Cyber intelligence is the collection and analysis of information about cyber adversaries’ (also known as hackers, cyber threat actors) motivations, capabilities, geopolitical aspirations and activities in the cyber and physical domains to support decision making about cyber security.  Students use analytical methodologies, risk assessment models, and cyber security frameworks to develop common vocabulary to support technical and managerial discussions about cyber threats. 

Course
Cyber-Physical Industry Updated!

The goal of this course is to familiarize the student with the elements of automated production systems from both traditional and modern (cyber-physical) perspectives, reflecting the long (20-40 year) asset lifecycles commonly seen in large manufacturing plants in both discrete and process industries.

This second module, last half of the Ethics for the Cyber Age course, looks into practical issues that impact established ethical standards and befuddle today’s information workers and organizations. Issues such as data privacy, intellectual property, and social responsibility have long existed, whereas artificial intelligence and evolving professional codes of ethics are relatively new.
