SECO-Institute and Global Knowledge are expanding the existing partnership

Global Knowledge is expanding her Cyber Security Portfolio with more courses and certifications of The Security and Continuity Institute (SECO-Institute). This announcement is made today by Global Knowledge and SECO-Institute.

Global Knowledge U.S.A. is already offering the full portfolio of SECO-Institute since 2018. Due to a rapidly increasing demand for certifications of the SECO-Institute in the Netherlands, Global Knowledge the Netherlands decided to expand the existing partnership with SECO-Institute by offering the full portfolio of Cyber Security and Continuity courses and certifications in the Netherlands.

‘We are very proud of our partnership with Global Knowledge. It shows very clearly that the SECO-Institute portfolio is being recognised as a serious alternative for the American certifications’, says  Vincent Jentjens, Chairman of SECO-Institute.


SECO-Institute differentiates itself on the Cyber Security Market because of the unique role-based certification focus. This means that the SECO-Institute certification process is developed to train up to a specific position or role within an organisation. SECO-Institute certified professionals are able to put the aquired knowledge into practice straight away. ‘In  this market, there are a lot of providers offering a quick way to get certified but that will give you the theoretical knowledge but not the required skills to put the knowledge into practice’ explains Vincent Jentjens in a recent interview with Global Knowledge. ‘With our focus onoffering both the required knowledge and skills in our courseware, SECO-Institute distinguishes her self as a leading European organistion on a predominantly American Cyber Security market.

Global Knowledge the Netherlands will be offering 6 tracks of the SECO-Institute portfolio. Each track will educate the professional for a specific job or position. The emphasis on educating professionals for a specific job or position, is a distinguishing factor of the SECO-Institute, according to Global Knowledge Business Development Manager Dick Goettsch. ‘During the training developed by SECO-Institute, the student learns how to put the theory into practice. With the aquired knowledge and skills, the student is very well prepared for his current or aspired job or role.’
