Who is this class for: This course was designed for learners who currently work in the cybersecurity career field, are interested in working in the cybersecurity career field, or are just curious about the topic. While there are no specific prerequisites for this course, it does assume some common understanding about computers and the Internet. Similarly, while this is mostly a non-technical course, it does require analytical and problem-solving skills on the part of the learner. This course provides a general overview of cybersecurity as it relates to critical infrastructure protection and homeland security. In addition to examining various cybersecurity policies as they apply to the water, electricity, aviation, and Internet infrastructures, this course relates those practices to the broader mission of critical infrastructure protection identifying "who's who and what do they do". This course seeks to demonstrate the intimate relationship between homeland security and cybersecurity. If you are ready to pry open that Pandora's box, then this course is for you. I look forward to seeing you in the lectures. Cheers!

Highly recommended for anyone looking to understand DHS.

Un excelente curso

This course offers an easy-to-digest introductory survey of cybersecurity surrounding the water and electricity critical infrastructures. It's just detailed enough to be interesting and informative without being so esoteric and involved as to disincent somebody from continuing on in the field. Good job.
