The professor did a great job in giving a good understanding of how the recent global brought about technology innovations and the importance of adapting to change so that business can continue. A number of changes that took place and implantation of virtual platforms was discussed. The two step authentication is also a very powerful tool to reduce cyber thieves.

Blair Cook is one of my favorite instructors on Illumeo, so I seek out his courses. Once again, he didn't let me down. This course is especially interesting because it is recent and relevant to the new normal of business life. I took away 2-3 ideas that I'd like to implement with my team. Good, fun course!

Some of the material was common sense also a little outdated since this was made more than 6 months ago.
