Cyber security is a global issue with local impact.

This course introduces top security threats, challenges and countermeasures in cyber space. The course is broadly divided into five blocks i.e., Usable Security, Software Security, Cryptography, Hardware Security and Trust Models. Additionally, the course will also cover the following topics:
