CMIS 4102 - Information Security Techniques I♦


(5 cr.) Today, the risk of hackers infiltrating networks and computer systems is high and all organizations are at risk of potential exploitation or data theft. In this course, students examine information security attacks and defenses at the individual computer level and explore physical and software intrusions and defenses. Students learn best practices in configuring and maintaining systems to minimize the risk of compromise. They engage in application and discussion assignments focusing on topics such as viruses, Trojan horses, physical compromise, stolen credentials, and related protective measures.
  (Prerequisite(s): CMIS 4101.)
