About this Course

In this course, we'll explore the most current methods for securing information and information systems from policies and procedures to technologies and audit. Leading experts will share best practices across a range of topics: securing mobile workforces, developing security metrics, managing electronic evidence, coping with e-crime and e-discovery, securing information in the cloud and preparing information security leaders.

We'll discuss information security strategies in a range of contexts: individual privacy, legal/regulatory compliance, business imperatives, social and geopolitical impacts, national security implications, medical health record confidentiality and integrity and evolving technologies.

Students learn through real-world projects. You'll leave the course prepared to take on information security responsibilities and leadership roles. 

The course is designed, in part, to meet the education and training standards described in CNSS 4011 and 4012.
