Kaplan, Graham Holdings launches CyberVista cybersecurity education outfit

The companies best known for SAT test prep are aiming to teach business execs about cybersecurity best practices.

The companies behind Kaplan, which is best known for prepping students for SAT exams, are launching CyberVista, an effort to bolster the cybersecurity workforce.


Graham Holdings Company and Kaplan launched CyberVista at CES 2016's CyberSecurity Forum. The general idea is that CyberVista will tack cybersecurity experts to train business leaders and security execs to better handle attacks.

CyberVista could find a receptive market, but it remains to be seen how its training will be seen in the business world. CyberVista will leverage Kaplan's expertise in personalized learning, assessment and online education.

The initial offering from CyberVista will target board members and executives and outline business risk, tools and managing cybersecurity. The program can be delivered in-person, online and via recorded sessions.

Ultimately, CyberVista said it plans to launch a cybersecurity certification preparation program as well as continuing ed.
