CYBER ALGORITHMS THAT CHANGED THE FUTURE

CSE1ACF

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject introduces core algorithms in cybersecurity that support confidentiality, integrity and availability in information systems. Students will be exposed to the conception, design and implementation processes for new algorithms as they relate to cybersecurity. Real-world case studies from intelligence analysis, fraud, databases, networks and firewalls will be used to illustrate how algorithms can be applied to solve problems. This subject does not require prior knowledge of computer programming.
