The goal of the Textbook Transformation for Computer Science Foundation Courses project is to transform all sections of three core Computer Science (CS) courses into affordable no-cost courses that use OERs to help each student save the cost of textbooks during completion of their degree requirements. The three target courses are: CS II (CPSC 1302), Data Structures (CPSC 2108) and Information Security (CPSC 2106). These transformations will be adopted by all sections in the Total Systems (TSYS) School of Computer Science. These courses are currently required for all Computer Science and Information Technology majors so every student in the TSYS School of Computer Science will benefit from the transformation. This course Libguide curates specific selected OER materials for the course.
CPSC 2106: Information Security
Overview of Computer and Network Security (3-0-3). Prerequisite: CPSC 1105, MISM 2115, CPSC 1301 or permission of instructor. This course introduces the main hardware and software components of a modern computer system, investigates the vulnerabilities and threats associated with each component, and suggests prudent measures to defend against these threats. This course requires no programming, and assumes only an ability to use one or more of the Microsoft Office products.
