‘ZDNet Recommends’ What exactly does that mean?

ZDNet’s recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of YOU, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form

And you can walk right into elite positions once you finish "Certified Cloud Security Professional: CCSP," "CISM: Certified Information Security Manager," "CompTIA CSA+ & Certified Cyber Security Analyst," and "CISA: Certified Information Systems Auditor."

Mohamed Atef, the instructor for all of the courses in this bundle, is an author, Senior Penetration tester, and ICT Consultant. He has over 20 years of experience as a certified instructor of both academic and professional training. 

Students have been very happy with his courses. Verified purchaser Paul S. gave it a perfect 5-star rating, saying "Cannot beat this for the price. You can get to make all of your own tools and labs. Just as described. You don't even have to have any previous knowledge."
