Was prepared and presented in a very special and superb way. I am glad I took and completed it. Thanks to my tutor Michael Hicks and special appreciation to coursera for making this possible for me.
Content is really valuable and actionable with a specific comeback for the student in terms of secure development, security and how to understand the origin of exploits and other cyber attacks

Great course. Learned a lot. Huge difference in comparison to first one from specialization. More hands on approach and great practice with project works. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to really go through basic in security. I just wish pen testing is done a bit more in depth (maybe project would be great idea).

I recommed this course as it covers a lot of topics related to cybersecurity and tips to desing secured software.
It requieres some knowlledge in C language and perhaps this is the hardest part if you aren´t used to code in this language. All lessons related to memoy attacks and static analysis are based in C language

this is the most strong course ever I has been study it, and it is totally rich of information that can make u log out from the website for few days to make ur own research and u will back again. thanks a lot to get my chance to be here and finish it and thanks to make it difficult

Very good course. Does require a significant amount of commitment, I would put it at 10-12 hours per week if you're to do things properly. I think if you give it a lot you'll get a lot from it in return. It's very interesting and engaging with clear explanations throughout.

Great course to learn about fundamentals of security. I have it used this course from time to time as an online reference material for my research work and personal projects. I would highly recommend this course by Prof. Hicks.

The course was really helpful and gave me new insights to the things that I have to keep in mind during the development of software. And give me clear insights how to tackle security related aspects during the SDLC.

This is hands down one of the toughest courses on coursera. Learning curve was steep and provided quite a lot of information. I recommend it to everyone who ever writes code or tests it. It was time well spent !
By Muhammad A N•
It found it very well structured course. The way in which Instructor maintains the flow and delivery of ideas is awesome. I appreciate for incorporation of interviews of leading experts of the relevant fields.
By Swagat P•

Prof. Hicks delivered one of my favourite Coursera courses. The course was both challenging and very relevant. It had the perfect balance of formal theory and roll-up your sleeves practical assignment.
By Victor J•
Really useful course. I would highly recommend it to any person interested in beginning with Software security. Some SW basic skills are needed to follow the course and take profit of the lessons.
By Pavel N•
Good course with wide range of important topics. I can recommend this course as introduction before further specialization. (low-level programming, sw testing, web security)
By Daniel B•
This was an awesome course. Tough, very informative and lots of fun. There were a few struggles here and there but it's worth sticking to it till completion. Very satisfied.
By CLAUDIO A•
Excellent course ! i wish there would be a part 2 to go deeply into some of the topics like penetration testing and fuzzying which are too wide to cover in 1 chapter.
By Yongpyo H•
I can make sense very exactly because professor explain the focus of Software Security very well.
It's good for me to understand that what is the Software Security.
By CIRIELLO V•
Fantistic course! i worked in past in Cyber Security but with this course i learned a lot of new things! The project exercises are very very nice. BadStore mainly
By Lambros Z•
Very informative course, which gives you the basics needed to go further into any of the subjects presented. It is quite challenging but well worth the effort.
By Степанков Д В•
That was great opportunity to shake my understanding of how safe software should look like. This really advances my understanding of software security issues.
By Aimee S•
I really appreciated all of the knowledge checks during this course. It kept me engaged with the material which was very new to me. Excellent instructor!
By Mahmoud H•
i really liked the course contains and the tutting, and it was actually very beneficial for me to develop my skills in software testing thank you again
By Priyank R•
Great course. A lot of developers or Tech Leads should take this course as they need to understand concepts related to Software Security. Very crucial.
By Andy D•
Very informative. A great place to get started understanding buffer overflow attacks, symbolic analysis and concepts related to software security.
