HACS101
Applied Cybersecurity Foundations
Credits: 2
Grad Meth: Reg
Prerequisite: Minimum grade of C- in HACS100.
Restriction: Must be a student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Living-Learning Program.
Prepares students for team research that will be conducted in HACS 200. Students gain an understanding across the breadth of cybersecurity including system monitoring, networking basics and penetration testing. An applied approach to statistics is also included to prepare students to assess the data collected for their research projects. The course is conducted with a hands-on approach applying virtual environments to practice the concepts learned in the technical lectures each week.
Restriction: Must be a student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Living-Learning Program. Prerequisite: HASC100
HACS202
Group Project in Cybersecurity
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg
Restriction: Must be a first-year student in the ACES (Advanced Cybersecurity Experience for Students) Minor Program; and cannot have been an ACES Living-Learning Program student (i.e., have taken HACS100 and HACS102).
The group project in this course will combine technical, analytical, and communication skills, further engaging students in the practice of cybersecurity. Students will learn about design concepts and data analysis as they engage in a team project designing, deploying, and collecting and analyzing data from a honeypot. The hands-on nature of the course will give students experiential insight about how and why attackers attack and how to engage in protective measures to prevent attacks.
