Performanta Academy was established in 2016 in order to address and cater for an industry shortfall in qualified and experienced information security resources.

For this purpose, Performanta Academy has developed a unique training framework to supply those needs for qualified information security specialists.

Information Security Plus (IS+)

The Academy offers an all-encompassing curriculum (IS+) that provides overview on information security practices; from governance and compliance to operationalizing security technologies. The programme is accompanied by practical experience driven by professionals who have gathered long years of deep understanding and comprehensive knowledge of the information security field. The practical training takes place in our physical labs and our cyber security operations center and provides hands-on experience.


Performanta are in a process of getting the qualification to be nationally recognized by SAQA and MICT SETA and are also in the process of applying for accreditation from the Council of Higher Education.
