Information Security Policies and Strategies (PUBP 6725)
This course introduces students to the policy and management aspects of cybersecurity. It is divided into four modules. The first involves basic concepts and definitions regarding policy, governance, and threats; the second deals with cybersecurity management and policy at the organizational level; the third deals with cybersecurity public policy at the national level; and the fourth deals with cyber conflict, policy, and diplomacy at the transnational level. This course situates cybersecurity in the overall Internet ecosystem.
Flexible core course requirement is a common requirement for all students in the OMS Cybersecurity degree program and is designed to enhance breadth. To meet this, a student must select one required course from a specialization track that is different from the track in which he or she is enrolled.
