    Excellent course, and I found Professor Martin to be excellent in his delivery and explanation. I do feel the exercises could do with a bit more explanation. The materials do not actually match the open ended questions. Overall an excellent course, delivering a great introduction to security.

    A great introduction to Information Security. It covers all that is necessary to jump into the field. Concise and to the point. The last week that covers employment and different organizations/structures was particularly useful. Absolutely loved the quiz format and readings suggested. Actually considering looking into applying for the University of London. Thank you! ( 4 stars because one of the speakers was at times really difficult to understand–transcript was necessary).

    Course is very good and content is useful for the beginners. In this course they have discussed almost all the things broadly and they have also given reference of other useful websites. I suggest that Coursera may also add some practical use of cryptography or firewall or network security in this course. Overall this is awesome. This course cleared confusion in many terminologies.

    I must say that this course has really widened my hitherto fair knowledge of Cybersecurity. This for me was the first step in my journey to becoming a leading player in the Information Security space in my country (Nigeria). I have learnt a lot about cybersecurity and other risk management techniques necessary for ensuring Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of organisational information and IT assets.

    An excellent choice to get started with IS. It explains some basics that build up your language and awareness. Even if you are in the IT business for a while and you are dealing with this on a daily basis it is nice to get such overview on IT security.

    He hecho este curso de Introduccion a la Seguridad Informatica en diversos contenidos ya que descubrio que, en cada uno de ellos, se encuentra algun tema que no avarcan los otros. Por ejemplo, los temas de la ultima semana no fueron vistos en las otras capacitaciones. Lo he hecho en Cisco Networking Academy, LACNIC, Universidad Tecnologica Nacional (Argentina), y otros. Realmente me gusto como se encararon los temas asi como los nuevos conocimientos adquiridos. No obtendre el certificado ya que, como es de publico conocimiento, la situacion economica de mi pais no me lo permite (el costo del certificado equivale a la cuarta parte de lo que pago por el alquiler de mi departamento). Aun asi, valio la pena.

    A relevant course, real concepts and fields I have never heared about. I advise this course. The point that maybe be optimized : the videos about the same subject could be longer and brought together. (Not necessarily).
