IT 690B International Perspective on Network Security

Not open to students who have taken IS 641, but those students are encouraged to go on the trip.

Prerequisite: Permission of the instructor. Students who have taken an introductory course in Security may participate in the travel part of the course and will have to register for a zero credit field study (CIS 099). This course can be used as an IS free elective.

Course Description: The importance of network security is increasingly becoming a global concern. It is imperative to have an understanding of how the international community addresses network security to insure the reliability of our own data communications infrastructure. The online portion of this course will provide an introduction to the technology of telecommunications and networking. Topics will include techniques and policies for securing networks, and an overview of cybercrime and its prevention. Abroad, students will participate in seminars with academic and industry professionals to get the international perspective.
