    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a great introduction to the different tools/applications an Information Security engineer (or even just someone interested in Information Security) would need to get started in the field. You learn how to set up firewall rules (both at router-level and host-based), how to set up and use Intrusion Detection Systems, how to do basic forensics investigations, and so much more. However, it is very dependent on your individual initiative - most of the learning happens by watching videos/doing lab work. The instructors mainly just provide some guidance.

    Course highlights:

    The labs were the highlights of this course - as I mentioned above, I learned how to set up firewall rules (both at router-level and host-based), how to set up and use Intrusion Detection Systems, how to do basic forensics investigations, etc. I learned how to troubleshoot in Unix as well (super important since sometimes the labs don't work as expected).

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be prepared to learn things on your own. Leverage the discussion boards. Take full advantage of your access to the TA!
