Cybersecurity Training Vendor recommendations

Could anyone recommend on-line cybersecurity training vendors that would hopefully be accepted by the SEC and NFA?

Thank you,

  • We use Wombat Technologies and have been pleased. They also assist us with phishing exercises. Very well done.

  • We use Ashland Partners. They are very good.

  • I would recommend Ataata, a relatively new company with very clever and user friendly short training videos. The CEO is Michael Madon, formerly with the FBI and very knowledgeable. You can feel free to use my name.

  • A number of our clients use KnowBe4 ( and have been very pleased. They offer ongoing training, and also ping participants from time to time with fake emails to test their awareness.

  • We use Securing the Human. We tested a few different vendors and this one is pretty user friendly. They have ongoing training employees complete online (listen to a short presentation and then answer some questions) and phishing tests as well.
