WSQ1: Introduction and ACI

Introduction to Computer and Information Security

Watch these videos and then  please find your resources. I highly recommend that you follow Bruce Schneier, Brian Krebs and others in the security field.

Availability, Confidentiality, and Integrity

Three key concepts here in computing security in availability, confidentiality, and integrity. Watch this video but you want to dive much deeper on this over the semester.

Your assignment should you choose to accept it

Research on your own about availability, confidentiality, and integrity and write a blog post (include your references, images, videos) about your thoughts on the topic as it stands now.

Bonus Video with Maggie

Maggie Jauregui graduated from our program a few years ago. This is her presentation at DEF CON 22. We had the privilege to have Maggie join us last year in a Google Hangout with the course and perhaps we can do that again this year.
