CSC 390 - Cyber Threats and Security

This multi-disciplinary course will cover principles of computer security and vulnerability in order to investigate the societal impact and public perception of specific instances of cyber attack, crimes and intrusion.  Targets of such attacks range from individuals (hate crimes and cyber-bullying) to systems that are critical to our national infrastructure (e.g., commerce, communication, transportation, defense and power generation).  We will examine motives and incentives to exploit software systems, how software systems are secured, and the growing cyber security industry-economy.  Satisfies Global Issues General Education requirement.
