"This course made me realize how critical cybersecurity is to an organization. The lab environment was put together really well. Each section has questions that really encourage you to try it for yourself first and then confirm your solution. Also, the script and step by step guide were on point. I’ve even shown my coworkers a few tips I learned in the course." OSLY S. - Support Engineer
