Informatics, Regulatory Aspects of Information Security, Second Cycle, 7.5 Credits

Standards, laws and other regulatory aspects are extremely important for the development of high quality information security management systems. These regulations are used both as a means to understand some fundamental requirements in society but regulations can also be key elements for the development of different technical and organisational security measures in order to ensure secure handling of information. The course also includes information security policies, which are seen as an important part of the information security management system. The students will be trained to analyse, use and develop an information security policy based on relevant standards, laws, regulations as well as previous knowledge about policy development. Students will also train their ability to make ethical assessments relevant for the management of information security.
