CYBR  3310  Introduction to Cryptography
This course introduces the inner workings of cryptographic primitives and how to correctly use them. Specifically, the course covers cryptographic algorithms, protocols and techniques. The algorithms illustrate the art of encryption and secure hashing. The cryptographic protocols will expose the students to the world of building trust in an untrusted environment. Cryptographic techniques used in key management and algorithm choice will be explored. Lab required. Prerequisites:  ITSY 2341 and Math core complete. 3 credit hours.


CYBR  3320  Digital and Device Forensics
This course will help students understand the issues, techniques, and vulnerabilities of small scale (non-PC) digital device forensics. Emphasis will be placed on the forensically sound acquisition, preservation, analysis and presentation of small scale digital devices as evidence. Lab required. Prerequisite:  ITSY 2343. 3 credit hours.


CYBR  3330  Advanced Network Topologies and Protocols
This course examines the advanced and novel areas of networks and protocols.  Various networks will be examined with secure configurations, analysis, and response to threats. Lab required. Prerequisite:  ITSY 2343. 3 credit hours.


CYBR  3340  Cyber Crime
An examination of Cyber Crimes and other abuses arising in a cyber environment. Traditional and contemporary forms of cybercrime will be explored, including hacking, insider threat, cyberbullying, hacktivism, cyberterrorism and others. Students will learn how computers can be either the target or the tool for committing cybercrimes. In addition, sociological and psychological aspects associated with cybercrime will be examined. Lab required. Prerequisite:  ITSY 2341. 3 credit hours.


CYBR  3350  Cyber Privacy
