TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CYBER ATTACKS
its a awesome course.it fills us with knowledge and also spread awareness about different types of cyber attacks and how to prevent ourselves. it also adds my skills list to my resume.
Great introductory course to cyber security. Learned the basics of cyber security, CIA model of threat assessment and how to classify assets for each of the threats level - High Medium Low.
Great course. Nice overview of frameworks and models to view security with perspective and then develops further on risk models. I felt the final quiz was a little too subjective.
The Instructor was Incredibly knowledgable, and the videos were excellent. I was able to understand what he was talking about given my very little knowledge of cyber security prior to this course.
