Our Security+ Boot Camp is Updated with Latest 2008 Security+ Exam Objectives:

The 2008 Edition of the CompTIA Security+ exam places greater emphasis on knowing how to address specific security issues, rather than simply being able to recognize these issues. The new exam covers six major objectives, or topics:  Systems Security, Network Infrastructure, Access Control, Assessments and Audits, Cryptography, and Organizational Security. A 2008 CompTIA survey of more than 2,000 individuals with responsibilities for information security found that more organizations are requiring security certifications, such as CompTIA Security+, for their IT staff because certified staff is better able to identify potential security risks proactively, and to respond more quickly when security breaches do occur. 

Intense School is proud to be a member of the Security+ Cornerstone Committee responsible for developing the Security+ Certification.

The instructor had an excellent demeanor and candor, very knowledgable about IT industry in general and many different fields in specific.

- Jose Rengel

My instructor is a freaking genius, however he really enjoys bringing the info and material to life so in a way you do catch a bit of genius by the end of the course.

- Samuel Angura
World Bank

Incredible instructor. The coursework covered 300 topics in 10 domains, and he was able to speak intelligently on all of them. Better, his teaching style was relaxed and informal, which lessened the feelings of impending doom about the exam we were about to undertake. He knew exactly which sections of the material to emphasize, when we needed a break, and in many cases was speaking ahead of the slides (he knew exactly what was coming up before turning the slides). Rare gem.

- Thomas Dunn
Georgia Tech Research Institute

A great instructor, very intelligent and well spoken and excellent course materials.

- Jeff Clemmons
Blood Systems

Instructor demonstrated advanced knowledge of the subject matter as well as INFOSEC in general. He provided us with all of the tools and reference materials we needed to perform the DIACAP process. The course materials are great!

- TR Piller

Fantastic instructor! Really knew the material, and was adept at communicating in an understandable manner to those without an IT background. I couldn't ask for a more genuine, concerned instructor who had her students successful learning as the main motivator for everything she did. Simply superb!

- Timothy Dalhouse
Spectrum Training

One of the most intelligent and well-spoken instructors I have ever had the privilege to work with. His in depth knowledge of the 10 domains in CISSP surpassed my expectations as well as the expectations of my classmates. His teaching style kept the otherwise dry information very memorable and exciting. I would HIGHLY recommend this course to my peers.

- Student
National Institutes of Health

Instructor was to the point, and stayed on topic. Appreciated that he doesn't get led off tangents by students questions.

- Mark Yu

My instructor is a genius. He has the perfect combination of knowledge and humor. I learned so much this week and enjoyed every minute of it!

- Matthew Miller
Waste Connections

Instructor did a fantastic job of delivering a large set of very dense course material cogently to the class. She obviously had the material down cold and could easily break down elements of the different knowledge domains in clear explanations.

- Byron Caswell

The instructor was very knowledgeable about the pen testing and ethical hacking. He was great in delivering the lectures, lab and was very helpful in having us complete the capture the flag exercises. In addition, he provided valuable insight about security in general and pen testing in particular.

- Tijan Drammeh
University of Maryland University College

Instructor was very intelligent and had lots of experience to draw on, outside of the written paterial that made it more interesting. I was very pleased with him.

- Sandra L. Speck
