TOP REVIEWS FROM INFORMATION SECURITY: CONTEXT AND INTRODUCTION
Excellent intro course. I'm giving 4 stars just because it tackle security mostly as an organizational/company issue and it doesn't explicitly include personal security/privacy into account.
This has been very informative. I am in the IT industry and this has served as a good reminder and has helped me understand some rationales behind some of the things I do on a daily basis.
Good insights into concepts and methodologies involved in establishing a secure Information Management System based on the CIA model with Intrusion detection and prevention protocols.
This course was a great introduction to information security. It was not so difficult but so easy to learn. it made me understand fundamental languages of this field.
The course touches upon all the necessary topics that relates to the security aspects of the Information world. A good start to get into the world of cyber security.
I could learn a lot of elementary knowledge of cybersecurity. There is no code and that's why I would say 4 stars. Other than that, this is very useful for newbies.
