On-line Course - 'Introduction to Cyber Security'

I have completed the Open University course 'Introduction to Cyber Security'. Topics included threat landscape, authentication, malware, networking and communications security, cryptography, legal background, recovering from attacks and risk analysis & management.

I had some knowledge of this subject from work and education but it was nice to study this as a cohesive unit. There was an interesting mix of content including video, images, audio and text. The case studies, particularly those regarding how cyber criminals conducted their attacks, were fascinating.

I wanted to do the weekly tests for the course, so opted to pay for an upgrade to have the tests included. I got an overall mark of over 70% for the tests which meant I successfully passed the course.
