|BUS-593-01||Bus Info Security/Continuity (3 )||
||Gomaa, Ahmed A|
Man-made and natural incidents happen within corporations every day. Many of these are caused by security breaches. Some occur suddenly and, if not handled quickly, can cascade out of control to become crises and disasters that can threaten the very existence of a corporation. Therefore, Business Information Security and Continuity are major topics in all corporations. From assuring the safety of the firm's workers to the firm's property to the firm's information assets, pro-active security measures must be "everywhere." Additionally, since disasters are often created by security breaches as well as other factors, business continuity, including IT continuity is another key topic in the 21st century. This course involves detailed examinations of a systems-wide perspective of information security, beginning with the strategic planning process. It then provides insights into the various technical and administrative aspects of Information Security and Assurance. It identifies the key issues associated with protecting information assets, determining the levels of protection and response to security incidents, and designing a consistent, reasonable information security system, with appropriate intrusion detection and reporting features. Students are exposed to a wide spectrum of security activities, methods, methodologies, and procedures for the inspection and protection of information assets, detection of and reaction to threats to information assets, and examination of pre- and post-incident procedures, technical and managerial responses and an overview of the Information Security Planning and Staffing functions.
