Why Choose Kano for Cybersecurity Training?

Kano emerged to address a trend that cybersecurity leaders saw in entry-level cyber analysts: their resumes looked great, they knew the right things to say, but–when put to the task–they lacked the experience and confidence to assess security events with proficiency and accuracy.

There’s a gap in the cybersecurity training new analysts receive, and the practical experience that comes with real-to-life training and repetitions. To fill that gap, Kano Cyber Institute has developed a specific methodology and proprietary incident simulator that helps trainees develop the needed experience–with the goal of making new hires more attractive to employers and more productive once on the job.

The KANO Method

To train you to work, Kano first trains you how to think. When you have a systematic process to follow, your analysis becomes consistent and your conclusions become confident. The Kano Method teaches you a methodology that you can plug-and-play into any job, regardless of the tools the company provides. You’ll also learn the tools and when to use them, so you can recognize which tool is right for the job without a lot of trial and error.

The “secret” behind the Kano Method is contextualization. Learn how to think through security events and consistently investigate, assess, and respond to them. Once you learn the method, you practice it over and over through our proprietary incident simulator until the process becomes second nature.

The Incident Simulator

Many cybersecurity training programs provide labs or ranges, where you can learn about tools used in the industry and view examples of what an attack might look like. However, in order to be able to work an event and come up with a resolution, you have “to do” the work of responding to attacks of all kinds–over and over and over again. That’s why Kano created the incident simulator.

Kano’s simple-to-use simulator gives you practice putting your knowledge to work on real-to-life incidents and responds to your actions as if you were on the job. You will work through more than 100 attacks over the course of the program, as the data-driven simulator provides you real-time feedback on your decisions so that you can make adjustments and get the experience you need to be competitive in the workplace. Because this simulator is mobile-friendly, you can access it anywhere from a mobile device, giving you more opportunities to hone your skills while you’re waiting in line, traveling, or between appointments.

Kano's Cybersecurity Mission

Kano’s Mission

Born out of the experience of Lance Leger, a subject matter expert in detection engineering and an experienced cyber analyst, Kano bridges the gap between the continually growing need for proficient cybersecurity professionals and the lack of practical experience demonstrated by many entry-level cyber analysts.

Across roles with multiple companies and organizations, Leger observed a common difficulty where newly-minted cyber analysts with all the cybersecurity training and course certifications did not possess the experience and practical skills needed to thrive on the job. These experiences inspired Leger to found Kano Cyber Institute.

The mission of Kano is to transform the cybersecurity landscape by elevating the quality of training programs available. By bridging the gap between knowledge and practical application of cyber analysis, Kano empowers the current and next generation of cyber analysts to do cyber defense more effectively.

Meet the Instructors

Lance Leger, Lead Instructor

Lance Leger’s parents might tell you that their son’s cybersecurity journey began as early as 4th grade, when he got a little too curious about his elementary school’s secure information. (You’ll have to join the course to hear the full story). More officially, Leger joined the cybersecurity industry in 2001 as a network engineer, when he helped build the networks he would later defend.

By 2009, Leger started working in defensive cyber operations, developing innovative data analytics and threat detection solutions for key U.S. government agencies like the Department of Homeland Security and Army Cyber Command. Most recently, he has been providing cybersecurity consulting for numerous Fortune 500 companies, enhancing their use of Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tools.

Leger’s experiences give him insight into the practical skills needed by cyber analysts, as well as the difficulties companies have in finding competent cybersecurity professionals. He is passionate about mentoring and training the next generation of cyber analysts to leave a legacy of excellence in cybersecurity.

Christian Klint

Christian Klint, Lead Instructor – Europe

Growing up in a family of IT professionals, Klint’s interest in technology started early. After finishing the equivalent of high school in Denmark, he started working as a platform developer for Fortune 500 companies. A few years later, he started working in cybersecurity as a security analyst, after earning a degree in history from the University of Copenhagen.

Klint honed his cybersecurity skills through various certification programs, on-the-job experience, and mentorship. Today, he manages a security team of 25 people in one of the largest engineering companies in the world, where he is head of security architecture.

Klint is a great example of the values that Kano embraces. Even for a student of history–a topic far removed from technical knowledge–cybersecurity can become a fruitful career. Klint wants to provide the same opportunities he had to other professionals and help them get good positions at great companies–no matter their background.
