TOP REVIEWS FROM CYBER ATTACK COUNTERMEASURES
Good course. Very well though out approach towards teaching the subject. Engaging and informative. And it made learning a pleasure.
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.
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.
This is an excellent course with enough historical context for those who are not familiar with cybersecurity and good videos and current developments in the field.
