Overall Satisfaction with Infosec Skills

Presently, I am the only team member in my organization using Infosec Skills. I've been using it as a learning resource for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as our integrated library system sits on a RHEL7 server.
  • Boot Camps
  • Cyber Range
  • Infosec Insiders
  • Honestly the only negative I've had was the test prep book sent as part of RHCSA Boot Camp. It seemed the author rushed publication to address the release of RHEL8. Unfortunately he left containers out completely. I think this has been sorted in a later edition.
  • I became much more at-ease in the RHEL environment after using Infosec Skills resources.
  • Repetitive exercises in Cyber Range was an advantage in command retention.
None had Cyber Range (that I have seen anyway), which is somewhat surprising in light of how fundamentally helpful it is. I didn't see any 5-day immersive boot camps in them either.
Not particularly. Or at least, not yet. My role does not include cybersecurity per se; other than password enforcement
My primary interaction the in RHEL environment is via APIs. But progressing through RHCSA cyber range topics helped me understand the environment in which I'm working to a greater extent than before. We are a SaaS client, so we don't have complete access to the server, but that doesn't mean won't ever have complete access. Or move to another Linux-based platform that we'd have to manage ourselves.
I really enjoyed the interactive elements, and the presenter for my RHCSA Boot Camp was an outstanding instructor.
The Cyber Range feature [with Infosec Skills] is excellent for hands-on training. It's an enjoyable environment for interactively learning a wide range of skills.
