ISSC331 - Legal Issues in Information Security


This course examines information security issues and the law. The rapid growth of technology has given rise to legal issues surrounding technology. Information security is the practice of protecting information to ensure the goals of confidentiality, integrity and availability are met. Information security makes sure that accurate information is available to authorized individuals when it is needed. When governments, private organizations, and individuals do a poor job of protecting the information entrusted to them, legislatures respond with new laws. The course will examine key conflicts involving technology and the legal system to include: privacy issues, civil, criminal, and administrative law, Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), Sarbanes Oxley, and information security governance. This course examines current literature on such topics.
