Anonymous partially completed this course.
I started on this course, and left it after browsing through the course materials for the following reasons:

- Very little substantive material is covered, the syllabus is flimsy, and I think you would learn much more from OpenUniversity's cybersecurity course.

- The background music and use of sound effects went overboard and were driving me crazy. For each short lecture video you also have to sit through close to 10s of introductory "digital" sounding music at the beginning of the video. Annoying and a waste of time.

by Sheilla audited this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
There is little substance to this course. I would not recommend this unless you really like to read dense material with very little support from the staff or moderators. Each week has about 2 minutes of video then 3-6 hours of reading. The materials are dated (most are ~2012) and when you report the links are broken/lead to material that is no longer up-to-date, they remove the content and you are left with nothing to build upon. the quizzes don't really follow the readings and use acronyms that may or may not be relevant or in the readings you are "required" to read, if you can access them.
