Applied Case Course in Security (small)

In PROMIS, many courses use a case-based learning approach which allows you, at different levels, to bring your own case/ problem to the course. Case-based learning approach lessens the participation cost; you can utilize your domain-specific challenges while maximizing your end value. For this course, we have adopted an even larger case-based approach where you can work on cases and challenges that are directly reusable and relevant for your work/organization.The aim of the course is that you, either individually or in a group, identify a challenge related to security and preferably linked to your company. In the course, you will study the topic in detail, apply knowledge and receive the opportunity to deepen your problem-solving. You will be assigned one or several mentors within the relevant area during the course. They will supervise and help you plan, carry out, present, and guide you to find solutions for your real-world context challenge as part of the learning – in essence; they will be mentors.This course is suitable for professionals working in areas where software-intensive product/service development – with some connection to security/privacy/compliance as an aspect. Multiple roles are relevant, from managers, decision-makers, and leaders to engineers. The topic you select to work within the course can be almost anything security-related.

Computer Networks II

This course will provide a detailed theoretical and practical knowledge in the art of configuring and securing computer networks and create network topologies. Together with Computer Networks I, distance course (Datakommunikation i nätverk I, distanskurs) you will be covering most, but not all, of the content that are part of a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certificate. The certificate is not part of this course.

Security, Privacy and Compliance

There is an increasing concern from users regarding the use and spread of their personal data. Moreover, compliance with privacy regulations is often required and privacy should be incorporated and be “by design” when developing software-intensive products and services. Hence, privacy, as well as security and compliance have become top challenges in the development of software and software-intensive products and services. In addition, good privacy measures can improve data security and promote quality.This course introduces you to ethical, legal, and regulatory aspects of security and privacy for Software-Intensive Products and Services. You will learn about security concepts such as CIA (confidentiality, integrity, availability), privacy and non-repudiation.We will also cover various ethical issues (e.g., autonomy, confidentiality, consent, data protection, privacy). Furthermore, the course will also enable you to understand relevant data protection laws such as GDPR.
