GlobalKnowledge was founded in 2003. Since then, we have been a leading and pioneering training center in Asia. Due to the situation with Covid-19, we have expanded and made chosen GK courses available online.
The main reason for establishing this online training center was to open possibilities that are accessible to everyone. GK is a leading online Cybersecurity school, offering not only the most affordable 2 year programs, but also the one with the most minimal requirements. Our goal is to provide access to a highly esteemed Cybersecurity education to the widest range of IT security enthusiasts from many countries.

We cut all the unnecessary costs to achieve that. We don't participate in rankings and don't buy costly accreditations. Our students' results speak for themselves. We don't have a campus, and our Cybersecurity course is 100% online.
But what is more important, we improve our students’ lives, and that is our most esteemed achievement.
