Hello everyone!


I've been using the good advice posted on the forums for a while now, so now I'm coming to ask a bit of help from the community.


Briefly, me and a friend have created a cyber security course for beginners, focusing on offering practical and actionable lessons for Internet users worldwide.

The course helps beginners in cyber security learn about the basics of information security and a bit about data privacy as well.

I'd like to kindly ask those of you who are interested in such a course and have a few minutes to spare if you could share some feedback on it, because I feel that there's a lot of room for improvement.

For example, I believe that some lessons are too long, but I'm not sure which parts I should leave out, because I don't want to cut out something useful. Also, other lessons seem like they could use more examples.

I should mention that the course is delivered via email - a new lesson every 2 days.

Thanks in advance for anyone who will pitch in with ideas and feedback! I really appreciate it!

PS: If you have other courses for beginners in mind, it would be great if you could share them as well, since well structured resources for them are quite difficult to find.
I'm still learning from how things are put together myself, so it would be much appreciated.

Of course!


About the subjects of each lesson, here's what we covered so far:
- security basics
- fundamental security vocabulary
- security myths
- password security
- choosing a good AV and other products to go with it
- how to stop and solve a system vulnerability
- wi-fi security
- email security
- social media security
- cloud security
-protection from identity threats
- detect a cyber attack
- keeping kids and parents safe online while browsing the web
- common sense security practices.

If you were a cyber security beginner, what else would you like to learn?

Also, if you want to review the lessons, just let me know and I'll share the contents.
