This course covers systems security engineering and lays a foundation for both exam preparation and security engineering.

1 hour, 48 minutes

Course description

Trust being the key word here: we can build trust into our enterprises, but it requires a good understanding of the basic principles presented in these sessions. Assurance is achieved by incorporating both risk and security management practices into all business processes. Domain 1 focuses on applying, executing and integrating security into the engineering process.
