Training Testimonial

Tranchulas provided a professionally run, hands-on technical training course – Ethical Hacking and Penetration testing. The course was outstanding and gave real practical insights and examples of the skills and tools required by professional penetration testers. Tranchulas CEO Zubair Khan, who’s technical background and knowledge of the security industry is second to none, presented the course in an efficient and structured manner. Lots of interesting insights and anecdotes were added from his experience around the globe working with a variety of industries and governments. Plenty of hands-on exercises were provided to allow course participants to really learn and understand the content being delivered. I thoroughly recommend Tranchulas and the course to anyone interested in developing and honing their skills in information security and penetration testing.Mark Brown, British Airways
