Prerequisites
This course aims at students in their second year of study, getting them exposed to the elementary aspects of IT (cyber) security and cryptography - fundamentals of algebra and programming are therefore expected.
Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
there are 80 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
Course objectives
The aim is to teach the students to:
explain the importance of information privacy and to illustrate negative impacts of its breach by examples;
show advantages or disadvantages of basic IT security and privacy methods;
judge impact of IT deployment on personal data and to judge ethical aspects of considered solutions;
explain the importance of proper ways to security from risk analysis, through security policy up to the development and management of mechanisms - namely those based on cryptography;
assess suitability of deploying selected tools for security and privacy support.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course students will be able to:
explain the importance of information privacy and to illustrate negative impacts of its breach by examples;
show advantages or disadvantages of basic IT security and privacy methods;
judge impact of IT deployment on personal data and to judge ethical aspects of considered solutions;
explain the importance of proper ways to security from risk analysis, through security policy up to the development and management of mechanisms, namely of cryptographic algorithms;
assess suitability of deploying selected tools for security and privacy support.
