Before I decided to start this course, I had heard about Palo Alto Networks and what they did.

This course met my expectations about Cybersecurity. There is a lot of material to read for you

but it feels state-of-the-art, especially the sections of Cyberattack techniques, Wi-Fi threats,

Cloud security and Third-generation application firewall. Thanks to the instructors Mitch (Week 1),

Christopher and John (Week 2), Bob and Patrick (Week 3), Jason, Charles and Mark (Week 4), it was a

pleasure to get insight into modern basic knowledge in Cybersecurity. The Course Project during

week 4 was great since it tied together earlier weeks and became extra applied over what one has

read and learned from before. Regards from Sweden

Incredibly valuable course, although it only covers a very high level overview of mainstream concepts. Probably not worth doing without the other courses in the specialization.
