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.

Informative but there needs to be some sort of lab training other than just memorizing concepts.

This should have been free. Good information, but it felt a bit like a sales pitch from IBM.
