Hugely interesting course and eye opening to understand all the vulnerabilities that exist. Even though we have security reps within the company this would make you think there is a need for specially trained staff whose sole focus is that.

This was a very detailed and interesting course that has covered number of topics which were interactive and easy to fallow. Simon was a great teacher who has explained everything really well and was very approachable. Thank you for your time and effort.

Great course, great materials, good exercises. Simon is a really great teacher have picked up some helpful hints on what to look out for. The threat modelling exercise was worthwhile. I think all employees should do this course.

Comprehensive course about all Internet Security concerns. Good ratio of content, interaction, real life examples. Recommended.
