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.

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.

This course was exceptional! Not only were the instructors more clear and visuals on point, but also the labs - hands-on experience was very valuable. Jude Lancaster insights based on his experience were great. IBM labs' notes were very informative (it is great to know why we doing what we doing or why not to do something e.g. learning that the ODA feature was out of scope or the UBA made sense on why not doing things another way.

Of all the certification courses, this is perhaps one of the most interesting for me. Data loss prevention, SIEM concepts, threat hunting and hierarchical correlation with SOCs, hands-on labs and tools for vulnerability analysis, tactical defense and data classification. Thank you to the instructors who helped prepare and teach the course!

I am in school for my BS in CyberSecurity with a focus on Intelligence and Forensic Studies. This course pushed me, and will make me better at my job. This course will ultimately help me to better analyze and detect problems faster, and by doing that I will be able to save companies, or my government millions of dollars in the long run.

extremely informative. I would strongly recommend everyone to take courses offered by IBM. Everything is so detailed but the candidate must put in a lot of time and effort and should also consider taking notes for everything in order to pass the graded assessment tests. I would never regret doing this course.
