For the most part, I teach live classes. But I’ve used and reviewed many online school platforms (yes, including the obvious ones). Udemy and the like offer some excellent materials – and some not-so-exellent – but there are full-on universities online too, that offer real degrees, as well as the many certification organizations and trainers. This list isn’t an endorsement of any of these, but unless I see real value, providers don’t make this list.
Not primarily a training site, Cyber Degrees is a great resource for people looking for the right degree or certification to advance their careers. They offer school listings, descriptions of career paths and degrees and a ton of useful resources. If you’re considering online education, start right here and know the field before you spend a dime. Highly recommended.

During my time as Project Manager of Hacker Highschool (2012-2016) I had the opportunity to write articles for several security publications. This article, “Interactions, Trust, and Google Chrome”, appeared on January 14, 2016, and looked at the obvious and not-so-obvious trusts we give Google and interactions we allow with them.
I’m not a Google Hater; in fact I find their tools really useful in my consulting work. But I’m very cautious about sharing certain things, for instance my wifi network passwords. Check it out for a fuller discussion.
