I studied for a LONG time for this and it paid off. I'm taking this certification for preparation towards the Security+, so far, I think it's doing a good job at preparing me for it.

This course ought to have come first to provide a context for each concepts presented in previous courses. It really provided more clarity on the whole field of Cyber Security.

Very high level. Almost no examples.

Half of the lessons have very poor audio compromised by room acoustics, annoying reverberation, wrong microphone placement, and transmission drop-outs. This deteriorates the intelligibility considerably. Sometimes rendering the presentation useless.

The other half of the lessons is a presentation with professional voice over. However, the voice actor has no idea what she is reading.

Find yourself another course. This one is really bad.

I have certificates from nine courses so far and while some were excellent (five stars), this one is by far the worst one!

The woman who reads most of this is either drunk and/or doesn't understand the content of what she is reading.

Knowledge of cyber threats and its growing number of exploits and other considerations from the hardware and software points of view have become a key consideration when deploying new company initiatives. Knowing about these challenges is key in order to make these efforts safe and sustainable in time

Excellent and well structured. This course is a really ready job placement. I learned a lot through the video and Labs completed through the IBM security academy. Now I can apply the knowledge gain as a Threat Hunter. Thanks IBM

I"m going to give this course 3*'s because of a few issues. Firstly, The specialization has vanished from Coursera's catalog!. Secondly, the final video before the graded assessment has a lot of audio that makes it feel as if the video/course has been tampered with, and thirdly, the course instructors have a robotic voice, and in the discussion forums don't have a prompt response timing!

But the course contents are really good. Going to have to check my laptop if the weird sounds caused any troubles.

After the lab is started it doesn't takes commands. I am unable to complete lab and unable to get knowledge about the lab.

This is with all the labs not with particular lab. After opening the browser in the windows framework of Lab i am not able to do anything.

I am excited for the opportunity to receive such knowledge, education, hands on training which has been building to the level this course is geared to. I realize the value of the learning at the level this course exposes students to. I sometimes feel overwhelmed but each week teaches such valuable knowledge that I realize more and more I am working toward the goals set at the beginning of each course. I can't wait to be able to prove and expand on my abilities, knowledge, and learning and to be able to experience what I have studied for so long now.

This course armed me with the tools to understand and implement new security practices in my workplace. It also introduced new ways to help me protect myself and my family from potential cyber threats. The only suggestion I would make for people who are interested in taking this course would be to make sure you have a general understanding of Cyber Security terms and a basic understaning of network knowledge. It can be a bit difficult to digest some of the material if you are brand new to Cyber Security.
