Course Introduction

Practical Application to System Management. Learn how to securely design and manage enterprise systems utilizing mainstream operating systems Computer Security and Systems Management Specialization The course is the first half of a two-part specialization. In this specialization, we will focus on the subject of cybersecurity and security architecture, including the creation of a computer system user model, as well as an in-depth understanding of systems risk management. We will learn why these topics are important and what practices are used to ensure the proper use of cybersecurity tools and technologies. We will also discuss how these topics are taught in the academic world, and what happens when they are not taught? We will learn about techniques for "the student" (developing a strong identity and encryption strategy) and security architecture (designing a system user model and securing it) which are critical to protecting system resources. We will apply these security techniques in the context of a real world LAMP/LDP environment, and will demonstrate how to use security tokens and/or firewalls. We will focus on the topic of computers that runneth over, as well as other topics such as network security, cloud security, and mobile platform security. We will not be covering software components or how to diagnose and fix vulnerabilities. This course is the third and last course in the specialization. The specialization is an eight-week long add-on course, that includes two virtual classes and a traditional classroom class. The emphasis of the specialization is on the subjects and techniques that can be applied to protecting systems and users, whether they are running on a laptop, desktop computer

Computer security incident management Computer security incident management is an administrative function of managing and protecting computer assets, networks and information systems. These systems continue to become more critical to the personal and economic welfare of our society. Organizations (public and private sector groups, associations and enterprises) must understand their responsibilities to the public good and to the welfare of their memberships and stakeholders. This responsibility extends to having a management program for “what to do, when things go wrong.” Incident management is a program which defines and implements a process that an organization may adopt to promote its own welfare and the security of the public.

SIM supports the monitoring and incident management activities of the IT security organization […]. SEM improves security incident response capabilities. SEM processes near-real-time data from security devices, network devices and systems to provide real-time event management for security operations. […]""
Computer security incident management Incident management requires a process and a response team which follows this process. This definition of computer security incident management follows the standards and definitions described in the National Incident Management System (NIMS). The incident coordinator manages the response to an emergency security incident. In a Natural Disaster or other event requiring response from Emergency services, the "incident coordinator" would act as a liaison to the emergency services incident manager.
Automated information systems security Automated information systems security includes consideration of all computer hardware and software functions, characteristics and features; operational procedures; accountability procedures; and access controls at the central computer facility, remote computer, and terminal facilities; management constraints; physical structures and devices, such as computers, transmission lines, and power sources; and personnel and communications controls needed to provide an acceptable level of risk for the automated information system and for the data and information contained in the system. Automated information systems security also includes the totality of security safeguards needed to provide an acceptable protection level for an automated information system and for the data handled by an automated information system.
