  • JW says:

    Hi Nathan,

    I purchased one of your courses, some time ago (1/22/17), but never completed it. The content I did view was freaking amazing and I do plan to go back to it. One thing I never asked though – Would one learn enough from your courses to start a consultancy as you do, or would you recommend one to find a job first? The cyber security industry should be grateful they have someone like you providing such high quality training. Thanks Nathan!

    Onward and Upward,
    J.W.

    Onward and Upward,
