TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CYBERSECURITY TOOLS & CYBER ATTACKS
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.
ofcourse, it was knowledgable and consisted of people genius in their field. however, the sound quality of these lectures were very poor and intercepted the student's ability to study for long hours
I appreciate the chance to learn fundamentals of cyber security with you. The vast number of topics made it pretty interesting for me and I couldn't wait to learn more.\n\nSincerely, Sadra Zargar
The quality for the material needs to be improved in terms of visualization and audio. The title is little bit misleading as i expect to be more insides to Cybersecurity tools like nmap nesus etc...
