What students have said about our programs

Alston Sanford

My experience with Cyber Brain Academy has been nothing short of absolutely outstanding! I am an active duty service member and used the Army Credentialing Assistance program to request exam vouchers for CISM and CRISC. Victor, CEO of Cyber Brain Academy, reached out to me via email and worked with me personally. The whole process was stress-free and a very pleasant experience. I would highly recommend working with Cyber Brain Academy if you are a service member using the Credentialing Assistance program. Thank you, Victor!

Highly recommend. Cyber Brain Academy provided the tools and guidance I needed to pass my ISACA Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) test on the first try after only 2.5 weeks of study. They helped me to not only understand the material, but to change my own understanding and thinking so I could embrace information security and management from the business perspective.

I highly recommend Cyber Brain Academy live boot camp for the CISM certification or any certification. As we were covering domains, Victor made sure that I understood the material and provide multiple resources and real world examples that I could relate too. My next certification, I'II definitely go through Cyber Brain Academy.
