Not a MOOC.  But several schools now have graduate programs in security.  Off the top of my head, Georgia Tech, UAB, GMU ..


They might offer some shorter courses as well, for working professionals.   Take a look.

Thank you Christopher, Compton and Suresh, that was helpful.


I am still looking for more.


Does anyone want to recommend any MOOC?
