Cybersecurity in Context is a three-credit course housed in the School of Law and Information. As such, it is open to law and graduate students, and undergraduates by permission.
Based on a course in the I School’s online Masters of Information and Cybersecurity (MICS) program, Cybersecurity in Context is a podium lecture course (with discussion) that explores the broad range of social-political-economic-legal-ethical-military and other considerations that characterize the cybersecurity landscape. Thus, it is a wide-ranging introduction to cybersecurity that explains why cybersecurity is such a difficult policy challenge. One needs no technical background or background in law to take it. The course has modules to introduce non-technical students to core internet technologies such as routing and BGP.
