What CQURE Academy Students say

Milan Racko

IT Security Specialist

AWSC18 helped me to better understand what are the security risks, how to identify them and how to protect against them primary in Microsoft on premise and cloud environments. I earned valuable knowledge and also it helped me to develop our security department in my team. I am looking forward for another courses from CQURE Academy.

Jack Perry

Security Principal Consultant | Presidio

All of their classes are based on their real world experience with the products, not just the typical Official Curriculum style classes that teach you things for an exam, but that you will never use. You’ll find that all of the material you’ll learn in the class will be used, at some point, in your security career.

Martin Weber

CTO | IT.innovation.4U GmbH

Totally professional, total great stuff, in-depth knowledge and a perfect Learning Atmosphere! I like it! Thanks so much for sharing your experience and knowledge!

Marek Chmel

SQL Server DBA | AT&T

All of their classes are based on their real world experience with the products, not just the typical Official Curriculum style classes that teach you things for an exam, but that you will never use. You’ll find that all of the material you’ll learn in the on-premise will be used, at some point, in your security career.

Paweł Partyka

Azure Security Infrastructure Consultant | Microsoft

During AWSC course I have learned about various attack techniques against credentials, secrets and Windows OS. I also obtained knowledge on mitigation possibilities. The course help me to have more confidence in my cyber security skills and have more meaningful discussion about the threats with my customers.

Doru-Catalin Togea

Information Security Advisor | Norwegian Police

As it also happened before, Paula Januszkiewicz knows how to blow your mind. As great athletes make their discipline look easy when you watch them perform, so Paula makes Windows purr like a little kitten. Even though I am fully aware of how much I still don’t know, after a course such as this Windows is not mysterious anymore. This is a great feeling.

Kamil Więcek

IT Expert | ING Bank Śląski

I’ve recently attended a training held by CQURE. It was PACKED with knowledge and tools. Of course another course not everything was discussed in details (lack of time)on-premise but CQURE team delivered a great value within just a few hours. I was a student not so long ago and I wish that our universities were teaching as efficiently as CQURE does.

Styrk Finne

We have learned a lot about IIS, hacking and much much more. Our motivation has increased during this course and of course great interest in your work Paula. Impressed with your enthusiastic energic way of presenting.
