This course provides an overview of analytical techniques for the documentation and evaluation of cybersecurity metrics, and the incorporation of such assessments in organizational risk management. Students will become familiar with methods for cybersecurity evaluation and the translational impacts to function and mission success of an organization (business, public administration, homeland security, etc.); as well as processes for security measurements, comparisons, and reassessments for purposes of risk management.
With successful completion of this course, students are able to: 1. Describe methods for the measurement and documentation of cybersecurity. 2. Assess the validity of these methods in various contexts. 3. Explain how future change (organizational and external) may impact such evaluations. 4. Use the concepts of these measurement and documentation methods to help evaluate proposals for new cybersecurity investments.
