YOU NEED TO WRITE 250 WORDS CORRELATING my job responsibilities(ELECTRICAL ENGINEER) TO MY COURSE CYBER SECURITY
THESE ARE TOPICS COVERED IN MY COURSE
This course examines aspects of cyber security and the associated computer and network hardware and software used to identify harmful digital activities and associated actions used to prevent harmful data breaches. Students will investigate network domains such as Internet, Intranet, Extranet, and the different instantiations of Cloud Computing. Studies will include: 1) domain and network layers of the OSI model; 2) intrusion detection system (IDS)
– systems used to monitor network traffic for suspicious activity and issues alerts when such activity is discovered; 3) intrusion prevention systems (IPS) which operates much line IDS but adds a layer of security to reject (or nullify) the potentially malicious activity; 4) Honeypots – used to attract harmful activities in order to understand the mechanisms used; malicious software 6) software vulnerabilities; 7) cryptography – the practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of third parties called adversaries; 8) encryption and decryption techniques used to secure data and limit the potential for data breaches. Please see Cyber Security Knowledge Areas in this syllabus for additional details.
