Aims and objectives

New unit from 2023 (replaces INF30020 Info Systems Risk and Security) 
In this unit students are introduced to the approaches, technologies, and practices associated with cybersecurity in contemporary organisations. The unit engages students with the approaches and technologies applied by organisations to manage risks to their networks, applications and data from malicious attack from within the organisation itself and externally from malicious third parties. This includes the implementation of appropriate architectures, technologies as well as information management plans, risk analysis, threat and impact assessment, assurance processes, standards and frameworks. Students will learn about the legal, professional and ethical responsibilities of information risk and security management through industry-based scenarios and become familiar with approaches to information governance and assurance including the automated tools and approaches that are used by organisations.
