 Adversarial Thinking

  • To anticipate and defend against adversaries, one must understand their behavior, motivation, capabilities, and psychology. This course will prepare students for facing threats in the real-world in a much greater context than cybersecurity alone. This course is in development and will be available Spring 2021.


CYBR 5300 Introduction to Cybersecurity

  • Introduces core concepts in cybersecurity including confidentiality, integrity, authentication, risk management, access control, identity and much more. The concepts will be applied to both traditional information technology (IT) systems and cyber physical systems (CPS). The course provides a cybersecurity foundation that will allow practitioners in other fields apply to understand cybersecurity trade-offs and will also provide interested students with a basis to further study in cybersecurity. At the conclusion of the course, students should have a solid foundation in cybersecurity with some initial hands-on experience. We recommend this course to be taken in the student's first semester.

We recommend this course to be taken in a student's first semester.

Students may petition to substitute courses from other departments for TCP requirements. Courses from Law, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Leeds School of Business, Political Science, Sociology, Applied Mathematics, Engineering Management, and more may be petitioned to substitute for Core and Advanced Elective courses. While not all petitions are guaranteed to be accepted, TCP is eager to allow students to craft their own education. Petitions must be approved prior to the semester start date.

Course numbers and titles are subject to change. Most TCP courses are offered online to current CU students via main-campus sections and to nondegree students via Continuing Education's Extraordinary program.
