I briefly used Infosec Skills in the past, but this time I was scheduled to take a CISSP boot camp. I was skeptical at first because many of the boot camps I have taken before usually water hose you with information that you can read from the book by yourself. I ended up learning a lot more from the instructor about the information and how to prepare and take this certification exam. I have no doubt that the instructor, Steve Wright's guidance, played a huge factor in my understanding of the material and concepts as well as passing the exam.

I currently use Infosec Skills to further my own knowledge, particularly in the areas of information technology governance, security, and risk management, with future plans to expand this training to additional staff, specifically our IT and cybersecurity teams. This will help us build a culture that can supplant resources currently outsourced, to better manage our environment on the ground, in person, without relying on third parties.

The field of information security is constantly evolving as new threats are discovered each day. Our consultants have to keep up with new knowledge and techniques to conduct pentesting, vulnerability remediation, computer forensic audits, and so on. Traditional training in cybersecurity is very expensive, lengthy, and lacks practical experience. When we found Infosec Skills we were impressed with the many themes available in their library, their focus, and also with the price, which is very economic in comparison with other alternatives. Also, their cyber ranges allow our employees to practice the skills needed in a very practical way. We are very happy to count on Infosec [Skills] as an educational ally.

The skills that I acquired during my boot camp session with Infosec [Skills] are ones that I use so frequently [that] it is hard to envision a time prior when I did not use them.

We use the Infosec CSSA (Certified SCADA Security Architect) in our department for our SCADA administrators. This gives us a good base for security measures with our SCADA system and also helps us in interfacing with our IT department for joint ventures.

In the cyber world, it is very important to not only understand new technologies, but to have a grasp on the foundations of the basics. Infosec Skills has helped us greatly with this. My team uses Infosec [Skills] to learn new things as well as help with certifications. I encourage my team to take the security+ courses when starting out. My teammates always express how the lessons they get and what they learn from these courses help them in everyday tasks.

I took these Infosec [Skills] courses to get Cisco certifications, including the CCNA (Route/Switch) and CCNP (Route/Switch & Enterprise). These week+ long courses are very intense and fast-paced but very worth it. Make sure that your schedule is cleared for the duration of the class. Infosec took my working knowledge to a deeper level of understanding that I use every day as a network engineer. I will most certainly be taking more courses in the future.

As a senior penetration tester, I wanted to add to my skillset and looked at the available options, and chose InfoSec Skills to gain a needed certification. Since IACRB uses InfoSec Skills as a primary training platform, the decision was easy to make. I completed the course and took additional resources as well to broaden my knowledge of the area I was concentrating on to finalize and pass the exam. Once I passed the Certified Reverse Engineer Analysis (CREA) exam and obtained my certification I achieved what I wanted. InfoSec Skills was directly responsible for the success I had.

We are an education enterprise. Infosec skills are used as part of our course labs. It addresses theory and training--practice items as well.

Infosec Skills has been a great addition for all our clients and internally as well. It really covers the fundamentals behind emails/phishing and what all your end-users should be aware of. The amount of times that we got calls about suspicious emails beforehand was quite vast and now more of our users feel comfortable with being able to tell if they are legitimate or not. I really like this for government entities (GCC High), as it allows us to cover compliance while also helping reduce the risk of our employees.
