TOP REVIEWS FROM CYBER ATTACK COUNTERMEASURES
I like how Dr. Amoroso made some complicated concept sounds easy. I also love when he told us about the history of cyber security in this course.
Instructor makes it easy to understand and keeps it interesting. Especially enjoy the talks and due credits to the unsung hero's of the early cyber security scene.
Great info, well-chosen readings, wish there were more practice problems. Assignments and quizzes are good for a Coursera course, but not great.
Excellent!! You are a great teacher, and I learned a lot. I have already applied the knowledge gained to my business. Grazie mille.
