This is a great course by all standards. This course is supposed to be practical in nature especially the System Administration part so that students can practice all the permissions that were taught.

Course content is informative, applicable and its delivered in a manner so that concepts, methods and tools can be understood. In most scenarios, the tools, methods and concepts are explained in enough detail to allow comprehension and in other scenarios a demo is provided. Good course for anyone interested in Cybersecurity but be warned, you will need to put in the time, some areas are difficult and will require that the material and concepts be reviewed multiple times.

Thorough coverage of IT security compliance frameworks and solid linkage between key concepts like the CIA triad and the frameworks. Additionally this course does well showing the connection of the compliance frameworks like SOX and GDPR to important security practices in system administration. The course makes clear the WHY behind the WHAT in managing secure enterprise environments - or even just your personal computers at home.

A very nice and fun course. Some parts are really demanding and require you to pay attention very closely. The one of Cryptography was really nice. To the one of Endpoints and Unified EndPoint Management taught me a lot on how to properly set it up.

정말 필요한 과목들만 알차게 모아서 들어있습니다. 게다가 NIST, CIS를 비롯하여 GDPR과 같은 최신동향도 강의에서 반영되어 있어 아주 만족스러웠습니다. 다만, 강의가 아주 심도깊은 레벨은 아니고 개론식으로 이해하고 넘어가는 측면이기 때문에 심화지식을 원하시는 분들은 다른 강의를 추가적으로 찾아보셔야 합니다.
