SU Security+ 2017

I’ve definitely learned more sitting through the course than from any vender in the past. Very well deliver of the course material. Definitely have gotten a good return on investment for this course. The study material that was provided helped so much to be able to make it easier to follow the course.

Thank you for this opportunity and wonderful experience! I'll continue to work and build on everything I learned this week to further my career. 

Security University has shown me there are no limitations to new beginnings so I'll be taking full advantage of this rediscovered hope! You guys ROCK

I learned a better fundamental understanding of multiple security techniques/policies/and procedures.


SU CISSP Jan 2017

I have a much better understanding of how computer systems are at risk when not properly protected, and how to protect them. 
Thank you for passing on your knowledge! This has been a great learning experience. With any luck, I'll be able to convince my government customer, or company boss to send me back for some more training in the near future.


SU CISSP Dec 2016
"Ken is a great teacher. Very professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. Could not have  had a better teacher to refresh my knowledge". Shekar

Ken is an excellent instructor, he makes the material completely digestible and while I can understand completely understand his narrative, CISSP is a challenge because I have to go back and read things w more calm. I have enjoy myself learning the extensive material though challenging Ken makes things easy to understand and enjoyable.

Nothing more to add to class, there were a lot of training aids and recommendations given to ensure success on the certification. Ken is a great instructor. His real world experience helps relate difficult topics into a better way of understanding. He is very knowledgeable on the topic and I would definitely take another course with him.

A tremendous level of new knowledge.  Ken Cutler is a gifted instructor who describes highly technical terms and concepts in a way every student can understand.  Fundamentally, our cyber security professionals across the GIG are such highly intelligent practitioners.  Making all those billions of packets arrive and sort on time across heterogeneous platforms takes Supra Brain Bytes!  Ken’s knowledge is a National Asset and Treasure.  NOBODY in America knows as much as Ken
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability?    Yes.  Additionally, the many online practice tests (among the 8 domains) support both the in-class final exam and the CISSP certification exam. What other types of training do you feel should be made available?   The SU course portfolio is already impressive.
SU Security+ Nov 2016

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Currently well executed on all levels.  In particular, our instructor Ken Cutler is the best I’ve ever experienced.  He takes his responsibilities super serious, makes himself available at all times, always respectfully answers student questions, runs a tight ship (while keeping group spirits high), and his tireless commitment shows each day. Having been a longtime adjunct professor at a local graduate school, I must say that there is no other person in cyber security with such a vast range and depth of knowledge.  He gives 110% every moment!  Ken is Supra intelligent.  I look forward to taking my CISSP class with Ken.  I know what it takes for class preparation, class administration, curricula delivery and handling student needs.  Ken does it all.  He puts in mega hours to deliver so much value.  So very committed Ken is.             
What have you learned from the program? Having passed the Security+ exam over 4 years ago, the current curriculum is clearly more challenging. 

Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, although CompTIA must do a much better job in producing question narratives, especially longer lead-in problem statements and how many graphic/”video” questions there are.  Every question must be very clear, succinct, and have zero chance for misinterpretation.  There are some questions which may have more than one answer ONLY because the lead-in narrative can be interpreted more than one way.  If we knew what the question designer was thinking, then the correct answer becomes more obvious.  Also, to emulate what everyone would do in the workplace anyway, especially upon starting a new job, suggest each exam include a glossary of all acronyms.     


Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes.  I put in 15 hour days, just to avoid the commuter traffic in DC…..up at 4 or 430AM every morning.  Nice to have coffee and pastries available at 630AM.  
Thank you so much for all of your help. This class was amazing.  I have not only learned the basis of Sec+ but  I am now able to relate it to my real world.

Given that my IT background and years in the field is very small, I would not be able to say what improvements I would do. As I believe this is most technical, challenging course I have taking, and I have taken extraordinarily challenging classes. For me the course was challenging but rather enjoyable. The material quantity is horribly extensive but Ken broke it up in way that made things easy to understand for me. Everything I had a fuzzy idea of, but now I can see the picture much clearer than before. The test seemed random and the questions were wordy. Almost as intentionally promoting confusion. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? ABSOLUTELY. Is there anything else you would like us to know?  I had a wonderful experience as a student being instructed by Ken, as he is extremely knowledgeable, makes the course quite comprehensive.

Yes, this was a highly accelerated course with a lot of content. The fast based learning will help me be more effective in my job.
I learned how to apply course content to real-life scenarios. Yes, this was a highly accelerated course with a lot of content. The fast based learning will help me be more effective in my job. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes, it was time well spent.


SU CISSP Nov 2016

I think it defined the areas of my career I needed to focus on for the future.


SU CASP Oct 2016
What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Overall, the class was very well taught and the instructor covered the topics very well. I am not sure that there is much that I could say needs to be improved with class, besides the personnel taking the class being more prepared for the broad range of topics that are covered during the training
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?  The instructor was very committed to covered the topics of CASP in detail. I don’t believe that I could have had a better investment than what I received during the week. The only thing that might have been of benefit for me is if the course would have been a two week course. Is there anything else you would like us to know? I believe that I have the material that I need to further my education in CASP, but I am definitely looking at other courses that will allow me to further my education

What have you learned from the program? Building stamina to read, answer and pass the exam.. The big thing was training my mind to de-select wrong answers before focusing in on the correct answer in multiple choice exams..


SU CISSP Oct 2016

What have you learned from the program? I learned a lot more about the 8 domains of CISSP. I had some exposure to them during my graduate degree program at Carnegie Mellon University and over the years through continuing education with the Project Management Institute (PMI) and Information System Audit and Control Association (ISACA), but it was good to explore the topics in greater detail.

Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, and I know that I still have a lot of studying to do. I have to be exposed to material several times before it takes hold and I really truly comprehend it.

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes, I think that this has giving me a good foundation for CISSP. I understand where my weaknesses are and where I need to focus my study efforts.

Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Absolutely, the instructor has demonstrated a framework for passing this exam that I believe is bullet proof, it’s just a matter of following the instructions.

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Absolutely, the course and knowledge gain was priceless.

I just wanted to say thanks for the class. Friday morning I passed my CISSP. Glad to finally get it done. Once again, I think the class helped me prepare a lot for that exam. - I thought the boot camp was an excellent way to prepare for the test. Ken was an awesome instructor who was capable of pairing his vast experience to drive home critical concepts for the exam.
now we need to get my guard unit to get us more training...:)

SU Security+ Sept 2016

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course The course materials flow well and the instructor is amazing with his teaching skills and knowledge of the material.  The practice tests have a few bugs in them that I passed along to the instructor but overall the pool of questions were excellent.
What have you learned from the program? Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability?
The course and materials provided did an excellent job preparing me for the exam and gave me more insight into cyber security.  My experience is in the DOD world and the instructor provided a lot of his experience in the commercial world.

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? I got an excellent return on my investment.  I spent many hours outside of class preparing and going over the course materials and practice questions and homework assignments.

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?  The course was great I wouldn’t really change a thing Mr Cutler is a great teacher and he covered a lot of information in the time we were given.  I know there isn’t much time for actual hands on with the different types of malware and errors but in my opinion a mock hands on lab would be great to put some of the teaching into action so its not just written information but some of the tools used to counter threats could be actually seen and put into practice.   This could be something done after class if the class is interested just as an option. 

What have you learned from the program?   I learned that I wasn’t as abreast with Cyber Security as I thought and from the first time I had taken a Security+ course how much things change have changed.

Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability?  The test did go over most of the topics that Mr Cutler pointed out to us during the course but the test and wording of some of the questions can be confusing and Mr Cutler pointed that out during the lessons how much the test changes weekly.  He (Mr Cutler) is experienced with dealing with corporations which gave me a different perspective on how private sector does things as opposed to the government

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?  Yes Is there anything else you would like us to know?  I really enjoyed the course and I would love to attend another course with Security University and you have my recommendation as professionals in Cyber Security for DMV.  I will definitely recommend your school at my next employer for those needing to get their initial Security Certs or as in my case a “do over” because of how much things have changed in the four years that I initially took my first Security+ class and exam.


SU CISSP Sept 2016
I think the course is probably as good as it can be, given how little guidance ISC2 provides. You’ve certainly done your due diligence in gathering the information we need. The only thing missing is assurance from ISC2 that we’re on the right track..
SU CASP Aug 2016

What have you learned from the program? How to apply high-level skills to work projects and where to find additional material on topics I would like to know more about.  This will help me with my current projects


SU Q/SA- Q/PTL June 2016

I learned and got to personally test a sample methodology for conducting penetration tests of networks. While the course focused primarily on testing from an external perspective, it also allowed the user to read through what internal testing would look like. It reviewed the most common tools used to conduct testing.Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, once the report is complete and I receive feedback I expect to feel prepared to take on my own form of penetration testing.


SU Q/EH June 2016
This training was excellent. I believe in order for a student to become more proficient a lab setup guide could be provided so the student could build a home lab.

What have you learned from the program? A much greater familiarity with Kali Linux, scanning tools and exploit methods that I was not familiar with.  As well provided a lot of resources to further my knowledge.  More in depth knowledge of protocols MD

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?
Some of the course material/handouts had typo’s but the instructor has been on top of them and has gone into the master file and updated them. Were there other learning objectives you wanted to get out of this weeks course?

No.  I have learned an amazing amount of material this week.What other types of training do you feel should be made available?

 

None at this point.  Lots of good material and lots of good labs to reinforce what I have learned.

Is there anything else you would like to know?

Not at this time. What have you learned from the program? I have learned a lot about vulnerabilities and how to identify them along with the tools and process to do it. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes I got an excellent return.

What other types of training do you feel should be made available?Not Sure

Is there anything else you would like us to know? I am impressed with Security University



SU Security+ June 2016

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Catering for lunch, even if it increased the cost of the course.
What have you learned from the program? Having been in this field for a while, and quite familiar with the subject matter, I was pleasantly surprised with how much there still is to learn. This course has opened my eyes to a larger world of Information Security. The practice tests were so focused, and inclusive that I felt absolutely confident when taking the test. As an educator, I found this course doubly rewarding. Ken Cutler is, in a word, fantastic. Not only did he teach me a great deal about the “Security +” subject matter, but also about how to present the material in an engaging, thorough, and enjoyable manner. Though challenging, this course was a wonderful reality check on the field, and current practice. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Absolutely

What other types of training do you feel should be made available?  Like the ones you offer.  Would love a hands on lab as continuing education in which you could practice systems security and vulnerability testing and reporting.   

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?

Nothing really the course set up was perfect for what I needed to learn about the subject matter. What have you learned from the program?
Everything I needed to know to perform my job better and understand how the how system works. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes

If possible, I would have liked to perform actual simulations on course material, but there was not enough time to add such an endeavor. The course was fine as is. What have you learned from the program?   I learned the most about ports and networking, but I also received a much clearer understanding of the entire process by which computers communicate with each other and the internet. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability?    No. I feel the exam is somewhat impractical for actual security knowledge. Ken did a great balance of teaching to the test but explaining real-world security concepts. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?   Yes I did. I learned more in the first two days of this course than I did during my college-level networking class.

What other types of training do you feel should be made available?   After reading the list of courses offered, I am not entirely sure what else could be missing. I do believe, however, Ken would be fantastic at teaching a course on auditing.

Is there anything else you would like us to know?   Ken is a fantastic instructor. He explained concepts effectively and succinctly while maintaining time to explain how concepts applied to a real business environment. I feel Ken could teach me so much more than Security+.


SU Security+ May 2016

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?

I'm going to be honest with you, I had such a good experience with Ken and this class that I would be hard pressed to find something that I wanted more of or could improve. Not once when I went home did I think to myself, “Gosh I wish we had x” or “Darnnit they didn't do y”.
What have you learned from the program? I was looking forward to learning more about types of attacks, malware, and cryptography and I was not let down. I came to the class with networking knowledge but I definitely built on it. The physical and occupational security portion of the exam I knew was necessary but I wasn't really looking forward to it. The way Ken presents the material however made it really interesting and I really enjoyed learning the material from him. I'm really glad that I had the opportunity to learn that material from someone like Ken because if I did CBT's and self studies it would have put me to sleep.
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability?Yes, without a doubt.
 


SU CASP May 2016

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?

The course materials flow well and the instructor is amazing with his teaching skills and knowledge of the material.  The practice tests have a few bugs in them that I passed along to the instructor but overall the pool of questions were excellent. What have you learned from the program? A lot of good things that I have not come across in my career. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability?
The exam was unbelievably hard and the course material did a good job preparing me for it. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
I got an excellent return on my investment.

What other types of training do you feel should be made available?

Not sure at this time what else should be made available. JD


What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?  It was a lot of course material – it seemed more than CISSP.  The material was broad – covering many topics.  It will be interesting to see what the test reveals.

What have you learned from the program?   VDI, etc.  Since this is an advanced security course, more SEIM and possibly some current appliances that are deployed on a network (more than just NIPS, NIDS, etc).  Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability?  To be determined. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?  I believe so.  If anything, it was a great refresher on many topics.

What other types of training do you feel should be made available?  For people who want to become ISSE or ISSO or even a cyber analyst perhaps we could have a SEIM bootcamp; firewall bootcamp; Bluecoat; etc.  There are some large network security firms around here – many sell their wares around here; perhaps SU could be an extension and teach for them?

Is there anything else you would like us to know?  Good stuff! Jim


SU CISSP April 2016

There is a lot of CISSP material to absorb in 5 days, I do not think that can be helped. It would be nice if the reading materials were send out 3 – 4 weeks in advance so that students could get a bigger head start on the material. What have you learned from the program?
I learned a lot more about the 8 domains of CISSP. I had some exposure to them during my graduate degree program at Carnegie Mellon University and over the years through continuing education with the Project Management Institute (PMI) and Information System Audit and Control Association (ISACA), but it was good to explore the topics in greater detail. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, and I know that I still have a lot of studying to do. I have to be exposed to material several times before it takes hold and I really truly comprehend it. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Yes, I think that this has giving me a good foundation for CISSP. I understand where my weaknesses are and where I need to focus my study efforts.

What other types of training do you feel should be made available?

I think that Security University offers a great deal of training. It needs to promote itself more through professional associations like the Project Management Institute, Information System Audit and Control Association, Healthcare Information Management Systems Society, Workgroup for Electronic Data Exchange to promote more of the training programs that are offered.

Is there anything else you would like us to know?

Thank you for encouraging me to attend the CISSP class and to pursue a career in the field of information technology. I appreciated the advice and mentorship from Sondra and Ken.

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?
I think that some videos interspersed through the course – especially on some of the complicated subjects might help. Perhaps as either stuff to watch before it is discussed in class or even in class may help in a few areas. May also give the instructor a little of a break ( not that it shows it is needed – but as a student it may be a little refreshing an I would think as an instructor, a nice short break. Not sure how you do it – but Ken has a lot of stamina!

What have you learned from the program? I believe I gained much knowledge in many areas, but mostly – what to expect on the exam and Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes – exam was a good measure. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Absolutely!  Not only great course – but met a great group of people.


SU Security+ April 2015

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?

I'm going to be honest with you, I had such a good experience with Ken and this class that I would be hard pressed to find something that I wanted more of or could improve. Not once when I went home did I think to myself, “Gosh I wish we had x” or “Darnnit they didn't do y”.
What have you learned from the program? I was looking forward to learning more about types of attacks, malware, and cryptography and I was not let down. I came to the class with networking knowledge but I definitely built on it. The physical and occupational security portion of the exam I knew was necessary but I wasn't really looking forward to it. The way Ken presents the material however made it really interesting and I really enjoyed learning the material from him. I'm really glad that I had the opportunity to learn that material from someone like Ken because if I did CBT's and self studies it would have put me to sleep.
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, without a doubt.
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Without a doubt. This is far more then a “certification” class. I can honestly say I am leaving this experience a better security professional then when I started.
What other types of training do you feel should be made available?
The next thing I need to learn, as part of my career development is SQL and database security. I have a lot more then that that I want to learn as part of my career progression. Speaking greedily I wish Security University would offer these through Ken.
Is there anything else you would like us to know?
I would like both Sondra and Ken know that I'm eternally grateful for this opportunity. When I met Sondra at the security conference I thought the fact that I was the lucky recipient of a course was too good to be true. After going through the experience, I was dead wrong. Personally speaking this is something that is going to improve my quality of life and career and for that I'm really grateful. As for the course itself I couldn't be happier. I'm not just pandering here. I have taken courses with New Horizons in Arlington and with SourceFire in Columbia Maryland. I would NEVER take a course with either again that an employer didn't require me to. Here's the difference, the two that I mentioned did NOT teach me anything. They were just trainers rather then teachers. A trainer just reads to me from a book, uses the approved slides and can't answer all of my questions as they come up in class and I'm trying to comprehend the material. That NEVER happened during this class. Ken can and enjoys teaching, when I had a question he was not only able to answer it to my satisfaction then and there so I but also relate it to real world experience so that I finished the conversation knowing the answer to my question.


SU Q/WP Qualifed Wireless Professional April 2015

What have you learned from the program? I learned that if you do not continuously stay up to date with your skill set, you fall behind way too fast. I also learned that I want to take more wireless security courses to pursue the direction of my career that I have chosen. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? After taking the exam and seeing my results, I feel that it was great indicator of combining what I already knew and putting it together with a whole higher level of new knowledge in a logical and productive way. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
I feel I received an outstanding return. The time I invested in the course and test was very productive, and the outcome of that time spent will be very valuable in my future. What other types of training do you feel should be made available? After looking through your catalog, I cannot think of anything at this time. I will keep my eyes open for new technologies and ideas that present themselves. Is there anything else you would like us to know? Just to keep up the outstanding offerings, to give people the opportunity to excel in their chosen fields.


Ma'am, I wanted to thank you for the opportunity to attend the CWNA Q W/P course.  I learned quite a bit, and it also re-enforced what I already knew but didn't realize.  I passed with 83%.   Kevin is an outstanding instructor.  I was a bit apprehensive about if I was ready for the test, but the information he presented during the week in class was done in such a way, that I actually learned it, and didn't realize how much I retained until I was on my own(Testing).  Will a certificate be generated?  I was going to forward it up to my management. Please thank Kevin for me.  I look forward to taking the next level as soon as training funds loosen up in my division. Thank you again..  I will be staying in touch for other opportunities that may present themselves.  Keep me in mind  J


Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Absolutely, I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot. Attached is my evaluation. I wanted to say thanks again for getting me into this class, I really enjoyed it. I was actually just talking to my VP about my two (great) experiences at SU and the other courses you provides and he asked me to send him a soft copy of the brochure so he can distribute to the company for anyone else that is interested in training. 

Here is my response for the QWP. Thank you very much again for the opportunity to excel.


SU CISSP April 2015

Anything that would allow more time for practice questions would have been helpful, but I appreciate the heavy use of practice questions to assess readiness to sit for the exam. What have you learned from the program? Learned how the CISSP common bodies of knowledge are organized, their content, how the test is structured around those CBK's, how to approach different types of questions, the need to pay close attention to the subtle differences between answers, especially when the question is asked “backwards.” Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, though I will have to be very careful with the unusual wording of some questions. Really appreciate keeping practice questions available to class participants beyond completion of the class so we can assess our readiness to take the exam! This class gave me the tools to carry the ball the rest of the way; namely, continue my review and practice questions until my practice scores are high enough to take the actual exam.
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Yes, (a) Knowing exactly what I need to study and review further before taking the exam, (b) Looking forward to going into the CISSP exam much better prepared, and (c) Looking forward to my CISSP cert opening up more job opportunities since the cert is increasingly required for federal DoD contractors… As our CISSP instructor, Ken Cutler was outstanding!!! Is there anything else you would like us to know? Yes… see instructor the following comments on the instructor… Ken's depth of IT security knowledge, his years of professional experience, his enthusiasm, his interest in making sure all participants understood the material, and his ability to keep class participants engaged throughout some long days was remarkable.
Ken's deep knowledge of the exam subject matter, the types of exam questions, the subtle differences between answers, and the "best answer" approach enabled participants to complete the course with some excellent test-taking strategies. In short, Ken was outstanding, and I would recommend others who want to be thoroughly prepared to take the CISSP to make sure he is teaching the class when they enroll.


SU Q/EH April 2015

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? With the sheer amount of information, understanding the difficulties of the logistics, I think the course being 2 weeks would allow the gained knowledge to sink in on a more permanent basis. What other types of training do you feel should be made available? The full range of courses pretty much fills what I feel are most the needs of someone who plans to have a career as a fully qualified Security Professional. Were there other learning objectives you wanted to get out of this week's course? My objectives were completely met in this course. This knowledge will allow me to progress in my career, and ease movement into a more security related field. What have you learned from the program? This program provides a significant amount of material that needs to be absorbed within an intense period of time. I feel this is the perfect method to challenge an individual who may have become complacent in their career. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? I think the final exam will at least be an indicator as to how quickly I was able absorb at least the majority of the presented material.

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course ? I have received an outstanding return on the time and effort invested in this course. I am going to become an adhoc sales staff to all of my professional contacts in the IT world, referring them to Security University. I fully believe in the mission and goals of SU
Is there anything else you would like us to know?
As I said previously, I am completely comfortable becoming an unofficial sales staff. To get the word out in my world. I also would like to continue to expand my skill set, and knowledge gained by attending SU courses. So far I have not had an instructor that was anything less than outstanding.


SU Security+ April 2015
 

SU Q/SA April 2015
Sorry it took so long to get back to you, life is a little hectic. 1. do you think it would have been better to do the Qualified Ethical Hacker class before this class? Yes, I talked to a couple of the other students who took Q|EH prior to the class and from what they told me I think that would be a great prerequisite class if you are starting out. I had some knowledge from my Bachelor's classes I took, but that was 2 years ago. 2. could you have learned that information in another way to better prepare you for class, now that class is over?  Most of the  material I found you had to pay for and it ranged from a couple hundred to over a thousand, these were video training or online. I never found any training that was free to get. I hope this is helpful. I really enjoyed the class and it was one of the best I've attended for Instructor knowledge and hands on training.

SU Q/EH June 2014

Were there other learning objectives your wanted to get out of this weeks course? There are none that come to mind, but I'm always interested in real-world applications and situational awareness of what's out there. We had an adequate amount and time was limited due to the volume of material to cover. Morrow did illustrate some other approaches and applications that were “out there” for us to consider/research if interested. Helpful to me to just know the names of other products and the quick pros and cons. Learned a lot from Morrow. An incredibly knowledgeable and patient instructor.
Is there anything else you would like to know? No, but do want to comment on the professionalism, work ethic, and incredible knowledge that Morrow presented to all of us. I could spend weeks shadowing him just to learn “how it's really done”. I asked frequent questions about theoretical application as well as real examples. While I'm sure this extended the time in class, it was invaluable to me and he commented that this was part of the value of this course. We never got far off topic as a group. I can read numerous books and would never gain anywhere near the knowledge I learned from Morrow and from other class participants. This course was not taught by someone with theoretical knowledge, but by an expert who has extensive, real-world experience. He has incredible patience for responding to questions, some language barriers,


SU Security+ Aug 2014

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?

Hi Sondra, Attached you will find a copy of my survey. I learnt a lot and Ken is so knowledgeable in this topic and taught it in an easy to understand manner, it was awesome! I know more now to be dangerous but also protect myself and clients.


SU CISSP Sept 2014

Is there anything else you would like us to know? Sondra and Ken, I wanted to pass on to both of you my thanks in preparing me for the CISSP examination, which I took today and passed.  I could not have completed and passed the exam without Security University's outstanding facilities and one of its best instructors. 

My background in IT mapped to many of the domains within the CISSP program, which I didn't know.  A chance meeting with the owner of Security University put me on a course to take a preparatory CISSP exam course from Ken Cutler, a professional of many disciplines.  Ken's instruction and course handouts brought my background up to date and allowed me to sit, take and pass the exam without "two" beads of sweat.  (There was only one drop ... :). 

I really liked the free practice tests coupled with the training aids that Ken / SU developed to create ways to remember and grasp key concepts and connect the exam questions. I got a great return on the time invested in the course? Yes. I knew relatively nothing about computer security prior to this class. Now I want to learn more. Thank you for an excellent class! PC


SU Q/EH Sept 2014

What have you learned from the program? I have learned how "hackers" think - and how to use tools that hackers use to compromise a system. Before I came to SU I was system engineer, now I'm a cybersecurity engineer. Is there anything else you would like us to know? I have learned so much from the variety of instructors and classes I took at SU. SU is the best! I really like the nested hands on labs that take you step by step through the concepts and processes. I can talk the talk and walk the walk with any hiring manager after taking the Q/ISP and CISSP classes at SU - thank U!

Morrow Long is an amazing instructor and computer geek genius! He provides each student individual attention during the labs, when we miss a point or with the exam questions. His concise explanations were very helpful and he never allowed to get behind before and after class if necessary. Morrow's excelled at helping students understand what to do during each VM's lab and post class assignments. HelenR

Enjoyed Georgia's presentation on Buffer Overflows! Thank you for an outstanding job!!!

What have you learned from the program? I have gained a much needed appreciation for how vulnerable systems can be to a trained hacker. Through this course I have gained a sense of the range of threats that exist in the world currently. FC

What have you learned from the program? I learned a lot about the domains and how they operate and work together to make a company (OS) secure and how to limit vulnerabilities to provide the most confidentiality BT- workforce


SU SECURITY+ July 2014
I learned a lot and Ken is so knowledgeable in this topic and taught it in an easy to understand manner, it was awesome! I know more now to be dangerous but also protect myself and clients.JD

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Nothing, I had an amazing experience and the instructor is by far the most knowledgeable I have had. What have you learned from the program? Encryption types and their uses, the importance of having a Business Continuity Plan, real world approaches to solving security issues, especially with regards to networking. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes! The more I reviewed the wealth of information presented the more prepared I felt for security type questions. MM

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Nothing to improve upon
What have you learned from the program? Subnetting, Firewall configuration, Best Practices for security, Ports - RS
What have you learned from the program? Many things that I had not been exposed to previously. Great content! RS


SU Q/CA July 2014

A little more separation in regards to the Federal and DoD standards. I also understand that we are currently in a transition from DIACAP to RMF, so the concerns about those subjects getting mixed up will be an issue until RMF completely takes over. What have you learned from the program? Several things, first being, knowing where to look for the information on the controls and their descriptions. Second, there is a lot of redundant information and with RMF the goal is to help minimize this issue. Third, policy and technical are much different, and just being able to bridge the gap will prove very beneficial in my future endeavors. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes, this is the shortest and fastest paced class available. BB

What have you learned from the program? The process involved with C&A and the importance it brings to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information. Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes, I feel I definitely did. GB


SU CISSP June 2014

What have you learned from the program? The CISSP Curriculum and Exam is geared primarily for the private sector, I work primarily in a DoD environment. The information provides me a more comprehensive understanding on how the Private sector approach Information Security, as well as the references associated with it. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Not really, I feel with additional reading and preparation along with extensive practice test taken, I will get to the necessary state I need to be in order to pass the exam KM


SU Q/EH 2014
awesome email thank you for the kind words and yes a hotel is a challenge. Glad we could work through your exam challenges.. we will work on that for the future.. Im very thank ful for your patience.. an attitude.. GH

SU Q/CA April 2014

What have you learned from the program? The FISMA tracing through NIST/CNSS was most helpful for me. Really tied together a lot of loose ends as far as traceability goes. The new RMF process was a huge help. KG

What have you learned from the program? I have been doing a basic study of the NIST publications for the last six months or so. This class gave me a deeper look inside, how and what they are used for. This was a great class to type up some loose ends for me. MP


SU SECURITY+ April 2014

What have you learned from the program? Before taking the Security + course, I knew enough to be effectively dangerous to the network, but after taking the course w/ Ken Cutler, I can say that I will be dangerously effective on how to secure the network.Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? The preparation provided by this course had me ready to take on the exam. NH

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Not much, the class was a no nonsense laser focused training event. Ken used a great depth of working knowledge to deliver the material in an understandable format.
What have you learned from the program? This course provided the fundamentals needed to operate in the fast paced world of information security. Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, indeed. The Security + exam could use some clarification. This class dramatically enhanced my understanding of information security. JB.

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? The course is great. I cannot think of anything else that would improve the course - Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? I got a great return on the time invested on the course. It gave me a clear direction to study so that I could pass the test MO


SU CISSP April - May 2014
Is there anything else you would like us to know? Ken Cutler was excellent…The course met the expectations of the firm based on internal requirements. I would not change anything. What have you learned from the program? Provided me with a better understanding of network security requirements BobW

1. do you think it would have been better to do the Qualified Ethical Hacker class before this class? Yes, I talked to a couple of the other students who took Q|EH prior to the class and from what they told me I think that would be a great prerequisite class if you are starting out. I had some knowledge from my Bachelor's classes I took, but that was 2 years ago. 2. could you have learned that information in another way to better prepare you for class, now that class is over?  Most of the  material I found you had to pay for and it ranged from a couple hundred to over a thousand, these were video training or online. I never found any training that was free to get. I hope this is helpful. I really enjoyed the class and it was one of the best I've attended for Instructor knowledge and hands on training. Will you be out at DefCon this year? I will try to attend that again, it was a blast last year. CBloor


SU Q/CA march 2014

The FISMA tracing through NIST/CNSS was most helpful for me. Really tied together a lot of loose ends as far as traceability goes. The new RMF process was a huge help. It was a pleasure attending the class and meeting you both. I'll highly recommend your facility to anyone in the market for security training. I will keep you posted on my process in obtaining the FQNV k@delphinus


SU CISSP March 2014
Thanks.  I got an offer last week that I can't pass up.  I think it was 250 applications, about 10 serious interviews but it was networking that put me in the job. JMIller
SU Q/EH Jan 2014

Is there anything else you would like to know? Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes
Is there anything else you would like us to know? Great course, Morrow is a really good instructor, I wish I could spend weeks learning from him.

 

SU CISSP Jan 2014
Just wanted to let you know I passed the exam this morning. Thanks for all your help. Please pass on my thanks to Ken as well. MSmith

SU Security+ Jan 2014
Hope you have a great holidy! Attached is my survey responses, and I did not inflate my marks. The course and Ken's instruction were spot on OUTSTANDING! Hopefully, I'll be able to attend another SU course in the future!

The entire course was outstanding. Ken Cutler is a master instructor. The way he explained and taught items from the Security+ course made it easier for me to understand than anything I learned in 16 week college courses! If I could take another course with Ken, I would jump at the opportunity to learn more from him!

SU Security+ Sept

What have you learned from the program? Taking the CISSP class really helped me think from different points of view (management, technical and operational).
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, I found the final exam to be quite challenging but that's good because it let's me know how much I need to study and prepare for the real exam.
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes, definitely! I wish the course was a day or two longer.
What other types of training do you feel should be made available? Security University already offers the trainings I am interested in.
Is there anything else you would like us to know? Ken did an amazing job teaching me the course material!! His knowledge and expertise was amazing!


Ken did a great job giving us the knowledge we need to pass the exam, I have a much better understanding of the architecture of automated systems and how that relates to computer security
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Absolutely

Hi Ken and Sondra..
I have attached my course review.  Thank you very much for providing an outstanding environment and quality instruction. Ken was able to convey very hard technical data in a way that I was able to learn.  I still need to continue to study and keep taking your practice tests. Those are not only great for test studying but also for continual re-education.  I hope that I will still have access to them. Absolutly! My company was very happy to hear of my success!

 


SU CISSP Sept

What have you learned from the program? There are a lot of things and domains that I don't cover on a normal basis that are covered in the CISSP and it was great to learn about them as well as hear “real world stories” about how they are used and implemented. Also to have an “auditor's view” of the process, controls, and other normal practices, I believe I will be better prepared for what the test may have in store for me.
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Sort of. As with many industry exams, sometimes it accurately reflects the real world, other times, it's as far “off base” as possible, covering data and practices that haven't been used in industry for over 6 years.
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? I believe I did.

Thank you for allowing me to attend the CISSP class last week.  I was really impressed with Ken's knowledge and expertise in the CISSP course.  He is a tremendous asset to SU.  His personality and great humor always kept us going throughout the week.  Attached is my SU Student evaluation as requested.
        I wish you nothing but the best! Thank you for helping us the veterans! )

What have you learned from the program? I have learned that there is more to CISSP than just regulations and physical security.
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Absolutely, I believe the exam will be a challenge, but with Ken's guidance ability we shall prevail.

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? I believe so, every penny!

What have you learned from the program? 1) Importance of being responsible and cognizance towards Info Security
2) Learning and understanding the concepts and application of the knowledge in correct away. 3) Business continuity, Disaster Recovery and Crypto.
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Yes, best time ever invested, the vast experience of Ken totally amazed me. Ability to deliver the finer aspects of the technology evolution over the decades chronologically across the multiple platforms/fields is totally outstanding. I am looking forward to learn more from Ken infuture practical classes.

SU Security+ August 2013 Montgomery AL ANG COMM COMMAND

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course?

The course was outstanding! The only improvement would be to have an additional day to cover material and review.
What have you learned from the program? I believe that I have a better understanding of both the terminology and the evolving threats to our networks
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes!
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Absolutely!


SU Security+ August 2013 Montgomery AL ANG COMM COMMAND

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Nothing!

What have you learned from the program? This an excellent program to better understand network security. The instruction was organized, personable, professional and it gave me a better understanding of network security. I learned more in 4 days than I have learned about network security in 10 years. OUTSTANDING!! I ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND THIS PROGRAM!!
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes.

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course?
Well worth them money and time investment! I recommend this to anyone looking to acquire the security + cert. This was a challenging week of study and classroom instruction but it is tremendous. Great Job!! Col. EG


What other types of training do you feel should be made available? A recommendation of follow on classes and why would be helpful. We need to do this every year!!

Is there anything else you would like us to know? GREAT JOB!! THANKS!!!


SU Security+ August 2013

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? The course is laid out really well and the way the topics are covered bring together how and why we need to fully understand security in networking.
What have you learned from the program? This training gave a better understanding of every topic / domain that was covered in the Security+ exam. This training also laid out a better understanding for the CISSP exam.
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, the final exam did test on what we learned through the week, And even the example's that Ken brought to the table about the new practical examinations were very useful for the final exam.
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes, I obtained what I set out to come here and get and am very grateful and happy for the training that I received for future job placement.
What other types of training do you feel should be made available?
Currently from what I see through the website, Security University offers pretty much all the main important security training that is out there
Is there anything else you would like us to know? Thank you again for the training it was great coming here and getting the training and finally a certification in Security+, considering I have been touching a computer for the past 22 years I should of gotten it sooner MW.


SU Security+ August 2013 232 Combat Comm Squadron /ANG Montgomery AL

I honestly learn a lot. Some of the information I was familiar with but it makes more sense now. Virgil
What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? Hindsight being 20/20, maybe requiring students to take so many practice exams in each domain PRIOR to the actual class. As it was, it was “optional” for students to take any of the practice exams. By requiring maybe one 25-question practice per domain, I think that students would be forced to actually take the contents more seriously
What have you learned from the program? It was a great condensed refresher! Being in management, I had not seen a lot of the items in about 6-8 years. Also, learned a lot more about the various protocols and access matters than before.
Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Overall, I think the test was a decent assessment, but there were a few questions or topics on the actual test and some of the practice exams that were not covered by the course slides/materials. They were relatively minor, and most did not show up on the actual test.
Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Definitely! PTRITZ, Capt, AL ANG


SU CISSP July 2013
I want to share my review of my CISSP Bootcamp training experience, and why I chose to attend Security University in Herdon, VA.

I visited in-person a few schools and talked to the owners prior to making a final decision. I considered price, location, and what I discerned as the best classroom environment and the preparedness of the school for this type of training.

I decided on Security University in Herndon, VA, for the following reasons, and  why I feel they excel over other schools . The advertised class instruction rates are better than others, and their curriculum support is far better for those rates.   Also, as soon as I was registered, they provided eBooks that are better than some of the other books recommended by other schools. They also connected me to their on-line practice exam site right away to try some tests before the beginning of this 5-day training period. No other school I talked to had this feature. I was also able to get some questions answered by the school owner, Sondra Schneider, in preparation for that week.

The class instructor for the week I attended, Ken Cutler, was really excellent. The teaching environment and other facilities at their school were wonderful and supportive. The attendance was around 10, where they like to keep the classroom size intimate yet engaging. 

I felt this was the best choice, and it proved to be so - I do not think I'd have had as good an experience, nor be as confident afterward, if I had chosen another training school .

Security University has been a very good experience for me. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone who asks me.
SU Q/ND July 2013

What have you learned from the program? I have learned techniques necessary to secure and defend the entire network. I have also learned how to see and defend attacks.Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? I think the test will accurately test what I have learned in this training.

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes. This class has put together all the different aspects of an enterprise network and provides the necessary training to defend the whole network and not a just one piece of the network, i.e. network work defense, server defense, work station defense.

What other types of training do you feel should be made available?

Incident response, incident response management, and possibly the legal side of defending and protecting the network, i.e. the right to privacy, consent to monitoring, and the legality and role of IT staff when it comes to investigations. RHeflin



SU Security+ June 2013

What have you learned from the program?Do you feel that the final exam will effectively test what you have learned and your underlying ability? Yes, it really tested my knowledge base of the course material

Did you get a good return on the time invested in the course? Yes, every minute was time well spent.



What other types of training do you feel should be made available? Q/EH

Is there anything else you would like us to know? It's a credit to the instructor for his deployment of the material to reach all student regardless of the students skill sets.


 



SU CISSP April 2013

everyday students send thank you emails.. Here's an email note from today.
'met Steve at a jobfair 45 days ago. I suggested he use his GI Bill to come to  CISSP class. Today he passed his CISSP exam.

SS
Like to thank Security University and Ken Cutler for helping me finally pass my CISSP. I tried twice self study unsuccessfully. I finally realized that I needed someone to help change my outlook on how to approach the test. Ken helped get me out of the weeds and focus on what is important to pass the test. The materials at Security University are the most updated and align with what is actually on the test. The fact that you can use your GI Bill makes taking the courses feasible for many of us. I have and will recommend that for all IT certifications people attend Security University. I have completed two classes there and will be back in future to further my career. Thanks Ken and Sondra for finally getting me over this hurdle.
Yeah I got No Score (passed)

Your training was outstanding!  Very concise - helped me sharpen my focus on the critical information that mattered for the test.  Instead of studying the wrong things from the wrong book :) I studied essential information needed to pass the CISSP.


SU QEH Jan 2013
I learned so much, that was an awesome class.. C. O.. Vet
SU CISSP Jan 2013
Thanks for the class. I have retained a great deal of useful information that I will apply on the up coming test. I will let you know afterwards on how I did. Ken was a great instructor. I will encourage SU at my new work. I have attached the survey as you requested. Again thanks--your the best. Max passed his exam 5/13 wohoo!
SU Security+ Jan 2013

Nothing, it was a good refresher and additive after completing the CISSP course. It was a good informative course. Definitely a challenge, but a good one. Security + coupled with CISSP provide a good back ground LaKisha

This course was very helpful. Ken Cutler was able to deconstruct the course materials into an easily understandable process. NL.

SU CISSP Dec 2012

Certainly would. Ken was simply amazing in his presentation of the information. He presented in a professional manner while tying all of the difficult concepts together. This is what I was missing from all other courses and studies I've attended. A few more weeks of intense study and I'm very confident I'll “get a no score” for the January exam. Excellence job to Security University. APiscitelli Sparta

Ken Culter is a great educator. His knowledge and subject matter expert in CISSP and Information Security was well demonstrated. His arrangement of the 10 Domains related to each other in a learnable way; not one student was left behind, any questions or experience was never belittled. Also, I like the way he kept strict control of the class. Outstanding Job! MSGT VALLEN USARMY

Would love it if Sec Univ was one stop for all 8570 training. Michael Glotfelty GDIT, RET MAJ


SU SECURITY+ DEC 2012
The entire course was outstanding. Ken Cutler is a master instructor. The way he explained and taught items from the Security+ course made it easier for me to understand than anything I learned in 16 week college courses! If I could take another course with Ken, I would jump at the opportunity to learn more from him!
SU CISSP NOV 2012
If anyone can teach the CIISP course, its Ken Cutler! Best instructor! We were impressed with his passion and energy teaching the course. He was effortless, committed and made every effort to keep us focused. MiMi

I really learned a lot from the instruction and the preparation materials provided. Regardless of my exam outcome, I believe I got full value for my time in this course. Thank you. BTAGUE

Great course!!!! PKorkowski, CCIE # 10696 were sending the whole team!

Not a thing the course was awesome. It was my first time coming and learning about PKI. It was very intuitive. would recommend if the is a cert out there for this school to grab it and teach it. Yes when is the next class I'll be back. Thank you Sondra and Amy US Army JTillman
SU Security+ October 2012
Great course. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to strengthen their knowledge in security. The instructor was amazing and the CEO made the whole process from registering to completing the class completely easy and personable. The whole staff genuinely cared about their students, which is rare to find these days.

Ken did an outstanding job making the information relevant, yet pointing out what we needed to know to help pass the CISSP test. Dsydrow

This course with Ken Cutler was a life changing experience!
I now know I can pass the exam and I now know what to study. I highly recommend this course to anyone wishing to forward there career in IT security, IT management, or IT auditing. MMassy


SU Security+ Sept 2012

I can't say enough about how good an instructor Ken Cutler is. His knowledge of the subject is encyclopedic and he is able to systematically render the complex understandable. He not only knows the subjects exhaustively but also provides informed judgments on their relative merits which greatly aided me in understanding. I came in expecting a test-prep course but he greatly increased my general understanding of the topic as well. Frtiz! I passed the first time.

Ken was really an exciting instructor; he made the material fun and easier to comprehend. His real world experience gave me a different perspective of the field. His class was awesome and I will highly recommend him to anyone.Rayshe Passed the first time!

Thank you soooOOOoooo much for the great class! Xris


SU Q/CA Sept 2012

I don't see how you could ever top Jeremy Alward as an instructor for this course. Totally outstanding. Wegman

I thought that this was a wonderful course. The instructor was extremely knowledgable, and very well spoken. I would love to come back for the CISM class.

Thanks to all of you for a great week. I felt like I was driving a new Toyota iQ next to a bunch of BMW's
on I-66. It was rough but I feel I did well and know an avalanche more than I did previously.

Thanks Jeremy & Sondra, Very exciting! With this having been my first crack at the process it seemed very overwhelming at first, but working through the process was very relaxing after having stepped through parts of the process in class. I struggled a bit with not wanting to leave any information types out, but feeling like there weren't enough information types present. I appreciate the feedback on the Practical. I'll continue to fine tune my understanding and application of the SP800-53a.   I'm sure our paths will cross again in the future. Adam


SU CISSP August 2012
Thank you all for taking time out of your life to teach us the fundamentals and foundations of being and Information Security Professional. Ken Cutler did an outstanding job in presenting the material. He definitely made me a lot more comfortable and confident in taking the test. Keep up the good work.

The course itself was extremely challenging. The course was perfect on all detailed corners concerning the defensive end.


SU Q/EH Fort Bragg May 2012
Thanks again for the great class and efforts in providing this training. Outstanding Instructor will gladly attend future classes Mr. Long teaches. MAS
This course was more hands on than the EC Council CEH course I took 4 yrs ago. I learned 300% more knowledge from this course. Personal preference to change the course would be have a culmalative lab that follows the flow of the system hacking methodology and ties it all together agaisnt a simlulated ISP/target network. I think a lab of this sort would help bring home the full picture of what/when/how to apply the concepts and tools especially for those new to the content

A great experience even for the most seasoned networking professional.

Very intensive, highly technical course best focused for individuals who design or support wireless networks. Well presented by an expert instructor, not only in wireless knowledge but also in overall network expertise and industry experience. Great job!!!

Content is somewhat overkill for anyone who is mostly interested in IT management / architecture, IT audit, or Information/network security, even though it is required prereq for CWSP.

I am very impressed with the instructor, one of the best instructors I have had the pleasure of being trained by. Thanks to the instructor this training experience was excellent. ' dedication to the material and the students made all the difference for me

The presentation and delivery of materials was excellent. The classes allow for real world examples and an opportunity for Q & A which self-study does not always afford.
SU Sec+ Feb 2012
I enjoyed every minute of time spent in the classroom with Ken. He is an excellent instructor and knows the course content like the back of his hand. I hope that one day I can be as well versed as he in the field. My hat goes off to Security University. I will definitely recommend this and other courses to my friends, family and colleagues.

Ken was an extraordinary and a very impressive instructor!! Cooper, IAO, DoD Navy

After failing my CISSP exam, I figured that I needed help. Not having money for training, I turned to my GI Bill for a solution and found Security University. I signed up for SU CISSP boot camp and it was AWESOME and SU's program was spot on. The course was taught by Ken Cutler and he was an OUTSTANDING instructor! I would recommend this training to anyone with a goal of CISSP; because SU help me obtain my goal of becoming a Certified Information Systems Security Professional ( CISSP ).

The CISSP course was VERY, VERY GOOD! Ken was an AWESOME instructor!!!! I believe that after taking the class, I have the knowledge needed to pass the exam. Cooper IAM

I have received quite a few inquiries about the class and your programs from our Navy customers. I wanted to share the credential with you so you know that your program helped. Everybody on our program is thrilled that the Navy appointed me. Lead IA GD DoN/DoD Programs

Great training! I learned a lot from this training class. I enjoyed the real-life examples that Jeremy provided. He had a good way to explain and make the training materials easy to understand. CBruce Oshkosh

SU Security+ Feb 2012
AHHH Your right! I should have been taking practice tests and studying more before I came. The course was intense because I didn’t have the background I should have. I’m trying to rectify that when it comes to CISSP, and start now. I know that wasn’t about the course, but maybe if there was more emphasis on preparation prior to coming, it would have been less stressful for me. The best was passing! THANK YOU Ken and Sondra.

Ken's advice, suggestions, guidance, and insight have really helped me through the CISSP learning experience. I am proud to have him as my initial instructor for CISSP and look forward to seeing him around SU in the future. I hope you have something special planned for his 63 rd birthday! He deserves it!

SU CWNA San Jose 2012
__ Very intense introduction to 802.11-based networking, including many details of the related 802.11 standards, RF link design and analysis, basic packet analysis, how configurations impact sites, how sites impact configurations, etc. Definitely not an “Administration” class in the typical sense. Focuses more on wireless networking architecture and design than on administration. Fred

Because of the instructors understanding of the subject and patience with our questions – I understand Wi-Fi much better today. Ruchi BrocadeNetworks

Is there anything else you would like us to know?
I enjoyed every minute of time spent in the classroom with Ken. He is an excellent instructor and knows the course content like the back of his hand. I hope that one day I can be as well versed as he in the field. My hat goes off to Security University. I will definitely recommend this and other courses to my friends, family and colleagues.

Congratulations on your successful Security+ Certification achievement. Who knew a few weeks ago, a meeting at a trade show could result in a positive career move for you?  You make me proud! and show me my time at these shows is worth it :) Thank you so much! It was a perfect way to close out this year. You are more than welcome for the kind words and yes you may quote me. Have a Happy New Year and I look forward to seeing you and Ken in the near future.

The class was more engaging than attempting to self-study for the exam. Seeing how the concepts in the book are explained and applied in the real world is a great benefit in understanding of the technology and preparing for the exam. Metka's delivery of the materials and discussion of real world examples was awesome.

Kudo's to Metka, she is exceptional, and we absolutely recommend her. This is well worth the $ for our organization for beginner/intermediate level operator. Contractor

The presentation and delivery of materials was excellent. The classes allow for real world examples and an opportunity for Q & A which self-study does not always afford. SGriffith

What, if anything, would you have improved on the course? The course, itself, was excellent and although there might be things you could add, nothing I can think of at the moment would be absolutely necessary. I know I marked a lot of Outstandings but I really believe that. The course was great, the teacher was, I enjoyed myself and learned a lot. Couldn't have asked for better.

Just remember you have a great program and that is why I selected Security University out of the many possible vendors when I found out that I would need this class. I really shopped around and you can't beat the training, scope and versatility. I will look forward to taking more classes from your school. Southeastern Computer Consultants, Inc.

Hello Sondra and Ken, Received the results today... Good news... I passed! I don't think I would have been able to do it without the class so GOOD JOB!!! Took the exam on 6/25 so it took just over a month to receive the
results.  Not bad.... I heard people were waiting 6 weeks or more. I'll recommend the course to any of my colleagues interested in CISSP. Thanks again, J Donachy CISO J&J Health Care Systems Inc. MD&D IT Compliance

Just wanted to pass along a note to state that I enjoyed the June 20-24 CISSP class in Reston VA.  My wife bought a ton of post-it notes and I did my own “Hollywood Squares” that Ken used in the classroom on a wall in my basement when I returned home.  I read over the material numerous times from the class, read the majority of the Official ISC2  Harold Tipton e-book and then read the 11 th Hour CISSP book the night before the exam and I passed!   I took the exam July 9 th in Baltimore City.  Thanks for providing a great class and a foundation of material to study for.  I knew I would have to study outside the classroom to pass this exam and all the hours invested paid off.  I hope to come down again next year for another class! -C.

I wanted to comment on the class: The content was excellent. My attempt the last year to learn the Risk Management Framework (RMF) from NIST was a little challenging to say the least. The class was very helpful in clarifying the RMF as well as some practical work on access and utilizing the NIST SP's, FIPS and other resources. With the advent of the new FISMA 2.0 signed last week, this class helped me prepare and explain to leadership what we need to do. The teacher was very knowledgeable as well. One thing I wanted to add was that the diversity of class members was also a positive in the learning process.

It was a great class. I am confident I would have never received the level of know how or the completely professional engagement as I received with Security University . It is without a doubt, I will continue to return to SU as my training resource. Office of Privacy, Information Protection and Data Security IRS.

I thought that the course was well structured. I am accustomed to shorter blocks of instruction with more short breaks; 50min/10min however, because of the level of knowledge and the skill of Ken's presentation, It worked great!

I CAN SAY THIS COURSE WAS REALLY A TREAT! KEN BROUGHT REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE TO THE CLASS AND HE HAS A WONDERFUL PERSONALITY. I REALLY ENJOYED THIS COURSE AND IF IN THE NEAR FUTURE I NEED CONTINUE EDUCATION COURSES I WOULD CONSIDER TAKING CLASSES AT THIS INSTALLATION.

Ken is an excellent instructor. His mix of humor and real world knowledge made learning fun and easy. I was amazed, all week, at the amount of knowledge that he possesses and how he was able to transfer that information to the class, and help us all understand the most complex of items. Great instructor!! Keep him around! BAH VA

Hi Sondra, (CEO Security University)
  I just thought I'd follow up with an even bigger thank you for the Security University CISSP® Prep/ iPad2 training program.   I know that even after having an audio training program in my car and having read the entire CISSP® book that I would not have passed without your program.   (This was reinforced by my lousy scores on the practice test)  Mr. Cutler was a great instructor and coupled with the iPad2 tools and SU e-book resources provided, review sheets, and the 11th hour guide Ken recommended, it all turned the trick.  You can add my name to your list of "Passed the first time" students.  Thanks again, Andy (ISC)2  -  ID number: 380646

Andy's email before he heard he passed the CISSP® exam..
Andy Manager, Enterprise Solutions-----Original Message----- From: Andy Sent: Friday, March 25, 2011 2:15 PM To: 's0ndra' Subject: Thanks for the Extra help

Hi Sondra,    I have to admit, I was looking at attending two other CISSP® training programs before I found out about Security University.  Both were a little more expensive, (one was a CISSP "Bootcamp" and the other was another well-known (ISC)2 program) but they didn't provide the level of support, an iPad2 with e-Study resources and assistance you did before during and even after the class was over.  Your support in ensuring I was working the right GIBill package along with links to their web page helped me to get the preapproval and in sending the paperwork for my claim; where the other companies just told me they were partially covered, but they didn't have any additional information.  ...

  I also appreciate the extra work you did to get us the latest iPadI and iPad2 replacement tools to support not only the class, but to take with us to support our future work.   You didn't have to make all of those extra trips to the Apple store, but I do appreciate it.  I look forward to being in another of your classes in the future. Thanks again for the great service. V/R Andy

Overall the class was excellent. Morrow Long had an obvious understanding of the tools used in the class. He provided demonstrations on how the tools are used and showed us potential attack scenarios. Morrow was very attentive to all class participants. My Information Security background is performing penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, and risk assessments. In the past four years I have also focused on program management, cyber policies, and governance. This class allowed me to sharpen and refine my technical skill set. I was challenged throughout the class. I felt that this class helped me increased my knowledge on ethical hacking and utilize some tools that I don't normally employ. Great experience. DOE

SU CWNA CWSP Class Training Feb 2011

The CWNA class was well worth the money and time spent. It filled in a lot of gaps and misconceptions on how wireless works. Tampa Gen Hosp.

First, let me say how much I enjoyed both courses.  Metka's knowledge is unbelievable.  It was a lot of material and at times my poor old brain got overloaded.  However, last night a sat down and took a couple of the sample test and I'm doing better than I did in class. FEMA

Overall it was a great opportunity. Much more then needed for what I am doing in the real world. I would have liked more opportunities to participate in class with hands on material or subjects. Some of the stretches just seem more like lecture and not actual instruction. While the course is vendor neutral I would suggest not spending so much time discussing the cons of specific vendors and using that time to be more interactive with the class. I thought the instructor was very knowledgeable and did a good job getting through the data. But might be more beneficial to the student to get them more involved and let them finish a thought prior to answer the question for them. By midway I just and others stop answering question. I would consider your training to others who want to grow in this area, I thought all in all the opportunity was rewarding. COMCAST

Just like the previous class, this class helps point out some things we are doing wrong on our current network and presents solutions. The labs were fun doing the “hacking” on wireless securities Salem State U

He is an outstanding instructor, he emulates the model for the type of instructor I want to have teaching me when I arrive at a Boot Camp. He is concerned about individuals learning the required materials and his instructional methods are key building blocks to pass the CISSP exam. Gabe

Thank you all for an exciting and challenging week of learning! I truly appreciate the test tips and will continue to use them, and the practice tests as I ready myself to successfully pass the exam on Sunday! :) SRA

SU Q/EH December 2010

Overall I had a wonderful experience. Entering the class, my background information security was varied, however in the past few years I focused more on program management, policy creation, and governance. While I originally got into the field performing highly technical functions that was no longer the case. This was a perfect course to once again sharpen my technical skill set. While it does provide an end to end process to perform penetration testing, it does allow its students to familiarize themselves with many of the best of breed tools used for ethical hacking, vulnerability assessments, and penetration testing. From day one to day five I was thoroughly challenged but not overwhelmed by the breadth and depth of the class. The instructor, Morrow Long, had an obvious understanding of the tools we used and provided great demonstrations on their use, as well as potential attack vectors. Morrow was very hands on and attentive to all class participants. On multiple occasions, he assisted me in overcoming a few stumbling points. The class focused on many of the popular vulnerabilities seen in today's world and showed the practical application of security resources to assist an organization in identifying those vulnerabilities, and understanding their impacts on organizations. Leaving the class I felt that I had increased my knowledge on ethical hacking tremendously. I cannot think of anything in particular that would have improved my experience at Q/EH - Alward - SME instructor

Clement more than met my expectations – I think he and I share the same frustration on the usefulness of much of this information – i.e. the CBK should be updated.

Q/SA® Q/PTL® Class Training April 2010

As an Army Information Systems Management (FA53) officer focusing on Cyber Defense, I've had the opportunity to train and certify in several IA/CND specific programs as well as work a myriad of Army Cyber Defense workforce training and development issues.

Having just recently completed the Security University (SU) Qualified Security Analyst (Q|SA) and Qualified Penetration Tester License (Q|PTL) courses I can confidently say that Sondra and her team have built an exceptional program of instruction; capturing the essential elements of security analysis and penetration testing methodologies and delivering them in a clear and concise format in a blended learning environment of lecture and hands-on practical skill development with scenario-based final examinations. SU training techniques are a perfect match for our military cyber defense workforce goals since they not only train the relevant concepts of cyber defense and its CND specialties but also in the case of Q|SA and Q|PTL courses challenge the students to apply those concepts in a "tactical" setting that an actual security analyst or penetration tester might see.

Security University's Q|SA / Q|PTL program of instruction is impressive and superior to some other training programs in several ways; one of them being the daily hands-on assessment of critical skills being taught. Another was the realistic practical final exam which included a penetration test with a final report that required some in-depth analysis of the resulting sets of data. I spent 30 post-course hours alone on analyzing the data and developing a 32 page report. That's definitely an experience you're not going to get through other training programs that teach a five day curriculum that's predominately lecture based. The Q|SA and Q|PTL courses also expose the students to a wide range of open and closed source automated tools for use in security analysis and penetration testing as well as the built-in assessment and exploitation capabilities of both Linux and Windows based operating systems. I honestly can't understand how we expect to conduct defense in depth across the GiG without our technical workforce understanding basic exploitation, which is exactly what's missing from many other approved certifications. SU equally balances this with methodology and analysis techniques rather than relying on specific toolsets since tools frequently change and are always subject to interpretation of their results.

Many leaders and managers in a resource constrained environment try to meet FISMA compliance by targeting those one-shot, many-kills certifications that are on the DoD 8570.01M chart with little regard for how relevant the training might be for certain 8570 categories. No better example can be given than the inclusion of CISSP as an IAT validating certification. Being a CISSP I can attest that it's a great certification for a security manager as it is wide and deep in several essential bodies of knowledge. But it will not enable a security technician, especially at the enclave level, to secure enterprise environments from a hands-on technical approach nor understand the threat and environment essential to effective defense in depth. Therefore it adds little value for an organization to have an IAT-III CISSP from a technical standpoint, but practically, that person can also fill other roles since CISSP covers everything from IAT-I through IAM-III. Hence, managers focus on CISSP and miss excellent training like Security University's programs.

Security University training should be a major part of any organization's information security training programs.

I don't think I would have been able to pass the CISSP without this class. It's very intense, and I appreciate the guidance from Clement on how to attack this exam and pass it. I also appreciate how real and down to earth Sondra is. I was able to call her on the phone and make this whole thing happen..

This has been a fantastic experience for me, and I look forward to working with you in the future for my IT training needs. Sondra, I can already tell CISSP Prep, Q/EH, Q/SA, and Q/PTL will be the best $7K investment I have ever made for my future.  Good luck with the 8570 certification!!  See you in 2 weeks.

thought that the class was excellent and the teacher was incredible. Metka Dragos certainly set a very high standard of excellence by which I will judge all future wireless experts. Her encyclopedic knowledge of Wi-Fi technologies was awe inspiring. She never hesitated when answering the most abstract questions in unbelievable detail from memory. Metka made a difficult subject understandable and interesting for both advanced professionals and new-comers to the field. I hope I have the opportunity to learn from her again.

Q/EH April 2009

I have over 20 years experience in both teaching and information security. I am very particular about both and highly concerned with the decline in real training revolving around the current challenges which we face. I was honestly impressed with both the level of expertise and the instructor's ability to relay this information to the students. This is not simply another idiot boot camp but a well reasoned and directed classroom experience which prepares the student for the real world. I was impressed with the hands-on exercises. These combined with the instructor's elevated knowledge base made the class enjoyable and extremely topical. When you compare Security University to other training groups in the region, they are infinitely superior in both talent and developmental materials.

I think that Security University has the right mindset in the development of their classes. They are working to impart valuable knowledge and not simply to push students through. Whereas, I believe that any student could pass any applicable exam after attending these courses, the test is not the focal point. They deserve to be commended for both their mindset and the efforts that they've made to enhance the knowledge-base of their students. I sincerely appreciate my time learning with Security University and would recommend it to any organization which actually wants to develop real IA professionals.

Anyways, I am about to submit the class evaluation because I did not get a chance to as of yet. As a testimony, upon returning to work and being even more knowledgeable of the subject areas that I learned in class, I was offered an advancement opportunity within my organization as a Certification and Accreditation Specialist. Again thanks for all the training that you have provided, it is been invaluable to me. > > Wishing you the best,

Yes you may quote me. This course was VERY worth while. Specifically the instructors experience made the course worthwhile. Just the study guide is worthless without an experienced instructor providing REAL - LIFE expertise and explaining material. Many of the slides and study materials are clearly NOT developed by professionals working in industry. It took someone with real-world experience, like Metka to provide outstanding instruction.

The labs were outstanding. Metka added additional labs beyond the course guide that truly helped to grasp complex topics. AB. US NAVY

6. How would you summarize the Q/EH class? (may we quote you?.){ yes }

____ Q/EH Course is the best training I have ever had in my career I am very much grateful that I was given the opportunity to attend such a training that had given me the knowledge and the skill to work with confidence when its related to “IT” security.__

5. How would you summarize the CWNA CWSP Bootcamp class ?___SU is the best class for CWNP, more tools, killer instructors and great materials beyond what CWNP brings to the classroom. the best.. Greg

CWSP April 2009

How would you summarize the CWSP Bootcamp class ? Overall training material was consistent with expectations. I believe Metka actually made the materials slightly better by interacting more than I've seen other instructors take the time to do. She also seemed to know the tools we used during the lab (analyzers, etc) very well.

"As a serious InfoSec Professional, dedicated to the continuous improvement of my skill set, I chose Security University's QFE (Qualified Forensics Expert) course to extend my capabilities in the Incident Response space which is the focus of current employment.
The fact that I chose to use vacation time and personal funding to attend SU's QFE course, and, still intend to attend future courses, should speak volumes about the quality of Security University's training (especially the caliber of their instructors)." Contractor

Q/SA Great material and excellent immersion material into the world of pen testing BAH

Q/WAD May 2008

This class provides an excellent framework to begin a career as a Professional Wireless Penetration Tester, or to add to your systems/networks defense knowledge.  Mr. Cardwell has given us a "complete approach" to penetration and defense:  showing us that in wireless networks, the wired side is as important (if not more) to ensure protection on as the wireless side.  This class was engaging, and Mr. Cardwell's vast experience certainly contributed to the value of the course.  I highly recommend this course and certification to anyone who has any wireless nodes on their network, and also to those who want to make sure that none pop up, unexpectedly.

I think that I am much better prepared now having taken this CISSP prep class than if I were to have studied on my own.

CWNA CWSP Bootcamp - June 2008
Security University’s CWNA class is extremely informative for both new and experienced persons. It teaches extremely important fundamentals of RF and regulations to gain CWNA certification. Metka, the instructor, was extremely knowledgeable and easily answered all of our questions and more. She gave very informative real-world scenarios from her own experience that wouldn’t be gained by self-study. I recommend taking this course to gain both CWNA certification and actual real-world knowledge of designing, deploying, implementing, and administrating wireless networks. Network Admin, Academy of Our Lady of Guam Guam..


CWNA CWSP Bootcamp - February 2008

This has actually been a very worthwhile class. I've learned a great deal of information, and it makes me think about the direction of my future learning and career path. I think there's a lot of information here that could benefit my company. The hard part is going to be determining what hardware/tools will be best to implement and convincing the company to spend the money to do it. Owens & Minor


QWAD Qualified Wireless Analyst & Defender- March 2008

I thought the class was very good very technical and definitely something for people with more than a basic background in the technology. Learned many tools and methods that can defeat your traditional Security measures, and can't help but make you a better security professional. Army


CWNA CWSP Bootcamp - February 2008

I found this to be a very good foundational course yet the material was way beyond introductory. Out of the many students, there was only one student that may have been ready to take the exam and have a good chance to pass. The class made me aware of what I did not know about the subject and gave me a good feel of what to expect and how to prepare for the exam. I have nothing but positive things to say about the instructor. She is a true subject matter expert and a real asset. Northrup Grumman


QSA/QPTL - January 2008

Yes. Pls quote me, The instructor was great, he was very knowledgeable. I had CEH and CHFI training from another vendor and I did receive certification but I wish I had attended your classes instead, I would have learned much more. America

Sondra, I just got back into the office for the holidays, and found your card waiting for me. I just wanted to say thank you, and thank you again for the great training that I received. I have since passed both CWNA and CWSP tests, and wouldn't have been able to do that without the great training from Kimberly and your company. Thanks again, and have a great new year. Jeff Cherpeski


CWNA CWSP Bootcamp - October 2007

As a whole, I enjoyed the class. I learned valuable troubleshooting techniques, such as packet and spectrum analysis, that I have yet to learn in other wireless classes. Kim also schooled us on multiple methods used by hackers to compromise wireless environments. This information will not only enable me to better administer my company's wireless network, but also protect my personal data while at home or in transit.

CWSP - August 2007

Good afternoon,

I took the CWSP class at the end of August in Reston VA , and really enjoyed it.  The real-world scenarios were helpful in understanding how it all works together and using the tools made all the difference.  Thanks for the great class.  I passed the CWSP this weekend and am now just waiting for it to go through the process before I can start using the cert.

Thanks again, Leigh -----------------------------------

You absolutely can use my comments regarding the class. I know without a shadow of a doubt that I would not have passed the exam had I not attended Security University. I had been studying every recommended CISSP book on and off for the last year and the class still taught me many things I did not know and helped me to put it all together. I recommend the class to anyone who is serious about passing the CISSP.

I have never worked so hard on a single exam in my life. As to the preparation in your CISSP course I wouldn't change a thing.  I believe the manner in which you cover the material and the material itself is appropriate. Kim did a good job preparing us for the exam and I feel you shouldn't change a thing.

Thanks for the support and all the helpful hints.  I don't think a person has a clue how tough the exam really is until they sit for it.

Not only were the SU classes informative and in depth - once I was back to work, I was able to immediately identify gaps in our processes we have in place, and identify and mitigate security risks on servers and applications.  I highly recommend the ECSA\LPT class from Security University for anyone interested in security and penetration testing.  I'll be back to Security University to finish my QISP as soon as I can.

USAF CEH class San Antonio TX - Dec 2006

The SU CEH materials used in class were excellent! We received all the CEH training material one week prior to class, and were told to read all materials before class. That along with an extremely knowledgeable instructor made the a big difference from other training companies. We will use SU again. 99% of the class passed the CEH test. Thank you.

Thank you Sondra for recommending this class! I have gained much needed Security Testing skill set from the top professional (Morrow Long) and am now ready to start my new career as QA/Tester.

..as feedback to the EC-Council, the test and related materials are in severe need of updating and proofreading. As far as the class itself, regardless of the EC-Council's goals, I would like to be able to say, “Since I took the class from SU, I am a good thorough tester,” not just that I passed the test.

Also it was great to see how the penetration testing is performed from start to finish even how the reports should look.

CEH class wish- McLean Va

Hi Sondra,

Peter Black here, again.. I wish I could turn back time and take the CEH class with SU instead of where I took it. By far, SU has more experienced instructors, more equipment and more labs than any place, your instructors and materials really makes a difference. Thank you for working hard, the ECSA class was excellent!


CWNA & CWSP Bootcamp

Hi, just a quick note to say thanks for all the help.  I passed the CWNA exam with an 80% and could not have done this with the book and practice test alone.  I'm scheduling the CWSP exam for this Tuesday. I'll let you know how it goes... Have a good weekend.... -Greg

hey all, passed the CWSP with an 80% also, guess that's my lucky number.. could not have done it without the escalating workshops, labs and all the great wireless equipment and extra demos of tools I never imagined to help our wireless network. Thank you!


CEH class - Rome Italy, March 27-31 *18 new CEH certificates!*

Hi Sondra, During CEH course I realized I absolutely need to take another course : the CUSW (Certified Underground Secure Woman).

Anyway, the course had really changed me. Though I use a router/modem  (closed by default), I've never think to secure my personal Lan/wan, more then it did. At home and at work now I installed an IDS and a good spyware, and often I check for any strange process in Task Manager... . my brother thinks I'm going mad :-) Sabrina


ECSA Anti-Hacking for Network Penetration Testing Class 3/06

I just wanted to say this was an excellent class. Learning was enjoyable and the instructor really knew her stuff. We started out with general information and moved on to more advanced topics and soon we were hacking alright.

Now I know many of you out there are saying, I have read a lot of testimonials and who knows if they are lying. Let me tell you, Security University knows their stuff for a fact and I am telling if you are deciding between SU and a competition you just have to give SU a try to understand what I am saying.

Anti-Hacking for Network Penetration Testing Class

Hey Sondra,
1st day worth the price of admission, received more information first day than just "Pen Testing. The best was networking and meeting other students with diverse security backgrounds/jobs. Web based would be great or on-site with a controlled network, but you have to have the freedom to try all these great tools with sacrificial computers - free from worry!  Great Class can't wait to take another! Thanks!

If my company's computer security department could all have this training our core competency would be way up! Thanks again!

PKI Testimonial

I just came from taking the PKI Training class from November 26-30 session. I am so glad you brought this class to Booz Allen. I knew a fair amount of PKI from college but not in real detail as some other members in my class. The current contract I work on does not involve PKI but all three of my supervisors are so PLEASED with the information & knowledge I have brought back to them. They actually see many marketing abilities for our area in Defense and I might get a chance to work with NST. One thing for sure it has definitely opened my career doors here at BAH.

Sondra Schneider, our professor was superb. What amazed me was how much knowledge and experience she brought to the class. She was helpful and most of all patient!!! I emphasize patience because you have a lot of Level-3's who propose a lot of challenges during a class. As a recent college graduate I am the first to inform you how important it is to have a good professor. As I recommended to Sondra earlier you might want to consider having her teach each one of her session for more then just a week but for two. Thanks again!!!!!

Ultimate Penetration Testing Testimonial
Dear Sondra,
I’m writing this letter to inform you of my extreme satisfaction with the Ultimate Penetration Testing class that I recently took from Security University. I’ve been involved in network security for the past few years and have taken security related classes from other vendors, including MIS Training Institute and Learning Tree, and the class from Security University was hands down the best I’ve taken. The instructor was very knowledgeable on the subject matter, the course was well organized, and when it said it was a “hands-on” course it really meant it. The courses I’ve taken from other vendors were either all presentation or a “hands-on” lab on the last day. This course had one to two labs every day that reinforced the material covered in the presentation portion of the class. I feel this class gave me the knowledge and skills necessary to address the security needs of my company, and was definitely worth the money. I would highly recommend this course to anyone else and look forward to taking more classes from Security University in the future.

Sondra, I attended your presentation on "Life After Passwords" last week at the Phoenix ISACA meeting. I just wanted to let you know that I thought your presentation and the content were extremely well done. You obviously know your subject very well. Thanks too for your comments at our table during lunch regarding some of my audit concerns at General Dynamics.

PKI EXPOSED Testimonial

I just attended the January session. I wanted to send a quick email regarding the quality of the course in accordance with evaluation, future recommendations, etc...I thought the class was an excellent introduction for those people who have not previously had much experience with the PKI. I went from very little knowledge to what I consider a fairly comprehensive understanding of the subject in a short time. I have to say that by preparing for the test, I feel that the knowledge I gained will not be forgotten easily (unlike the material in some training courses).

Sondra was an excellent instructor. Not only did she have a great understanding of the subject, but her experience with PKI was very valuable when discussing certain issues. The class was not just a boring lecture for 8 hours a day.I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about learning. She was also very sincere and helpful about answering any questions that came up. I usually don't write emails like this, but I feel it is necessary to express opinions when a class is either extremely good or extremely bad. In this case, I feel that the class was definitely on the extremely good side...

Ultimate Penetration Testing Testimonial
Hello!
I attended the Security University penetration testing class that was held at the Orlando SANS conference during the second week of December. This was an outstanding class and well worth the price! I went into this class with very high expectations as I have already attended SANS training before and have become familiar with what they have to offer. This class met and surpassed all expectations.

The instructor was not only very proficient in understanding the subject matter himself, but he was also very capable of teaching it. I just wanted to take this opportunity to share my opinion with a fellow Booz Allen employee who is apparently in a position to bring more of this training to our company. I highly recommend it!

Regards,
Ralph
 
Certified Wireless Network Administrator Testimonial

My job involves making wireless technology available to an entire county of 265,700.  I did not have a lot of time to investigate the different wireless products so I sought out a one stop training environment in which I would have the opportunity to learn most in the least amount of time.  Your CWNA & CWSP classes allow me to accomplish my goals.  I have learned more from this training than any other training or work experience that I have had on Wireless technology. I was not able to just sit back and listen, the instructor made me learn. I needed it!

Certified Wireless Bootcamp Testimonial

Testimonial: What can I say? But "phenomenal". The in-depth instruction and sound practical applications taught where given utilizing nothing but the top vendors equipment. Security University's CWNA/CWSP classes are highly recommended for experts and novices. Even if you think you know "Wireless" , the information you gain is first class and prepares you for certification. As the demand for technically proficient WIFI managers grows, Security University will be the cutting edge provider of training for all IT personnel regardless of specialization.

Security Architecture Testimonial

The Applied Security Architecture was a very interesting and informative class. The first day, when I found out that everyone else in the class was working issues with this subject on a daily basis, I thought I had made a mistake in attending. As a technical manager who spends most of my time doing management rather than technical activities. However, as the class progressed I found it very interesting and enjoyable, if challenging. The exercises really helped me to see what was being discussed and gave me a blueprint for working my issues.

When I returned to the job I was able to use the class examples and discussions to address the hardware and software requirements for a security lab that I had been trying to get established for four years. This 3-day class brings the whole network together and delivers a secure infrastructure. Students leave class with templates for best practices and hands-on case studies for an effective information security architecture framework."
