About InfoSec Institute

InfoSec Institute was founded in 1998 by an expert team of information security instructors. Their goal was to build a business by offering the best possible training experience for students. We felt that by providing the best possible hands on training, the most practical for today’s demanding workplace requirements, that the business would grow by leaps and bounds. This original assumption proved true. InfoSec Institute has trained over 15,000 individuals. Unlike other training companies that have been founded by non-technical business persons, InfoSec Institute deeply understands the needs of today’s IT professionals and is best positioned to offer world class training.

InfoSec Institute is an equal opportunity employer.
