Ferdinand has a legal background, but teaches Security, Auditing and Privacy. According to him, all information should be based on “evidence”. His favorite questions are: How do you know that? And why do you think that? Occam’s razor and evidence are fundamental to working in the security and auditing fields. And how do we know what we know? (Epistemological discussions are always welcome at Ferdinand)

Knowledge and experience are good to have, but not enough. Certifications are important. Ferdinand gives you the knowledge you need to pass your exams at once without stress.
