    Asset Security:
    This course introduces information technology's physical assets and their security. Information and software must be protected from threats, such as fire, water, and people with malicious intent. Through comparison of various physical access controls, and security practices, students of this course will be equipped with knowledge and strategies to prevent damage, maintain optimum environments and manage electrical problems.

    Communications and Network Security:
    This course contains a discussion of communications and network security. It covers the different types of networks and different transmission technologies. It also covers the two main models that govern how networks work: the OSI model and the TCP/IP model, as well as their related layers. The course includes a detailed discussion of the many protocols that allow networks and network devices to communicate with one another and includes a discussion of firewalls and wireless networks.

    Identity and Access Management:
    This course introduces students to the principles of access controls, beginning with the central modes of information security and continuing through various attacks and defenses. The course presents different kinds of authentication techniques, how they work, and how they are distinguished from each other.

    Security and Risk Management:
    This course contains a discussion of the role of governance and risk management in information security. It looks at the policies and standards that are needed to operate an effective information security function and to oversee good information security practices. The course also includes a look at how modern organizations manage information security risks and how to conduct a risk analysis. It concludes by examining the process for providing information security training and education.

    Security Assessment and Testing:
    This course contains a discussion of security assessment and testing, focusing on potential disruptions that can affect organizations and how they can be addressed with assessments and plans. Students will have the opportunity to practice how to assess the impact of disasters that may arise as well as to develop their own versions of these plans.

    Security Engineering:
