But being able to focus requires some amount of guidance. The amount of data available to us today is massive and is only increasing as the days go by. Thus, the need for cybersecurity also increases. 

Read about Rizan Saad’s journey with Great Learning’s Stanford Advanced Cyber Security Course and how he benefited from the course. 

Why did you choose to upskill?

I was very interested to learn more about Computer Security, and that’s when I heard about Great Learning’s Stanford Advanced Computer Security Program on the web.

In the beginning, I was afraid to take up the online course due to the fact of the amount of information covered and the time management towards completion over conventional classroom learning. But the mentored learning sessions of the course made it very easy, as they guided me on the business use cases and scenarios on the topics covered in the program.

I enrolled in this program in august. In the beginning, I faced difficulties in time management to watch videos. But my Program Manager – Vivek helped me all the way and assisted in scheduling custom deadlines for me to complete the courses I was lagging in.
