Cyber defense policy, privacy, ethics; network threat defense, intrusion detection systems, intro to penetration testing, OS security principles, system/network admin, cloud, mobile and IoT security; overview of security planning, management and incident response. Prerequisite: CS 166 or CS 266.
Dates: July 6 - August 13, 2021
This course builds on the material covered in CS166 - Cybersecurity Principles, with an emphasis on cyber defense. Topics include cyber defense policy, privacy and ethics; network threat defense, intrusion detection and prevention systems, intro to penetration testing, operating system security principles, system/network admin basics, as well as cloud, mobile and IoT security. The course concludes with an overview of security planning, management and incident response. Note: we will use the same textbook as CS166, but please budget for a $90 virtual lab fee. Prior programming experience is expected, particularly proficiency in Python. Prerequisites: CS166 [which has CS021 and CS008]
