RELIAQUEST UNIVERSITY

Taking your cybersecurity skills to the next level

THE HISTORY

The cybersecurity industry is suffering from a skills shortage. There are plenty of people who want to enter the cybersecurity field, but they need the skills to effectively perform in open positions. We believe that talented people are the secret to building a successful security program. Our continuous learning mindset and desire to share that outside of just ReliaQuest employees led us to establish ReliaQuest University (RQU) in 2018. ReliaQuest University is a mixture of virtual, instructor-led and hands-on training covering both security best practices, the GreyMatter platform, and leadership development. By the end of 2019, RQU consisted of monthly training and development programs using courses from a library of over 75 different sessions.

HANDS-ON TRAINING

Regardless of role, receive immersive training in the professional, procedural, and technical standards that make ReliaQuest a leader in global enterprise cybersecurity. We have a one-of-a-kind cyber simulator that replicates the various tools that Fortune 1000 enterprises are working in every day, testing our employees’ skills against real-life scenarios like phishing and ransomware attacks. Even our non-technical team members can go through our GreyMatter training and become experts in the platform. We are combating the skills shortage through hands-on learning and up-to-date real-life scenarios to reflect the latest cybersecurity ecosystem.

“ReliaQuest University is a comprehensive development program designed to maximize your potential.”

LEARNING FASTER TOGETHER

Security is a team sport and that’s why we believe in partnering with our customers, offering them the same trainings we offer employees, in order to continuously mature their security programs. In 2020, we launched comprehensive GreyMatter training courses, with 24/7/365 access in addition to the on-demand training in the platform itself, accelerating product knowledge for both employees and our customers. We’re committed to ensuring our customer’s success and this helps enhance their security operations while sharing some of our approaches to continuous learning, making us better partners.

DEVELOPING SECURITY LEADERS

ReliaQuest follows a promote from within model, and to develop the next generation of ReliaQuest leaders, we offer a leadership academy for those who are ready to take the next step in their career. These employees will gain new skills and participate in various role-play exercises in order to make a larger impact across the organization—which in turn makes a huge difference for our customers. Talk about a win-win. Employees earn recognition for this achievement and are considered first for advancement opportunities.

MAKING CONTINUOUS LEARNING POSSIBLE

RQU is an automated learning management platform that includes computer-based, instructor-led, and virtual trainings, so you can track your progress over time. It’s not a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Instead, it’s a set of tools that supports the way you learn best and on a schedule that works for you.

CLOSING THE CYBERSECURITY SKILLS GAP, ONE TRAINING AT A TIME

Want to broaden your knowledge of forensics? Deepen your expertise in incident response? Become a GreyMatter expert? RQU is more than on-boarding or a one-time training. In fact, you never have to graduate.

We’re always adding topics and courses to fuel your learning quest and further your cybersecurity career.
