There are some fundamental topics covered in this course which many overlook. No individual is susceptible to the dangers with cyber crime, hacking, and being exposed to numerous vulnerabilities while working with technology. A great refresher for anybody in the corporate world

Course materials were helpful. However, commentary was very good in that it didn't repeat verbatim what was already on the slides. The instructor included examples and spoke to instances to help drive the point of the lesson home.

This is a good refresher course for me. I assume it's a good starting point for someone who doesn't know anything about IT controls. The instructor is knowledgeable.

Great class. This is a great refresher. I am an IT Audit Manager at a company that has the most material weaknesses in US history. They could have used this.
