Über den Kurs

This course provides learners with a baseline understanding of common cyber security threats, vulnerabilities, and risks. An overview of how basic cyber attacks are constructed and applied to real systems is also included. Examples include simple Unix kernel hacks, Internet worms, and Trojan horses in software utilities. Network attacks such as distributed denial of service (DDOS) and botnet- attacks are also described and illustrated using real examples from the past couple of decades. Familiar analytic models are outlined such as the confidentiality/integrity/availability (CIA) security threat framework, and examples are used to illustrate how these different types of threats can degrade real assets. The course also includes an introduction to basic cyber security risk analysis, with an overview of how threat-asset matrices can be used to prioritize risk decisions. Threats, vulnerabilities, and attacks are examined and mapped in the context of system security engineering methodologies....

Very interesting MOOC with an excellent instructor who is passionate about cyber security. Some of the readings did require further CS knowledge (e.g. the buffer overflow one) and some of the quiz questions seemed to go beyond a week's content. Otherwise, this course helped me to gain a better basic understanding of cyber attacks and risk assessment.

With this course, I was able to learn the basics of how cyber attacks occur and how they are carried out. During this course, I learned how to deal with real situations in internet networks of large technology companies and other sectors. All I have to say is, Gratitude to Professor Edd Amoroso for teaching me virtually with his classes.

Great course for beginners who want to learn concepts regarding cyber attacks. The professor Edward is great at simplifying the terminology by using day to day examples or analogies.

I really enjoyed this course as I learnt a lot and already signed up for another course called ''real cyber threat detection and mitigation''

I think as an introduction it was pretty good. I could learn the basic in cyber security, but I still need deeper understanding how to analyze different types of risk in the threat-asset matrix.

For the reading sessions, I don't think the established time to finish them is right, especially for the TCP/IP Illustrated Volume I

Very good introduction to the world of cyber security with interesting examples of current and yesterday's threats. The course also gives a good overview of the tools and concepts suitable to do security analysis for a business or organization. Well produced videos with an inspiring and enthusiastic teacher.

Excellent introduction to the concept of cybersecurity. The lecturer explains key concepts clearly and, sometimes, with a sense of humor which makes it easy to follow along. Along the way, one learns about some actual data breaches that occurred recently and how these were made possible. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed studying this course, and I like Edward Amaroso's way of teaching. I'm looking further to studying more cybersecurity courses with him.

I know I didn't enroll to just talk about management and matrices, but Dr. Amaroso made it fun.

I have nothing I'd like to add in the course, its perfect.

Edward is a incredible trainer; his course is engaging, the material presented is accurate, sometimes not up to date but still great to increase your security knowledge. The course and the suggested ebook provides you a good deal of information to build a security assessment for an organization.

I am just starting in cyber and I am very happy to have start with this module.

The approach in cyber is so easy and full with understandable exemple that even I can make sense out of it. I was also able to identify what I need to learn and improve before going further in cyber.

This course was very good for an introductory into the Cyber Security field. Although I already have 3 years of experience I definitely learned something each week. I love the training style of the professor and will continue the 4-course specialization program.

Great course, thank you!One thing that could be improved is the course material, in the sense that I found some of the papers area a bit too technical for starting into the topic. Also a videos and tasks on fundamentals on IP protocolls etc. could be helpful.

This course is great. It explains the basics of Cyber Security to beginners. I knew some of the things and some other things I didn't even know they existed, so this course has helped me a lot into learning different types of things in Cyber Security.

The Professor injected real life experiences into this course by inviting speakers who demonstrated or explained cyber attacks they orchestrated. The case studies were challenging but educational. I really liked his realistic approach to this course.

E​xtremely well-organized and presented. The supplementary materials are also top-notch. The only drawback is the same drawback every other Coursera course I've ever taken has: too few practice exercises to really transform the ideas into knowledge.

I found this course to be a solid introduction to Cybersecurity. It has really shaped my view and understanding of cyber. It really takes more than penetration testing to understand what cybersecurity is all about. Thank you.
