    Real great short course in cyber security . the teacher is very good both in knowledge of subject and his presentation style of lectures are friendly and practical . the course comes alive when the assignment was giving out which is reflection based on material learned. by doing the assignment I learned so much. It felt like a mini masters thesis in some ways but at diploma level. really happy with course as the structure is based on learning from other students input . If you willing to work hard and put the time into the assignment and course you will gain so much from this short course.
