Ed is a very engaging instructor and tries to make the content applicable and understandable. I would recommend this course for anyone who is looking for an introduction to the world of cybersecurity!
I'm so glad I could complete this course as I look forward to continuing other courses on Cyber attacks. Its been helpful as it gave me the background knowledge as to what is needed in Cyber Security.

Good introduction. Many points that would be useful for a non-IT professional from managerial perspective. Some of the links to Videos and Readings are dead, but students on the associated forum pages have found working ones, so not a huge drawback. Would be good to have any indication if teaching assistants are tracking what's going on or if the students are on their own.

I really love Dr Ed Amoroso after taking this course, Dr Ed has opened my eyes about the reality of cyber security and cleared out so many myths, I wish I could meet him in reality so I could have so many things to learn from him. I will surely take the rest of the courses by Dr Ed in this specialization and will try to learn from him as much as I can. Thanks a lot Sir.

This is a good intro or an update for practitioners for people who have been out of the loop. Good videos, good presentation - Keeps your attention through the course
Thanks, sorry it is over. Sure there are another few levels and specialties that can be built as further courses.

Excellent and engaging course with many interesting videos and real life stories. Fascinating Professor who gives a pragmatic approach to introduction on cyber security while keeping it simple to understand for a layman with no prior background. Highly recommended!

It doesn't include any coding or cryptography, but I think this course is a must for everyone who is out there for learning Cyber Security at a beginner level. Also, the instructor is very engaging and never lets you feel bore.

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.

I enjoyed this course and found it very well-structured: I do not have any academic background in IT but had no difficulty understanding the videos as they go straight to the point and use clear examples. On the other hand, I have to say that I found the readings more difficult as I was not familiar with many terms and concepts. Maybe adding a short dictionary or a note where the main concepts are explained before each article could help. Also, I was hoping to receive some feedback about the answers to the final test which would help me with the understanding of how to assess risk. Apart from these two points, the course is fantastic. I was very glad to see that the lessons and the final test are projected towards practical applications in real-life scenarios. I recommend this course and I am looking forward to attending the next one being part of the “Introduction to Cybersecurity” specialization.

Professor is engaging, and subject matter is taught in an interesting manner. Generally a good course. One issue is that there are links to required assignments that no longer work. I submitted a note to address this, and observed that other students have already done so several months before I had. This problem should be attended to.

The Course content wre amazing; I get a lot from my Instructor Edd; But Unfortunately could not take my Certificate; I think you should work on your ID Verification Tool, i have Upload a Valid ID and yet you couldn't verify, Your ID verification system is not Competent enough to do the task
