Content

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.
