The course was good as an introduction to computer security, but I didn't find it helpful in regards to the title (working remotely from public network connections). Basically, the recommendation is "don't". I was expecting more advice in an hour.

Very informative course and contains helpful ideas to make your information more secure. The explanation of terms was very good and the summary after each lesson was also useful.

It was like a review as the slides are a little outdated. The information could have been a little more current than 2014.
