The course also covers security technology specific to safeguarding data and information assets.

Web Security

Examining issues involved in protecting web-based applications from external threats while safeguarding customer privacy and accessibility, students in this course develop strategies that support systems and business goals.

This course provides an in-depth look at the kind of risk factor analysis that must be performed in order to design a flexible and comprehensive security plan. Topics include assessing threats, developing countermeasures, protecting information, using auditing practices to verify compliance with policies and procedures, and building a case for presentation in private and public settings.
