BUS 5050 - Threat Assessment and Security Measures

The security manager must be equipped to identify and protect against all forms of internal and external threats. This computer lab-based course examines common security threats including hacker attacks, incursions, backdoor programs, email borne viruses, and the potential for internal sabotage. Students also learn how to anticipate and respond to such threats using an arsenal of security tools, appliances, and devices including firewalls, intrusion detection systems, vulnerability assessment systems, single sign on, virtual private networks, and authentication systems. Course work also touches on implementing practical network security measures including the importance of hardening operating systems and critical applications to eliminate vulnerabilities.
