This course is divided into 4 parts:

The first part acts as an introduction to the course, it provides you with definitions such as, Information Systems, Information Security, the purpose of Information Security, the CIA Triad and AAA .

The second part speaks about Risk Management and Qualitative & Quantitative Risk Analysis. We also talk about Contingency Planning in the case of a disaster or disruption of services. 

The third part is where, in my opinion, things get serious, as it contains a very simple and clear explanation on how to protect yourself from threats to your Information System along with REAL LIFE EXAMPLES to help you better understand the concept. We basically talk about Physical, Data, Systems & Network, Wireless and Web Application Security. Also provided in this section is how to develop an Information System Policy along with examples of policies, and how to conduct a Security Awareness Training.
