Excellent overview of existing state of play. Also very interesting coverage of psychology underpinning cyber behaviours. Thank you for this enlightening course!

I wish there should be a more detailed and broadened bulletins of particular and concrete cases about cyber conflicts throughout the whole world.

This is a great course to get a solid understanding of the human, the psychological aspect of international cyber activities. This covers civilians, criminals, and of course associated government activities. There is a strong component on the motivation of cyber attackers. This is crucial for any cyber analyst, since there is the potential to dissuade or even eliminate the motivation for the cyber hacker to carry out attacks.
Another really interesting aspect of the cyber space arena is the comparison of it to the traditional war space. Is it the same? This gets to the heart of the nature of cyber space, it's intangibility, and its no-boundaries, classless nature. The final analogy drawn is between the cyber tools/war race and the nuclear arms race. Readings support the fact that we are in the early stages of cyber space, but are they really the same?
I enjoyed this course, and it's different approach to more technical cyber courses. My only comment would be that the quiz content would be more broad, and not relate directly back to smaller quizzes in each lecture. In other words, to allow for more thinking on the topic relating to the readings, and understanding of the materials, since this is not a cut and dry cyber course, it is quite subjective. Even short answer would be welcome. Other than that I gained a lot of context to cyber security overall from this course.

This was a very good course (4.5/5.0). One area that could be improved would be the discussion of industrial control systems (ICS). On lecture briefly mentions STUXNET and SCADA, but this was rather incomplete discussion. A very recent incident that could have been used was the attack on the Ukraine Power grid as a demo of a cyber attack against infrastructure. https://ics-cert.us-cert.gov/alerts/IR-ALERT-H-16-056-01?_mc=sm_dr_editor_kellyjacksonhiggins
I am perhaps biased toward this area, since this is my field of work.

I'd say it has been interesting for me as a graduate of International Relations. The readings are also superb. I gave 4 stars because the lectures were not the most interactive or interesting ones I have seen. They are practically reading off scripts, hence, my advice would be turning up the playback speed to 1.5 or 1.75 and read the transcript. It is much faster to absorb this way. I finished the whole course in just 2 weeks, had participated fully in all the discussions and read/studied the readings in detail.

International Cyber Conflict course provides a great insight into increasingly relevant topic. The course is very well structured to help even a beginner student to understand broad range of issues such as different cyber terms, cyberspace and government, conflict and cooperation, international law and the problems of attribution. I would certainly recommend this course to anyone interested in this field.
(To give the full 5 stars, I would appreciate a mention of the works of Thomas Rid, John Stone or Libicki.)

readings should be checked, some are missing.
at least a question in the final exam does not match with the same question in the quizzes:
"basic lessons for international cooperation? - all of the above:
understanding how other party views the issue is important; both should have same understanding of consequences
strategies for what to do that does not involve mutual destruction (govening policies for when to use cyber weapons)
developing arms control treaties with positive sum scenarios"

Course in not only just about theory of cyber security .But also ,It also accommodates psychological view to cyber world . This makes it more interesting .The brief part of law related to cyber security buttress the content maturity .However, More information on privacy should be added .If done ,course is a 5 star Course .Moreover, every lecture gives information.So, efficiently crafted out of course .Overall,it's worth taking and worth time spending

The class was interesting, and the topics were presented in an understandable format. The lectures appropriately covered the information noted within the syllabus. The earlier lectures were more helpful from a technical perspective than the later lectures. The final lessons covered a lot of theory regarding international political considerations associated with cyber risks.

cette formation m'a permis de comprendre qui sont les différents acteurs en matière de cyber guerre, les difficultés juridiques existantes pour punir les coupables, la difficulté a prouver l'origine d'une attaque, et les voies d'accord ou de traités à établir en s'inspirant de l'histoire des guerres passées pour tenter de trouver des accords permettant un consensus universel.

The topic of the course is very interesting, the readings were important, but some of the reading were based on a book, that I had to purchase. Was a very useful course, but was a little bit tiring, videos with 12 minutes with too much theory but less pratical examples. But was a good experience. I would like to thanks the professors, that made this course.

Course was ok. However, some of questions were not clear based on excerpt from support video. For example, quiz #1 question 7. Course was "general" overview of very important subject matter of Cyber Conflicts. Looking forward to a more specific and detailed course structure. PS: A course concerning Cyberwar in Space would be quite interesting.

The course is really good and you do not need any prior background. Just the will to learn is sufficient. The only thing is that some of the sessions both the tutors are not confidant in what they want to express. But apart from that the course is really good.

nice course. however would have liked more specific examples of cyber conflicts along with how they were resolved to each country's satisfaction ( if there are any such examples to look at ). Thank you to you all for putting this course together.

Very interesting course, but the exams might be a bit more difficult. I would have appreciate to have to dig more on the subject by homeworks as text writing. But it is a great introduction on International Cyber Conflicts

Solid course, easy to follow along, keep up and pass. 100 percent of the content is available online for free, but what a great opportunity to focus on what you want to learn and not searching for everything.

Parts are thin on detail. This is a good and broad overview but lacks in-depth information of use to cyber security specialists. Still, a good course to start with if you plan to move forward.

Great introduction course to such a complex topic, however i believe the literature could be updated to more recent cases and a more international perspective, not just the U.S.
