It is one of its kind. Thanks to Professor Dias for elaborate examples and straight forward explanation of technical IS Audit jargon. As an Internal Auditor the course is very relevant to my career and profession. Thanks to Coursera for making it possible for some of us from the other globe to learn from world class professors like Garvin Percy DIAS.
