Really good course for beginners. Thought provoking and a great source of resources to help you have a more secure digital life.

The concepts were clearly explained throughout the course and it was refreshing too.

This course is good for beginners since it contain very basic knowledge about Cyber Security , its terminologies and little knowledge about how to keep yourself safe on Internet.

It has given me a wonderful understanding of the fundamental before going into the more advanced sections of security.
