20,000 Strong for AttackIQ Academy. And It’s Just the Beginning.

We started AttackIQ Academy a year and a half ago with a mission to equip the cybersecurity community with free, in-depth education on how to build and operate threat-informed defenses against cyberattacks.

It was designed to serve every level—from seasoned cybersecurity professionals to those new in the field—to accomplish the mission.

I’m honored to see the community’s reception and mutual commitment as we’ve now crossed a milestone of over 20,000 registered Academy students in more than 180 countries.

Here are a just a few of the many  highlights of AttackIQ Academy since we launched in April 2020:  

  • 25+ full courses and videos on everything from Foundations of MITRE ATT&CK to Purple Teaming to FIN6 Emulation plans, breach and attack simulation, and more
  • 14,000+ badges awarded for successful course completion
  • 180 countries with students enrolled in Academy
  • 78 average Net Promoter Score (NPS) for our program and courses
  • 110+ testimonials from students around the world on the quality of our content and instruction

Over the next few months, you can expect to see a variety of great new courses, including classes on ATT&CK Workbench, a CISO course featuring Dr. Arthur Langer from Columbia University and Rob Duncan, a practicing CISO, an AWS Cloud Stack Mapping course, and a Foundational Blueprints class featuring the hosts of the Hacker Valley Studios podcast that will help you roll out the next evolution in your cybersecurity program.

Our exciting new Academy course roadmap is powered by our continued active investment in MITRE ATT&CK R&D as a founding research partner in the Center for Threat-informed Defense (CTID) and our Purple Teaming practice that we have been delivering to corporations around the world.

Virtual Academy classes have been fantastic, however, we can’t wait to get back to in-classroom instruction. To that end, we’re excited to announce the brand-new Academy Live program.

Pandemic-permitting, we’ll be coming to you around the United States and EMEA beginning this fall. In these in-person classes featuring expert instructors, special industry guests, and fellow cybersecurity pros sharing their unique insights, you’ll connect with fellow cybersecurity peers and participate in a number of hands-on exercises to sharpen your warrior’s edge as you defend against adversarial behavior. Watch for more information on events coming to cities near you including in Atlanta, Dallas, NYC, Washington DC, Chicago, San Francisco, London, and more. Trust me—you won’t want to miss this experience.

For those of you who are already Academy students and part of our Informed Defenders Community, I can’t thank you enough for joining us in our fight to make the world safe for compute. For those of you who haven’t yet, I encourage you to join us and try it out.
