'The course was ‘more than interesting’ and ‘way better than I expected'. It would be a real eye-opener for most non-specialists. The historical framing was useful, and the message that ‘we are all connected, wherever we are’ came through strongly. The examples that were used were also very helpful.'  Andras

'I have enjoyed the course. You are obviously passionate about cybersecurity and this comes across in your delivery. This has helped me engage with a subject I previously found dry even though I knew it was an area I should make more of an effort to engage with.'  Dawn
