Insights into

McAfee Institute

Enhancing Law Enforcement Training: Insights from an Academy Director
As a law enforcement leader, instructor, and academy director, I have used several of McAfee Institute's training products to develop internal trainings, support policy development, enhance situational awareness for event security, threat identification and assessment, emergency/critical incident response, intelligence, and investigations. I am extremely impressed with the academic rigor McAfee Institute employs in their research and curriculum development, as well as the caliber of their instructors.They have worked with and provided training for agencies like the NYPD, and I am exploring hosting possibilities for my academy and other NYC partner agencies. As a chief, I prefer my officers to have certifications from accredited sources to support credibility and public trust. I recommend comparing your state's POST standards with the courses you're interested in. Having led private sector security and emergency management, I can attest that McAfee Institute's cybersecurity-based certifications and degrees are in demand.

From Law Enforcement to Consulting: How McAfee Institute Transformed My Career
During my time in law enforcement, I used techniques from McAfee Institute's programs to track down a human trafficker, starting with just a Snapchat username. Now, as the owner/operator of an investigation and security consulting company, the knowledge and skills developed through McAfee Institute have helped me with various cases, such as cyber stalking, sextortion, fraud, and locating missing persons.For example, the Certified Expert in Cyber Investigations (CECI) program includes approximately 100 hours of training. I have lifetime access to all updates to the curriculum, unlike other certification groups that require payment for updates. Additionally, McAfee Institute's programs require research, writing, or demonstrated application of the materials to progress. I still use my work from these programs as "proof of concept" when meeting with clients.

From Intelligence to Private Sector: Why McAfee Institute is My Go-To for Training
After nearly 20 years in the US Intelligence Community as an operator and instructor, I sought certification and education that met my needs in the private sector. McAfee Institute came highly recommended in the private sector and partnered with several federal agencies for training. I hold several of their certifications and now serve on their governing board (without compensation, driven by a dedication to developing skills).One of our strengths is the diverse backgrounds of our instructors and course creators. They regularly review and enhance each other's course material. Josh McAfee keeps the curriculum updated with new and interesting content. I believe in these programs so much that I am dedicating budget to sending coworkers through the OSINT course ladder to enhance their basic analysis skills and beyond.

Unmatched Value and Engagement: My Journey with McAfee Institute
I am happy to share my positive experiences with the McAfee Institute. I obtained the Workplace Violence and Threat Specialist Certification, which was very well done, engaging, and educational. My former Department of Defense agency and my Army profession also saw tremendous value in this certification and other programs offered by McAfee Institute.The program was comprehensive and a great value. I am currently completing the Certified Executive Leadership program and plan to pursue the Open Source program next. The McAfee Institute has been a great organization with professional and responsive leadership and team members.I hope you find this helpful. I've had a great experience with the organization.
