This course will provide students an opportunity to assess what programs are in place and their adequacy to protect information systems and technology. This assessment will include industry standards (such as ISO 27001), governmental efforts (such as the National Infrastructure Protection Plan), and interrelationships of information systems and technology to other types of critical infrastructure (such as municipal services, finance and banking, power, etc.). By looking at current best practices students will determine these programs effectiveness and what future measures may need to be developed. Students will gain hands on exercises with implementing network policies, access protection, virtualization, and network protocols.
