director of the Institute for Cybersecurity
