Higher team engagement & performance with customized cyber training for large North American telecommunications company.


Listen to the Customer interview.


A large telecommunications company was looking to train and retain top cyber talent.

As part of this effort, they launched a large-scale corporate reskilling program to upskill new hires and junior talent. These employees would eventually fill open positions aligned to three distinct job roles: Application Security Tester, Network Security Integrator, and SOC Specialist.


N2K rolled out a 6-month, two-phase program that assessed the population to get a knowledge baseline and then filled knowledge gaps with training informed by the assessment results. 

The first phase consisted of a 34-question skills assessment tailored to the NICE framework. The data from the assessment was presented to management and helped them get more visibility into their teams’ existing skills and knowledge. 

Phase two consisted of three learning pathways that filled knowledge gaps identified by the assessment and provided the additional necessary skills to help the junior talent become job-ready. The pathways featured certification and role-based training, mixing in live online and on-demand content.
