(LONDON, July 29, 2020) - ISC2 - the world’s largest nonprofit association of certified cybersecurity professionals – today announced that Global Knowledge has been added as an Official Training Provider for the UK, further expanding the range of leading training organizations offering ISC2 certification preparation training in one of the world’s biggest markets for IT security professionals.
