I'm a repeat offender at Jeff's courses, having already attended CISA, CISSP and CRISC courses. Jeff is an engaging teacher and bring numerous examples from real life. Class size is limited, so there is always time for questions. I'm planning on attacking CISM next year and will certainly be knocking once again on Jeff's door. Highly recommended !

-Liz O'Sullivan, Bundesamt für Informatik und Telekommunication BIT, Head of Security

"The PECB GDPR CDPO Certification training I successfully completed is very different from trainings provided by other institutes. ACTAGIS goes much further by providing real insight in how the application of GDPR works for your company in day-to-day life and how it interacts with ISO standards. The training absolutely exceeded my expectations."
