TOP REVIEWS FROM CRYPTOGRAPHY
Really helpful bur you need to match all the required knowledge before jumping in otherwise you won't understand a thing
Good course, but can get very deep at times, especially near the middle of the course.
The first 2 weeks are rather simple, week 3 is okay, 4 and 5 are very detailed, and 6 and 7 are easier.
I love the course material and the professor's way of teaching. This course is very detailed and one of the hardest course I ever took on Coursera.
It found it very well structured course. The way in which Instructor maintains the flow and delivery of ideas is awesome.
About the Cybersecurity Specialization
The Cybersecurity Specialization covers the fundamental concepts underlying the construction of secure systems, from the hardware to the software to the human-computer interface, with the use of cryptography to secure interactions. These concepts are illustrated with examples drawn from modern practice, and augmented with hands-on exercises involving relevant tools and techniques. Successful participants will develop a way of thinking that is security-oriented, better understanding how to think about adversaries and how to build systems that defend against them.
