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.
The graduate of the course will understand basic principles of IS/IT security, he will be able to make basic analyses and he will have a review on technologies and security architecture used in enterprise practice.
Prerequisites
Basic knowledge of Windows and Linux operating systems, text editors (vi, vim, or nano), virtualization platforms (VirtualBox) and combinatorics.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

Personal computer hardening and review by penetration testing. Personal computer or home network security policy.
