If you’re new to the security field, consider the CompTIA Security+ certification as your cybersecurity starting point. I’ll help you learn how to quickly get certified as a Security+ professional by providing you with access to the best study resources and coaching.


If you have a few years of experience under your belt, the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) is the gold standard for cybersecurity experts. I’ll guide you through the best CISSP study resources, week-by-week, until you’re ready to pass the CISSP exam!


If you’re looking to move your career along the cybersecurity management track, the Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) certification is a great credential to add to your resume. My CISM preparation program will get you started on the path to success!


If you’d like to become a cybersecurity generalist and have at least a year of experience, the Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) certification covers a wide breadth of security topics. I’ll help you prepare for the exam as quickly as possible.


If you’re planning on pursuing the cybersecurity technical track, the CompTIA Cybersecurity Analyst+ (CySA+) certification is a great intermediate-level certification. I’ll give you the knowledge you need to quickly earn your CySA+ certification.


Are you seeking to become an ethical hacker? CompTIA’s Penetration Tester+ (PenTest+) certification will help you become a penetration tester. My study group will get you started quickly!
