Description
CYBER SECURITY POLICY
In our increasingly interconnected world, nearly everyone is reliant upon information technology as they go about their daily lives. This reliance on technology and people's related desire for immediate access to information, provides an opportunity for various actors to advance their personal goals, whether it be for political purposes, financial or other criminal endeavors, or as a platform to advance their social causes. As such, the need for solutions to this ever-growing problem goes beyond just technical solutions. In the course, students will learn how to approach cyber security from a policy and planning perspective. Students will be introduced to various threats and learn how to develop 'plans' at the operational and strategic level to mitigate them. Students will be introduced to various governmental policies, strategies and directives from both the US and non-US perspective that have been crafted to address the cyber threat. Finally, students will learn about the various governmental and non-governmental organizations that are working to deal with the daily challenges of cyber warfare.
