Paul from Germany

"Thank you for the notification that I aced the final evaluation.

In the 18 to 20 years I have been using the web to trouble shoot computers and repair them, I have never seen such comprehensive security articles. Heimdal Security has my utmost thanks for providing these security lessons. I pass your lessons along to the general public when I service their computers. I also encourage everyone to use Heimdal Security. I learned a lot from your security lessons, and eagerly looked forward to the next lesson. I got interested in computer security after having my credit card # stolen many years ago because of a Flash Player exploit. I asked Lawrence Abrams the owner of Bleeping Computer to offer your Heimdal Security software on his site. Thank you so much for the incredible information you provided in your Cyber Security course. I personally cannot think of anything to change in your security course."

I live & breathe cyber security, and I'm using my background in marketing & communication to help others be more aware of cyber threats lurking around the web (and how to get protected, of course!).
