Informatics, Applied Information Security Management, Second Cycle, 12 Credits

This course deals with how to manage information security in practice. Thus, we take an overall perspective on how to govern and guide information security from a manager's perspective. The teaching is mainly case-based which means that scenarios from real-world examples are used as a point of departure for the six major areas we will cover: i) organizational management systems and information security management systems and their relation; ii) how to implement management system based on relevant ISO-standards; iii) how to carry out an information asset classification; iv) how to carry out a risk analysis; v) business management considerations; and vi) how to target a presentation for top management.
After completing the course the students will be able to carry out relevant information security assessments. The students will also be able to assess consequences of investments in information security and to communicate this assessment to top management.
