If you want to learn cybersecurity and you have no idea about that. Then this is the best course which covers all the basic topics and provide you a best knowledge about cybersecurity and their tools.

The reading link to Week 03's Framework and their purpose is Broken. Please Fix it. Everything else seemed perfect. I would recommend this course for people who think of starting their careers in CyS.

Some parts of the course were a little difficult to understand because of the organization. The presenters in some of the parts were jumping around or not fully explaining a concept which made it a little difficult to follow. Also if there were texts or websites that can be given before the course to help supplement with the course it would be greatly appreciated.

Your content is very good but the sound quality is very worse not getting anythings. please put with good sound quality. You guys works on IBM and doesn't have good quality microphone? How cheap? The course cannot be best without audio with is everything and and the quality of sound is low that the microphone that you are using is less than a dollar.

Some of the material is repetitive (f.e. talks about the same exact classification of threaths in weeks 1,2 & 3). I feel there wasn't a good communication between the lecturers, hence the repetition. At some videos audio was really bad. Otherwise, the course gives a good, but brief introduction. Hope the next one in the specialisation is better.

I gave this course a 3 stars rating because some of explanations & prouncations wasn't fully clear to follow especially, while watching the diagram layouts, etc, but I did enjoyed learning lots of new things about computer hackers & actors, malwares, cybercrime, cyberwarfare, CIA triads, security programs &, security threats!

The course structure does not seem to follow a logic flow; all the concepts presented are very useful but often repeated in different lectures; sometime the material and videos seems to be taken from other classes keeping just the relvant part. To summarize: a lot of good concepts and information badly structured,

There were some great visuals and obvious tons of expert teaching. However, some of the audio was difficult to understand, I often felt like the instructor was reading off of a slide rather than elaborating and providing context or simple examples, and the general flow of the course didn't really make sense to me.

m​ost of the videos were recorded poorly, made it so hard to understand at a point. using non english speaking lecturers is a downside to taking this course, and it states its a begginer level but some things are mentioned and expected to be automatically understood at the begginer level. quite dissapointing

This is supposed a course for beginners, with no background at all. The lecturers use many technical terms that are unknown for students without any prior knowledge. So I obviously googled them (TCP,UDP, etc.) and studied them, but I would prefer that everything that matters will be explained in the course.

Some material links are dead, subtitles are software generated and need amendments, many videos have the slides/audio out of sync, some quizzes have poor questions. The course does, however, provide very useful external resources to develop the necessary skills in cybersecurity. It's an ok INTRO course.

This course is a good start for beginners. But I wont say, it was the best as personally I felt there is alot more to cover for beginners. This was more like a introductory course and very theoretical and no hands on practices were given. Audio quality must improve too. But It was good learning.

Great information, the subtitles are a little off and the audio is somewhat hard to hear. I had to re-watch some of the videos in order to fully understand what was being said.

But other than that, it was really good information. A good foundation into CyberSecurity. I cannot wait to learn more!

THE COMPLETE COURSE WAS VERY BENEFICIAL AND HELPFUL FOR PROVIDING INFORMATION ABOUT CYBER SECURITY , BUT THERE SHOULD BE SOME PRACTICAL LEARNING AND TO GIVE PRACTICAL DEMONSTRATION ALSO . IT WAS A GREAT EXPERIENCE .

BUT I DIDN'T RECEIVED MY IBM BADGE YET . THAT IS DISSAPOINTING .

It was alright. I learned a fair amount, but being lectured to by unengaging instructors reading off a powerpoint, some of whom don't speak english very well, can make getting through this class feel more like a chore. Regardless, it still contained good information.

Giving 3 stars because audio quality is poor. Some of the questions in the quiz are not even mentioned in the videos, some of the choices/questions have spelling errors.

Regardless, it provides an very decent introduction to Cybersecurity Tools and Cyber Attacks

The course has a poor quality of audio and slides. Most of the videos are pre-recorded from internal training and they ofter refer to topics not covered in the course. The topics were interesting though but often too basic or not well connected together.

T​his course is full of audio issues. One woman I could not even focus on what she was saying because someone in a nearby office to hers was banging on a door so loudly. It made me feel as if this course was just kind of thrown together and rushed.

The course modules were great but some videos audios were not audible enough and that was below my expectation. I’m glad I completed the course. It was really challenging combining work,business,family and other commitments with doing this course.

some of the speakers were barely intelligible and some of the scripts were rambling and barely relevant.

other elements were fine with decent slides to accompany.

would suggest more detail on slides to compensate for the poorer presenters.

The basics of the course are good and useful for entering the world of cybersecurity. However, the automatically translated transcripts, which are very often incorrect and therefore more difficult to understand, are to be criticised.

the material was good for an introduction but i was struggling with the audio and some of the transcripts were totally wrong so i just began ignoring them. Maybe if you could clean up the audio i would give it the full 5 stars.

The lessons in this course are very interesting and well informed to the viewer. The only problem is the audio quality of the video. It just like you are listening in a two-way radio, please make it more clearly. Thank you.

Overall I think that this is an okay course. The 3-5 minute lectures were tedious. I understand that teaching an online course is difficult but I just would like to see more engaging lectures for all learning styles.

A huge barrier to learning from this course is simply the mic quality. I don't understand how that is limiting factor for this. Very unfortunate because the content seems good but it is such a pain to try and parse.

Great course, taught a lot of background information and basics of what cyber security is and what a job in Cyber security looks like. Would have liked more hand on projects to test methods that were explained.

I'm not gonna lie, with this course I was able to learn the basic concepts and theory of Cybersecurity, but some of the videos were very low sound quality. Coming from IBM, I was expecting a little more effort.
