Program participation
The entire program’s course will be made available on the 13th of August 2018, and you can choose to go through the courseware at your own pace or select the option to actively participate in the program when you log in. Choosing to participate in the program will give potential employers access to your program progress and scores. You can change this option at any time.
Protecting your privacy is a very serious issue to us here at InfoSec Addicts.  If you choose to participate in the program instead of just taking the courses potential employers will be able to see your first name, last initial, program progress, quiz scores, and final exam score. No potential employer or recruiter will be given access to your full name, phone number. or email address without your consent for each.
None of the potential DoD contracting firms will submit you for a clearance. If you decide to disclose your contact information to a potential employer, you must discuss security clearance with them NOT InfoSec Addicts.
