Protection and Security of Information Systems

Course Description

The objective of the course is to get to know the principles of information security, risks and threats to information systems, methods of their protection, and procedures for measuring, evaluating and certifying the achieved level of information security. In order to implement this content, procedures and methods for risk assessment, management and control that breach the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information systems are considered. Norms to establish information security and revision of IS security will be explained. Models of security management and control of process flows are specially elaborated as a basis for realization of safety mechanisms. Security mechanisms and security architecture related to databases, distributed databases and e-business systems, as well as standards, procedures for building and evaluating confidential systems are discussed.
