TOP REVIEWS FROM IT SECURITY: DEFENSE AGAINST THE DIGITAL DARK ARTS
Really very good course. It teaches so many things which we have facing in our digital life but didn't noticed.\n\nAfter completing this course I'm conscious now about security and attacks.
I feel like this went way more in depth than I think most people just getting into it can handle. I think either this needs to be dumbed down or drawn out a bit more, but a lot of great info.
This was by far the hardest module to finish, but I did it and I especially would like to thank Coursera's support people for that. They rooted me on, and kept telling me not to give up. Thanks!
Content is good, but unfortunately I am not able to finish my tasks in LABS, since many links are broken, thus I cannot finish and get the certificate finally. It really prolongs my job search.
