Cyber Security encompasses everything that pertains to protecting our personal information, intellectual property, data, and industry information systems from theft and damage attempted by criminals and adversaries. It is based on the principles of maintaining confidentiality, integrity and availability.

Course Overview

Skilled cyber security professionals are in high demand. Organizations need employees who have a good understanding of the vulnerabilities, threats and risks that are inherent in IT devices, software, networks, and infrastructure.  

This course is designed for students with some background working in information technology – working professionals looking to enhance their knowledge and explore various domains of cyber security. The lectures will cover the 8 domains of cyber security as recognized internationally in a Common Body of Knowledge for Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP).  Students who wish to earn the CISSP designation should take this course as part of their preparation and study plan to prepare for the CISSP exam. This course will include a detailed textbook to study the concepts as well as access to hundreds of practice exam questions. 

We will not include hands on technical labs in this course as it is designed to educate the students on the foundations of security programs and the complex interconnections of the various domains of cyber security.    

Students who wish to sit for the official CISSP exam should visit www.isc2.org for more information on the requirements and fees. The registration fee for the official CISSP exam is not included in this lecture course.
