One thing to watch out for is something Foundstone did at one point.  They
took note of the companies from which everyone came, and eventually ran a
rather large advertisement which named every company that in any way
competed with them, which further insinuated that these companies only knew
what they knew from attending Foundstone training.  I know this because the
company I worked for at the time was named; one of our people had attended a
seminar out of curiosity (he was let go as a result).

Hi all,
I've just been adding a few more ethical hacking training 
providers to the site at  
http://www.securitywizardry.com/hacking.htm > the site now has 
details on 23 such courses and their numbers are increasing 
all the time.

I'm looking for articles or advice, not on ethical hacking 
but what a potential student should look for in such a course 
and pitfalls to avoid. Apart from "don't bother, buy a book" ;o)

I've recently added some new offerings from 7Safe, 
Net-Security Training who used to provide Verisign courses and Lever.

The Sensepost site from South Africa seems to be down does 
anyone know what has become of them and whether this is a 
temporary glitch or if yet another provider has gone down the pan?

The best I've heard of yet, was the suggestion to hold the 
course during a Caribbean cruise!! The courses are heavy 
enough without hangovers and sea sickness to worry about, 
also imagine justifying it to the boss!!  I didn't post that 
one on the site.

Any details on other courses that I'm missing are always 
welcome, especially outside the UK or USA which seem to be 
the most prolific at the moment.

take care
