TOP REVIEWS FROM INFORMATION SECURITY: CONTEXT AND INTRODUCTION
Excellent course, only point of improvement i can think of is the discussion platform. Lots of times i was unable to read the discussions because the layout would be very buggy on ipad/smartphone.
Through Coursera, I can now become a cyber physical security expert. With their online course, I have had basic knowledge in information security. I encourage others to join their online program.
First of all ,I thank you for this course that opens my eyes and enlighten my concept about information security in general. I learnt more than what I expected that will help me in my carrier.
Excellent intro course. I'm giving 4 stars just because it tackle security mostly as an organizational/company issue and it doesn't explicitly include personal security/privacy into account.
