  1. Too basic


    Too basic course, it does not cover any point in depth

  2. A good introduction and presentation


    I was hoping deeper information but I think it’s a good introduction to be able to go further, the problem is presented and then each steps is then exposed.

  3. Software Security Testing (W11)


    Topic covered are not detailed in technical

  4. Software Security Testing (W11)


    Content was good just not in depth enough. It was a good intro for someone not playing in this space to dig deeper.

  5. Good for Beginners


    Nice course…

  6. A very Basic Introduction course.


    This course is a nice primer for people getting into security.
    For security experts that are already familiar with SDL this is fine a fast review.

  7. Coverage could be more


    There is a good Secure Source Code Review tool called Checkmarx CxAudit which is really good but not covered. Similarly for Armorize.

    More coverage and examples could make the course better.
