Design for Security
Capability in the design of systems that meet security goals is an increasingly important skill. This course explores how cost-effective solutions to security needs can be achieved by following well-established architectural practices and detailed security principles. Central to these considerations is meeting the requirements with established solutions, and striking a balance between security and other system requirements.
