TOP REVIEWS FROM CYBER ATTACK COUNTERMEASURES
Really good content especially in explaining public key cryptography. Not sure why there is peer review for the final (it's a short multiple choice quiz), but it worked out ok since I finished early.
This course is exactly what I was looking for. Dr. Edward is absolutely phenomenal at explaining every single point with great detail and his unique style of teaching makes him one of a kind!
Fantastic Experience i have with Dr.Ed.. The Only issue that i faced is the volume of videos... volume is too low when i switch on my study room fan... Kindly work on this.
The course is called Cyber Attacks Countermeasures, but really only focuses on Authentication and Encryption. Great class on those topics for someone new to cyber security!
