Tesserent Academy secures ISACA training accreditation

Thales Australia company Tesserent has revealed that its Tesserent Academy and ALC Training subsidiaries have become the first ISACA elite plus partners in the Asia–Pacific region to be classed as accredited training organisations by ISACA, the international professional association for IT governance.

The accreditation certifies that Tesserent Academy and ALC Training’s products and services have been independently assessed to ensure consistent, high-quality outcomes for people seeking to pursue or advance their careers in cybersecurity.

ALC Training has been accredited to confer ISACA credentials including Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC), Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT), and Certified Data Privacy Solutions Engineer (CDPSE).

“We are delighted that ISACA has accredited the courses and qualifications offered by Tesserent Academy and ALC Training in the Australian market,” said Tesserent CEO Kurt Hansen. “We are committed to upskilling the talent pipeline the industry desperately needs. This will help fulfil the growing demand for cybersecurity workers. This will ensure our nation’s defences are strengthened and robust as we meet the federal government’s goal to make our nation the most cybersecure by 2030.”

Tesserent also offers full-service cybersecurity and cloud solutions aimed at helping organisations defend their digital assets against cyber attacks and other risks. The company employs over 550 cybersecurity experts across Australia.

The company launched its Tesserent Academy in April 2021 to address the ongoing cybersecurity skills shortages gripping Australia and New Zealand, with Tesserent Academy subsequently acquiring ALC Training in 2023.
