This course is for you if you are interested in transitioning toward a managerial role in cybersecurity and mobility. Through interviews with industry experts in this area, you will be able to analyze innovations powering the rapid spread of information technology and how they present new challenges for protecting data. For example, mobile devices increase convenience but often bypass traditional security measures. After this course, you will be able to describe how the nature of the threat evolves, as culprits employ a burgeoning set of sophisticated tools to take advantage of our growing reliance on networks for critical-data exchange. If you want to pursue a career in the public sector, the stakes are high as well. The proliferation of hackers, inevitable human errors, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives, and the ever-broadening need to share information weigh heavily on government and education organizations, and consume substantial resources. The Pentagon, for example, has proposed to spend $23 billion on network security initiatives through 2018. This sounds like a large sum, until you consider the scope and importance of the U.S. government information resources this investment must protect. After completing the course modules you will be able to explain how yesterday’s prevention strategies are no longer adequate for stopping advanced, targeted attacks. Effective cybersecurity must be multi-dimensional and tiered, as threats can originate from virtually anywhere, target numerous levels of an organization, and sometimes persist for months or years before an information security staff is aware of an attack or breach. Therefore securing networks requires a holistic approach that incorporates several elements.

Wholesome experience Really great introduction course for IOT and BYOD devices.

Interesting info and very interesting point of view Excellent course for learning about the growing cybersecurity challenges associated with BYOD & enterprise users moving to their personal devices.

The issues at hand are however still valid, though Good course for general knowledge of the subject.

Hence, I guess its a very good course for this specialisation.

Would be better if this course includes guidelines and policies of cyber security this course its very good Useful Links to 4 year old articles, websites and TED talks that can be found on Google don't really constitute a course to me sorry.

Cyber Security is miniscule in the topic.

Mobility poses severe cyber security threat and syllabus is talking about MDM which is for compliance and cyber security.

Course is designed very well, tutor explained all topics in detail and would be great if there are some additional information about the progression towards as a Cyber Security profession.
