Our mission is to provide the most thorough and informative review of the top Information Security training courses available in a simple and digestible format. There are so many sources for information on the internet that it can get overwhelming sifting through it all, that’s where Crush the InfoSec Exams comes in.
Why We Exist
No two students are alike, have the same strengths, same weaknesses, same interests. Which is why no two students might like the same learning method. For example, some people are visual learners (reading a book or watching a video) vs. tactile learners (have to feel and touch).
Crush the InfoSec started from a simple realization that it was hard to decipher which test prep courses were a good fit for students. Because of this, there was great demand for a resource that students could use to compare courses and learn from experts in the field of professional test prep courses. With the lack of information on the internet that provided a solid review of Information Security training online, Crush the InfoSec Exam was born.
James Edge graduated from Southern New Hampshire University in 2015. Upon receiving his M.B.A, he began working in the test prep industry, reviewing and analyzing major providers of test prep tools and services. It didn’t take long for him to realize that IT certifications were not straightforward for people who had never taken them before, and unlike the rest of the test prep industry (non-IT), there wasn’t much useful and straightforward information.
With his knowledge and experience in reviewing online training course curriculums, James began digging and laying the ground work for what is Crush the InfoSec today, a simple and logical guide from beginning to end. As simple as step 1, 2, 3!
What We Provide
Crush the InfoSec Exams was built around simplicity and straightforward communication to readers. Keeping the process to only 3 steps makes the path to furthering the IT certification journey simple. The result, keeping what would be frustrated IT students, motivated to move on to the next step and ultimately getting your certification.
For many students, the mere research process of picking a training course is too complex and conflicting based on who you talk to. Compounded by IT students’ already very busy schedule, it ends up being information overload. James recognized this very quickly after getting into the industry and saw an opportunity to help information security students get the information they want, easily and reliably.
Comparison charts are a huge part of Crush the InfoSec’s mission, this simple format lays out all the big picture information quickly, perfect for busy security students who can appreciate distilled information.
One complaint IT students had, was lack of direct comparison reviews between two courses. Students are not able, nor have the time to trial two separate courses to make a final decision on an expensive purchase.
Crush the InfoSec provides students with articles detailing pros and cons to some of the most popular courses, for example our CISSP training certification is one of our most desired and utilized comparisons.
Crush the InfoSec Exams not only provides a step-by-step process for passing the CISA, CRISC, CISM. CISSP, but it also provides detailed comparisons of all the aspects that matter most to students. Simply displayed in the course chart, students are easily able to glance at the big points.
Our detailed individual course pages give prospective test takers the latest information on the pros and cons to each, what is a reasonable price to pay, what kind of student would benefit from the course and other great little pieces of info.

No matter what stage in the test taking process students are in, Crush the InfoSec Exams has a resource for it.
