  • Tuesday 21 March 2023

This course focuses on the area of information security with the aim of introducing students to techniques for detecting and preventing computer attacks.

The course aims to develop a professional profile that enables the reduction of risks derived from computer threats in companies and public entities. Participants are expected to acquire the necessary knowledge to understand and put into practice the basic procedures of the entire security cycle: from risk measurement to forensic analysis, including system auditing and monitoring of elements.

The activity is entirely practical in nature, whereby at least 50% of the time will be based on the resolution of different cases by means of the knowledge acquired with the help of a highly qualified professional.

Previous knowledge of TCP/IP networks and Linux systems at user level is required. It is not necessary for the student to have previous knowledge of computer security.
