The hype wave has left with a surfeit of options in IoT security. Too many choices. Too many endpoint and proprietary solutions, too many platform choices for IoT data ingestion. No wonder even security professionals are confused by where to start! This course cuts through the confusion and gives one a clear roadmap to optimize IoT security.

I liked the course, it was comprehensive without being pedantic. The examples the instructor gave are clear and precise, and he's fun to listen to. I'd recommend the course to anyone who has a real desire to understand the true dimensions of the subject of IoT security.
