Course level: "Upper Division"
"This course explores the evolution from information security to cybersecurity, policy and cybersecurity development, and the relationships between business and public- or private-sector organizations in meeting the challenges of cybersecurity threats. Students will be introduced to the legal and regulatory requirements for internal network and internet security as they apply to both business and personal use. Vulnerabilities of both the organization and the individual will be reviewed, as well as the processes and controls for mitigating cybersecurity threats. The need for an IT audit and risk assessment will also be explored as part of the vulnerability or mitigation process, as well as the need for development of an organization-wide cybersecurity policy."
Purchase of LabPaq® Hands-on Lab Kits are required for this course.
