TOP REVIEWS FROM NETWORK SECURITY & DATABASE VULNERABILITIES
This course was brief only introduction to Network and Database security.\n\nI request Coursera and IBM to launch advanced course also continuing CyberSecurity program.
A little difficult to understand the instructor, videos examples I find I had a hard time understanding, and it was not clear, I find it to be very blury
There were some problems with audio quality in the last week, and sometimes the teachers would ramble rather than getting to the point.
Nice course, containing a lot of useful material. Especially on Database Vulnerabilities!
Another great course! Looking forward to completing the specialisation.
A good course to learn about networking and databases.
