"After taking the entire course, I can confidently state that it far exceeds the quality and breath of any insider threat training course which I have seen during my career. This course should be mandatory for any company serious about cyber security. The real world examples of social engineering will open your eyes to the vulnerabilities of your company but Peter will teach you the tools needed to thwart an adversary.“
