What fellow Cisco Employees have to say…

Mindblowing!! If you are a traditional security architect, tip-toeing around the DevOps/CICD buzzwords, get into SEC540, which gets you into the depths of DevSecOps and sets you up for the future!!
I would recommend SEC537 to any blue team member, as learning how to automate and leverage OSINT are huge to the blue team tool set. The content and labs are awesome, and the instructor added real-world experiences.
FOR585 is the best mobile forensics course I have ever taken. You're drinking from a fire hose every day, but now you're one step ahead of the bad guys.
I started SEC488 with nearly no knowledge of cloud services, and now I am all pumped up to try out what I've learned!
If you want to be good at something, find the best there is at the topic and learn from them. I feel very privileged to be able to learn this content from Rob Lee. He is just amazing!
