CSE 40935 - CyberSecurity Case Studies
The availability of mission-critical web applications, computer systems, and associated infrastructure components is a major requirement for the viability of an organization. A cyber-attack or disaster could negate the capability of an organization to provide uninterrupted computer system availability and service to its customers, suppliers and vendors. This includes computer systems that control critical U.S. infrastructure (i.e., transportation, electric grid, energy systems). Students will learn about the threats and vulnerabilities that could impact mission critical systems and the countermeasures that can be implemented to reduce/mitigate risk. Techniques will be taught for conducting a risk assessment, preparing a security architecture blueprint, and developing a continuity plan. Skills will be acquired through a series of case studies, workshops, and projects. Students will work in groups. Workshops include: performing a business impact analysis, preparing an incident response plan, developing strategies (including cloud services) for systems and network recovery, and preparing a disaster recovery plan according to industry standards and best practices.
