CIS 4385 - Intro to Info Security Sys
Information systems must be protected from hackers and crackers trying to break into the systems and immobilize e-businesses and other sites using, for example, denial of service attacks. Electronic business transactions and other forms of online communications necessitated the need for security, integrity, and privacy of our data and communication resources. Increasingly, both internal and external computer and network threats motivate the need for implementing cost-effective security apparatuses to protect our information and information systems assets. The course introduces students to the theory and practice of security, aspects of information systems security such as access control, hacks and attacks, systems and program intrusion detection, cryptography, networks and distributed systems security, worms and viruses, and internal secure applications. Students explore key security threats, solutions and legal issues, and implement network security tools in hands-on lab exercises. Upon completion, the student will have a better understanding of computer and network security issues. Restricted to CIS majors.
