In today’s fast-paced and evolving digital landscape, it should come as no surprise that cybersecurity is ranked as the highest-priority area of investment among IT executives.

We see it ourselves as the consumption of Skillsoft’s cybersecurity content increases every year. As technology advances and becomes more accessible, organizations must be diligent and proactive about strengthening their security practices to protect themselves — and their customers — from new and emerging threats.

At Skillsoft, we are committed to promoting best-in-class cybersecurity practices — not just through our own learning content but throughout our platform and network.

That's why we’re thrilled to share that Skillsoft has achieved the Cyber Essential Plus Audit Certification. Endorsed by the UK government, this certification independently validates the strong measures and protections organizations have in place to secure their digital infrastructure and defend against potential cyber-attacks.

Cyber Essentials Plus is an industry-supported, government-backed certification that encourages the widespread adoption of cybersecurity practices to combat modern cyber threats. To earn the certification, Skillsoft had to pass a rigorous assessment by a certified third-party auditor. The process required a thorough examination of our IT security infrastructure and an in-depth review of our security policies and procedures. Achieving this certification provides assurance to Skillsoft customers and team members that our defenses are effective against a wide range of cyber threats.

Skillsoft’s commitment to cybersecurity and to bolstering the safety and integrity of our digital infrastructure is ongoing. This certification is a demonstration of that commitment, and we are proud of the work we have done to maintain our security posture and uphold a secure environment for our organization and customers.

These efforts include adhering to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, establishing and updating security policies and procedures, undergoing regular vulnerability management processes, implementing secure code and development practices, and building a culture of security awareness among all Skillsoft team members, among other ongoing activity.

We continue to innovate and hold ourselves to the highest standards, as the protection and privacy of Skillsoft clients, learners, and team members is of utmost importance.
