Cyber security is not just a technology problem, it is also a people problem as people are central to both the risk relating to many cyber threats, and also to mitigating this risk. This course provides insights, strategies and skills in mitigating control weaknesses relating to human behaviour in the organisation that exposes business to cyber security threats.
This course introduces students to finding and fixing vulnerabilities, encryption, intrusion detection and managing cyber risks. The application of appropriate work practices that support good cyber security posture in software applications development, systems administration and information system professional areas are reviewed.
