What People Are Saying
Since I earned my CertNexus badge, I became more visible and attractive to a lot of recruiters. I was able to gain employment with an organisation that is data based which I absolutely love. I would recommend CertNexus over and over again.
The questions are really well-crafted to test not only our knowledge but hands-on experiences with certain tools. This certification gave me more confidences in handling cyber security incidents.
