About Mile2

Emerging in the wake of the 9/11 tragedy, Mile2 has pioneered the development and dissemination of exclusive vendor-neutral cybersecurity certification programs. Through their Mile2 Assessment and Certification System (MACS), they conduct rigorous examinations. These certifications delve into both fundamental and advanced cyber security principles, charting a progressive course for workforce development. Participants are guided through a comprehensive curriculum, culminating in advanced hands-on training in pivotal disciplines like penetration testing, disaster recovery, incident handling, and network forensics. Notably, Mile2 holds global accreditation, adhering to the most stringent standards, underscoring their commitment to excellence and credibility on a worldwide scale.


The name “Mile2” draws inspiration from an ancient Roman practice where soldiers possessed the authority to compel citizens to carry their burdens for precisely one mile. This custom, rooted in the Roman Empire’s reign, represented a form of forced labor, with citizens obligated to comply without question.


However, the teachings of Jesus in the biblical book of Matthew introduced a transformative perspective. In urging his disciples to willingly extend their efforts beyond the mandated mile, Jesus advocated for a spirit of generosity and exceeding expectations. This principle has endured through the ages, evolving into the modern adage “go the extra mile.”


In the context of Mile2, this name symbolizes a commitment to surpassing conventional limits and delivering exceptional service, echoing the ethos of dedication and excellence exemplified by cybersecurity professionals striving to safeguard digital assets.

Mile2 boasts a vast network of over 200 training partners worldwide, comprising a diverse array of private training companies, academies, universities, colleges, and governmental entities.

Mile2 holds numerous prestigious accreditations, including recognition from the NSA’s CNSS 4011-4016, the Homeland Security NICCS’s Security Workforce Framework, and approval from the FBI for Cyber Security training requirements. Additionally, Mile2 has earned the endorsement of California’s Cal OES, POST, and CSTI. Moreover, Mile2 aligns with the NICE NIST/Homeland Security NICCS Cyber Security Workforce Framework and is listed as an approved provider for FBI Cyber Security Certification Requirements (Tier 1-3). Notably, several of Mile2’s certification programs have recently attained accreditation from ANAB ISO 17024, further solidifying their commitment to excellence and industry standards.
