Cybersecurity
Brief Description
The Cybersecurity short course provides you with practical guidance on how to think like a cybersecurity expert by analysing and minimising the risk of security incidents that can possibly appear in an organisation. The course specifically covers various aspects of security services that include identification and authentication, authorisation, confidentiality, integrity and privacy. You will also become familiar with the fundamental concepts of threats, vulnerabilities, risks and countermeasures; the mechanisms that are used to implement different security services (such as encryption and hash codes); regulatory measures (such as the NIST Framework and ISO 27000); and analysis and recommendations for security improvements
