Here's what some of our students are saying about Foundstone classes:

"One of the most in-depth technical courses I have ever taken. The vulnerabilities will scare you!"

"A rude awakening for most IT professionals, eye-opening, shocking...You’ll go home wondering how your network has survived thus far."

"This class will immediately impact our processes and procedures. It has definitely been worth the time and effort."

"Foundstone definitely provides you with clear details on how to use the tools and methodology behind hacking."

"This was an amazing course. It was very current with the industry, as well as underground trends."

"This was the most intense but, at the same time, the most informative class I've attended in quite some time! Well done! I had a great time and am looking forward to my next class."

"This was a very impressive course, predominantly due to the skill and presentation of the instructors. Arguably, the most applicable course to our everyday workload that I have ever attended."

"The instructors were very friendly, and kept the discussions lively, timely, and interesting. Their depth and breath of knowledge was most appropriate, and they were able to 'talk-tech' to people of my experience level, as well as speak at the level of the participants that did not have as deep a technical background. Great job overall, and thank you for allowing me to attend this class."

"This course really opened my eyes, and has made me a much more valuable security engineer."

"The instructors are very knowledgeable, and they presented the topics in an easy-to-understand manner. They are a great team and represent Foundstone well."

"I honestly believe this is the best course I’ve attended. It was worth every penny."

"The instructor was knowledgeable, well-organized, responsive to questions, and detail-oriented. He served as the epitome of what I expected from such a reputable company like Foundstone."

"Security awareness is so important. Foundstone is doing an excellent job in this area and I hope that they continue to do so. Courses that are run by Foundstone are an excellent way to replicate this mindset and knowledge out to everyone. Keep it up!"

"Excellent class! Well organized and planned. This is the first time the labs in such a class are actually worthwhile and the team teaching technique is what made it work well."

"I was impressed with the instructor's knowledge and experience — it came through loud and clear in the training. Being a member of law enforcement, I appreciated the fact that my perspective was kept in mind during the class. I thought the labs were very good — they definitely brought everything together into a real-world type of scenario. Overall I was very satisfied. This is the kind of thing we need to know to be effective at our jobs. I hope to get more opportunities to meet and learn from your staff in the future."

"I thought the class was great, and the instructors were great as well. They were obviously very smart and leaders in their fields. I thought the labs were good. They were real enough so that all the facets of the lab exercises made sense, and it was not as if all 'evidence' was made up and didn’t work together. It was a great class for law enforcement incident response."
