About Us


We’re About Skills That Matter

We've made it our personal mission to transfer our knowledge and experience in cyber security to our growing community of security professionals, by teaching them practical security skills that matter to their career.

Skills That Matter Solve Problems

Skills that matter are solutions to problems.  I’m not talking about know how use this tool, that tool, or run some kind of script.  I’m talking about something much bigger than that.  

There is a saying I find very motivational when it comes to cyber security.  Here it is:  “Amateurs worry about ego...pros focus on results.”

You see, when you work in this business you cannot focus on learning things just because they are impressive.  No matter what they are.  Pros solve problems.  Pros focus on making their organization successful, not trying to impress people with the aimless “skills” taught online.    

When you have the skills that solve those problems, you have skills that matter.  And, companies will often pay well you for them.  

The Problem With Most Training

After taking MANY, MANY different training courses ourselves, we realized that so many of these courses miss the mark when it comes to ACTUAL skills and capabilities that can be used in the field.  It all seemed to be the same.  Whether it was networking, project management, or cyber security...  

It was just hours and hours of information...but nothing we could really use at work.  

No one took the time to truly explain the concepts and the application.  What we needed was knowledge and skills that made us better at our jobs, not more bullet points on a slide.  Or, they tried to cram a TON of information into a 5 day period, which was just overwhelming.  

None of this created a lasting change in our knowledge or skill level.  

We Strive To Make A Difference...

Since 2015, we’ve worked with thousands of students in over 80 different countries.  And, their results have been nothing short of humbling, and amazing.  This is why we do what we do...

" I feel like I can really do this!"

"When someone told me to consider cybersecurity because it's an industry that's not going away anywhere plus I can learn and pave my way in through certifications even coming from a non-STEM background, that sounded fantastic but I still didn't want to even begin trying for a certification without even understanding what the job really was. 

I watched many YouTube videos but no one was putting all the information down in a clear, concise narrative like Mr. Brandon did and for the first time, I feel like I can really do this and I can't thank him enough. 

Highly recommend you start here if you are as overwhelmed as I was by how much there is to learn and with no clue how to go about learning.

I am so grateful I found this incredibly well-structured course and it's made me so exciting and motivated to keep going!"

Started Security From Scratch


"When I failed the CISSP exam, I was demoralized to start studying again, because I didn't know where to begin and how to come up with a study approach, then I found Brandon's CISSP course. 

Brandon's course is designed to help you understand the CISSP domains and pass the CISSP exam. When I failed the first time, I knew I was missing something. 

The live classes are AMAZING!!!  The daily CISSP practice questions and quizzes were very helpful. I am not talking about 1 line question, I am talking about questions you have to dissect, look for the keywords in order to get the correct answer.

The ratings on here speak for themselves. I highly recommend this course if you are serious about passing the CISSP exam."
