About InfoSec Institute
InfoSec Institute was founded in 1998 by a group information security instructors that desired to build a business by offering the best possible training experience for students. We felt that by providing the best possible hands on training --- that is most practical for today's demanding workplace requirements, the business would grow by leaps and bounds. This original assumption proved true. InfoSec Institute has trained over 15,000 individuals on everything from industry standard certifications as the CISSP to highly technical customized Windows Kernel Reverse Engineering courses. Unlike other training companies that have been founded by non-technical business persons, InfoSec Institute deeply understands the needs of today's IT professionals and is best positioned to offer world class training. Our wide range of security specific classes help a diverse group of customers get the training they deserve.
