Student Equipment Purchases
Learning experiences and assessment activities in this unit may require that students have access to specific computing equipment such as external wireless adapters capable of injecting packets (to the approximate value of $100). This equipment will also be usable in subsequent units of the course. If purchases were required, students will be informed at the start of the unit.
In SIT182 students will learn the real world practices of cyber security by solving problems based on realistic case studies. Students will explore fundamental concepts of risks in managing communication networks and choose the appropriate means to manage these risks. The unit enables students to understand threats and vulnerabilities in the context of how systems can be compromised and how we can prevent harm to systems. There will be a practical focus on how we can detect and respond to cyber attacks. The key to learning will be introducing students to practices through case studies.
To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must meet certain milestones as part of the portfolio.
