Trainer covered a lot of ground over a relatively short period.

I found it very interesting to learn all about what happens behind the scenes when it comes to IT systems. I also enjoyed learning about security and what hackers do as ethical hacking is an avenue I'm very keen in pursuing.

Very knowledgeable trainer, was able to adjust to audience knowledge, excellent industry experience and ability to relate to audience needs Excellent content preparation , tailored to needs discussed beforehand. Good supplement reading materials prepared by trainer

Oliver Steinig - Bosch

Ron was very mindful of his audience and addressed everyone's questions. He checked his audience for clarity and was willing to spend the time to review a topic until everyone understood the topic. He gauged the audience for energy levels and suggested a break when he saw that the energy from the group was waning. This was much appreciated.


The pace of training delivery.

Ian McInally - KnowledgePool

the exercises and group discussions.


The trainer was very knowledgeable and was happy to go at the pace of the attendees. He was polite and respectful to all those in attendance. I felt I learnt a lot from the course as the trainer was very succinct in his delivery when going through the PP slides. A really good, worth while course from my personal point of view.

Julie Price - KnowledgePool

The environment was really relaxed and open so everyone could ask questions or put across points of view or experience. David the trainer was a SME on the subject and his style was very good.




The example and exercise


I got more information regarding the web applications' security issues, the different tools that could be used to cope with these issues, and more advice from the trainer to handle all these issues.


the list of tools


how it was broken into the technical and security mindset aspects.




he is very knowledgeable and comprehensive.


Matthew was very knowledge and has lot experience to share with us. it was very pleasant, as he take the time to listen to us and answer to our questions. Thank you Matthew, it was awesome.


The second day, scenarios exercises.

Christina Hutchings - KnowledgePool

The real life examples Ron gave.


I liked the trainer's introduction and anecdotes to make the learning more real


David's in depth knowledge. His relationship building skills with the audience. I really enjoyed the way he managed to make us (as a collective audience) enjoy the quite dry and uninteresing subject matter. He had anecdotes and knowledge of specific examples of security failings - hacker attacks - BCP 'breakdowns' etc which put flesh on the bones to the piece of legislation or 'best practice' for BCP that he was trying to teach us about. A really engaging, down to earth and personable man: A very good listener and a fabulous, charismatic trainer.

He took his time to make sure everyone understood and were on the same wave length

Tina Hopkins - Capita Business Services Ltd

I found the training too in depth for IT beginners. There was too many high level subjects that i felt were too advanced for a beginner level.
