BENGALURU, India, Aug. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- In a groundbreaking collaboration, Otomeyt and the Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to create a transformative impact in the realm of cybersecurity. This partnership marks a significant milestone for both organizations and the broader cybersecurity community.

By joining forces, ISAC is now poised to fulfill its visionary goal of establishing Cybersecurity Centers of Excellence (COEs) not only in Bangalore but also across India, and abroad. The collaboration with Otomeyt, a pioneering company specializing in smart workforce transformation through AI-powered talent acquisition and development, is set to close the gap in last-mile delivery in cybersecurity education and training, fostering an ethical, cyber-secure, and globally competitive workforce.
