Attract, Train, and Retain Your Employees with NU Workforce Partnership Benefits

Businesses of varying sizes in all industries need information security analysts to protect corporate data, as well as their customers’ personal information, in order to stay profitable — and trustworthy. Cybersecurity analysts build strong digital defenses to keep company and customer data safe, monitor potential threats, perform routine security checks, develop software to identify and destroy malicious viruses, and advise companies on best practices to keep data safe.

Since organizations are constantly changing, it is necessary to challenge employees to develop new skills in order to adapt to the evolving workforce. Providing access to the necessary training and education is beneficial to both your staff and your business.
