It has been a pleasure to have been able to participate in this cyber-security course. I've watched all of the videos multiple times, and really like the way professor Weissman explain, and give examples. I will continue reading and practicing what I learn in this course, and will sign for next one. Thank You professor Weissman, for making us better.

Great lecturer Prof. Jonathan S. Weissman. You're enthusiastic and clear in all your explanations. I truly enjoyed your delivery of the entire course. I now can claim I know more than I did before and I'm very thankful. I also enjoyed the use of lecture videos, animations and demos which clarified most confusing bits and pieces of the course.
