I could learn a lot of elementary knowledge of cybersecurity. There is no code and that's why I would say 4 stars. Other than that, this is very useful for newbies.

The modules on cryptography are excellent for a beginner. The treatment of ISO27000 and difference between policies and standards is very confusing and rushed.
