Hi,

I was just wondering if any of you had any advice on what the best boot camp is for Pen Testing or CISSP? I was looking at trainingcamp.com for CompTIA Pentest+ and also CISSP but I have heard some negative feedback on Trainingcamp.com . Thanks

    For penetration testing, go with eLearnSecurity's Junior Penetration Tester training.

    If price were no concern, I'd take a serious look at the SANS course for CISSP.

    Wow, 7K
    Yoba, is it worth that price?
    Even if so, can anyone else recommend a CISSP alternative?

    Do you mean alternative source of training or alternative certification?

    The CISSP training on Cybrary is free. It's also very high quality.

    A boot camp for CISSP is a waste of money. Your basically paying someone $2500 or higher to read a CISSP book out loud to you. You are not going to learn anything new that you can't learn on your own from reading any of the available training materials out in book stores for under $100.

    As far as pentesting is concerned, find a vendor that can provide you hours of lab time because you'll need to perform hands-on rather than reading a book. Someone mentioned eLearnSecurity and they're pretty good.
