MGMT 8550 - Security Management and Risk Assessment♦


(4 cr.) Reliable, secure transfer of information is vital to the operation and management of all businesses. The information transfer process, however, has presented a series of challenges as modern technology and the Internet have transformed the way business is conducted. Students in this course examine the need for security measures, policies, and careful assessment to ensure data integrity in electronic commerce. They explore management aspects of information security from a business perspective as well as the implications of information security risks faced by organizations. Students learn ways to identify threats and implement safeguards on corporate networks and the Internet. They also explore topics on the return on security investment, business continuity planning, development of security policies, and information security auditing. (Prerequisite(s): [RSCH 8250, RSCH 8251, RSCH 8350, RSCH 8351, RSCH 8450, or RSCH 8451] and MGMT 8990.)
