Overall Satisfaction with Infosec Skills

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.


  • They take the time to go over the material and not just rush through it to make the time
  • The instructor was extremely helpful in answering any and all questions
  • Material was relevant and updated


  • Questions! The Database/site was updated, and I was no longer able to access the questions and choose specific topics to study from
  • There were two CISSP courses to watch videos, I would remove the oldest
  • Put an emphasis that users have a years membership after completing a boot camp

Do you think Infosec Skills delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Infosec Skills's feature set?


Did Infosec Skills live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Infosec Skills go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Infosec Skills again?


  • Earned a great certificate/respect
  • Enlightened me on areas that I am not too familiar with
  • Has positively made me consider more of a management type of role than a technician/analyst
Since I have completed CISSP bootcamp and the certification exam I have taken a small break from learning anything. I am currently focusing efforts on regaining some technical skills on sites such as TryHackMe and HackTheBox. While Infosec is rich in training material it does not have places to test someones skills as some other sites do.
Learning information is one thing, but if an analyst or a technician cannot correlate that information to some type of action, then it loses its value. Hands-on cyber ranges are HUGE and have been incorporating more learning and training paths for a fair rate. While they might not be able to prep students to take exams, it will reinforce many key concepts that they can immediately apply to their current job.
I gave it a 9 because of the issue I had where I could not customize my questions. I was able to resolve this only by logging in with a new email. At that point in time, it was pointless, and I kept completing random questions to prepare for the exam.
The boot camp was planned accordingly, and had the right amount of time to go over and review the material. I would recommend breaking up the class over a weekend. For CISSP, the amount of information to ingest is a lot and can be overwhelming. I felt at day 5, I just needed not so much of a break but time to go back and review what I just learned.
