Cybersecurity teachers out there?

Hi guys

I want to do a course in Cybersecurity with someone who knows their stuff backwards and whom I could learn a lot from from their teaching.  I'm a member of Pluralsight, which is great too. But I have worked with some talented people and you can learn exponentially with an absolute 'don' who knows how and what to teach. Do you guys know of names of individuals, whether on here or in and around London who you would highly recommend learning from and whom offer their time to do so?

Thanks
Yash

Thank you David.

I posted deliberately into the Linux/Microsoft as each have their own specialist areas.

My background is mainly security in the sphere of enterprise firewalls from Cisco to Watchguard, along with products such as Darktrace and on both Windows/Linux. However, some work places don't offer enough room to break/fix things as you're too busy doing other things. I haven't done enough penetration testing.

gr8gonzo said it best, "There are plenty of gurus in cyber security, but that doesn't mean they're good teachers. And even the good teachers aren't necessarily the right ones to train you."

The best security guys... you'll rarely hear about... unless you frequent security forums + high dollar private masterminds, where they do presentations.

Very rarely do these people toot their own horns... promote themselves...
