Security and the Data Ecosystem

This talk will focus on the key asset for all businesses: data.  We will review how and where data are, or may be, stored in an information system. The threats to data and the mechanisms that could expose those data to unauthorised and/or unauthenticated users are reviewed.

Examples will be provided of techniques that have been used to exploit holes in security and the techniques that can be used to mitigate these risks. The examples will be relevant and applicable to any information system that an organisation is running.

We will also present how these topics will be covered in the BSc (Hons) Business Information Systems degree.

  • On the spot eligibility assessment for standard applications
