The main goal of the course is to provide students with a comprehensive overview of computer and network security issues including the numerous types of attacks computers are vulnerable to, the types of attacker profiles, and the hardware and software defense solutions available. The course begins with an overview of the subject including security goals, the importance of security, intruder profiles, and defense mechanisms. The topics subsequently covered include security and the individual personal computer in both the home and corporate environments. This includes protecting the single device from the threats of data theft, viruses and spyware, techniques of authentication and security patch management. Next, corporate security is presented including policy issues involving e-mail, Internet access, passwords, Incident Response and Disaster Recovery. Internet Security and Network Security are addressed focusing on the threats to WAN and LAN networks and methods of protecting each type of network. Students will learn to apply these concepts to each particular setting and know how and why they are adapted from one environment to another.
