Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet is an organisation that offers training solutions for management and staff across South East Ireland. The organisation was established in January 1999 by a group of Senior Managers from various organisations across the region who noticed that they shared common training problems. Through their collaboration, these organisations have developed locally based, low cost and customised training solutions for businesses across the Carlow Kilkenny region. Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet forms part of Skillnet Ireland, a business support agency of the Irish Government that promotes business training and workforce learning across Ireland.
Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet needed to find a reputable company to provide its clients with cybersecurity training (CPD). In particular, the organisation required a company that could work with regional credit unions and carry out a one to one session with a large local credit union. The organisation was eager to find a reliable training provider that had technical expertise and extensive cybersecurity knowledge. Moreover, Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet sought a training provider that could break down and communicate complex cybersecurity concepts to employees with little knowledge of the area.
Carlow Kilkenny Skillnet engaged Stryve to provide its clients with cybersecurity training. We delivered training sessions, seminars and presentations to the wider business community, as well as to several credit unions, across the South East. Stryve also designed and delivered tailor-made training solutions to individual credit unions and their teams. We provided a range of security demonstrations and shared tips on ways to improve cybersecurity within each organisation. The training that Stryve provided not only educated employees and improved their cybersecurity awareness, it also enabled credit unions to gain CPD points. Moreover, credit unions were granted the opportunity to have their cybersecurity policies vetted by Stryve, a third-party ISO security certified company.
