Information Security plays a vital role in today?s integrated networked information systems by securing an organization?s critical data and systems from inside and outside threats. This course will examine general security concepts that include: communication security, infrastructure security, operation/organizational security, basic cryptography and steganography. Students will learn and apply defacto security best practices administering clients, servers and firewalls in a dedicated computer network laboratory. Through virtualization, students will have the opportunity to assess vulnerabilities and administrate Information Security on a multitude of operating systems. Presently, the Computer and Information Sciences department has standardized on VMware as a virtualization platform. Distance Learning students will need their own computer to complete the necessary coursework. Offered Fall, Spring, Summer, DL.

Description: This course is a continuation of ECMN 205 and is designed to expand a student's knowledge of manufacturing automation and production systems and their associated controls. These complex automation systems use a variety of electrical and electronic systems to control processes that are involved in the production of almost all goods and a great many services. As a result, students need to understand the theory and operation of electronics as they apply to production systems used in industry. An essential element to all aspects of the course is safe working practices associated with the elevated voltages used in three-phase powered systems. The current National Electrical Code (NEC) is applied with particular emphasis on articles 430 and 645, as they apply to control systems. This focus is different from many other electronics courses, which typically emphasize engineering and engineering technology. Open only to matriculated Electrical Construction and Maintenance students. Offered Spring.
