Cybersecurity: A Systems Approach

Course Description

As many business sectors become increasingly information-centric and network-reliant, cyber security becomes a critical pillar of the enterprise. This course explores information security vulnerabilities and how to approach cyber security resilience as a complex system. Effective frameworks for assessing and managing information security within an enterprise architecture, including systems engineering, are examined. Conduct workshop exercises to practice newly learned techniques for identifying vulnerabilities, defining threats, assessing risk, and designing a security plan.
