"I commend InfoSec Institute on the out-of-the-box thinking that goes into creating a training program to teach something that is so misunderstood. The instructor's knowledge of the information was exceptional. He presented the topics in a way that was accessible to even the most laymen of user. There was an incredible amount of information, but Keatron maintained focus and we were able to absorb a great deal of it through labs and exercises. The most rewarding of the exercises were the CTFs, pitting one side of the class against the other. I would definitely take another course"
