Awesome - Terrifying Course ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐   

This course gives you detailed information on getting information on-line. It has more in-depth information than most people should have. In fact, I would recommend it ONLY for those who are in positions where they can be trusted to use the information safely. This is very sensitive information and could be misused by the wrong people. It is excellent and should be required for anyone in data protection and law enforcement. Every police department in the country should have a cyber division and should be taking these courses - especially this one.

This was a great foundational course that I felt provided some new tools and perspectives that I could use, even with having a decent understanding of cyber investigations. Very well explained and you could tell that the instructors were passionate about their work. Thanks!
