Learning activities and teaching methods
Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming)
Learning outcomes
The aim of this subject is to provide students with the knowledge from the area of IS/IT security, to explain basic principles of IS/IT security evaluation and to explain meaning and content of security standards. The following topics will be discussed more detailed: principles of IS/IT security, IS/IT security component, methods of IS/IT securing, security politics, risk analysis, disaster recovery planning, security audit, the principles of IS/IT security assessments. The basic survey of principles of the modern cryptography and security technology (IDS, penetration testing, monitoring, audit, electronic signature, certificates, principles of computer networks security) is the part of this course as well.
Students will understand basic principle of IS/IT security, will be able to perform elementary security analysis and will have survey about security technologies and security architectures used in business practice.
