InfoSect Training Demographics for 2021

InfoSect is an Australian based training computer security company that started in 2016, offering professional training from the end of 2018. 

In 2021 we had the following courses on offer:

  • Reverse Engineering
  • Code Review
  • Linux Heap Exploitation
  • Browser (JS Engine) Exploitation
  • IoT Security
InfoSect teaches both in-person (COVID-19 permitting) and live, interactive online training options and keeps low class sizes.  

The following are the demographics of our course offerings for 2021 taken from course booking details and post-course surveys.

Geography

InfoSect was traditionally a local training company, but opened itself up to International training in 2020 when we began offering live, online training delivery. In 2021 InfoSect's overseas' students made up just under 20% of its trainings. 

The below graph shows a breakdown of the continent the students were located. It is apparent that we are still primarily an Australian training company.

Delivery Format

In 2020 InfoSect began offering online training due to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions. This made up almost the entire offering for 2020. In 2021 we've seen a slow return to face-to-face training. Still over 75% of our trainings ofr 2021 were delivered online.

Job Title*

After every course students were given an optional survey to fill in, with an optional, open-ended question on Job Title. Below are indicative of the types of people that came and attended InfoSect training in 2021.

Qualifications

We were interested in prior qualifications of students before attending InfoSect training. Below are the answers given on our survey form.

3 Year Training Growth

The following graph shows the number of students we have trained for the past 3 years as a percentage of total.

This growth has been organic without any budget allocated to sales or marketing for InfoSect. At the end of 2021 we have 7 staff working at InfoSect, all technical practioners.

Thank you to our customers and colleagues for a wonderful year of training and development in the infosec community. We hope to continue delivering the same quality of training based on real, modern research into the future.

*Only 35% of students filled in details of their Job Title and Qualifications on the post-course surveys
