I appreciated the instructor's knowledge of the subject, and the 2nd half of the webinar was more helpful in understanding ITGC. The section on configuration was confusing and I'm not sure what it added to the overview. I think I was looking more for what ITGC small businesses could put into place, and this webinar seemed geared more for large companies with complex systems.

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.

If this is an introduction then the first section around windows configuration should be better explained as it is not general. Using tech language without explanation means this first section needed to be further checked

This course provided a solid introduction to ITGC, including the discussion of many examples. The instructor also goes into additional points not on the slides to enable a sufficient understanding.

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.
