In this cybersecurity course, you will gain a global perspective of the challenges of designing a secure system, touching on all the cyber roles needed to provide a cohesive security solution. Through lecture, labs, and breakout discussion groups, you will learn about current threat trends across the Internet and their impact on organizational security. You will review standard cybersecurity terminology and compliance requirements, examine sample exploits, and gain hands-on experience mitigating controls. In a contained lab environment, you will work with live viruses, including botnets, worms, and Trojans.

I just took the Cybersecurity Foundations course through a virtual offering and it was fantastic. The instructor Brett Hanson was wonderful and really made the course super interesting, engaging, and personable. Even as someone who entered the course with a pretty well-rounded understanding of many of the topics covered, he still made the course worth while and a valuable investment of my time. He catered to students of all skill-levels which is not an easy thing to do! The week flew by I honestly forgot I was in class most of the time because the discussions were so interesting and consistent. This was my first time taking a course and I was very impressed with the overall experience as well as the feasibility of navigating through the online learning platform and being able to easily access the virtual classroom environment. 5 stars for sure I highly recommend! I can't wait to take more courses if presented the opportunity.

Overall the course material was great and the labs were hands on, which us nice when learning new material

Good job on providing details earlier and all the bookmark contend was nice to have.

We went through AWS slides with the instructor answering our questions and providing his personal expertise. overall very positive experience
