Technology has penetrated almost every aspect of our personal and business interactions. Surprisingly, most people still fail to understand the potentially catastrophic consequences of security breaches in digital systems. That failure of understanding makes humans the weakest link in the chain of information security (IS). Although IS is a relatively new field of computer science, it has already had a profound impact on business, a direct result of the interconnected nature of the World Wide Web. With each passing day, from bank accounts to refrigerators, we are becoming increasingly electronically interlaced. The field of information security covers all activity in this fast-growing and quickly changing aspect of modern electronic life, including cryptography and its study of ancient ciphers and modern public-key (asymmetric) cryptosystems, secure software development, Web application security, and denial of service (DoS) attacks. Needless to say, information security is an exciting field to be involved with at this point in time.
A typical information security course may involve any combination of the following topics:
Schneier's Applied Cryptography offers a great introduction to cryptography from a developer's perspective while Ferguson's Practical Cryptography achieves the same goal without focusing on code. Anderson's Security Engineering is often quoted as the bible of information security, offering an extremely wide coverage of diverse topics in sufficient depth, while presenting numerous real world incidents. You can always stay up to date with the field by visiting Security Focus and SearchSecurity, or Schneier's blog for some insightful essays. For academic resources you should look into conference proceedings and journals published by ACM, IEEE, Springer, Elsevier, and Google Scholar, or some of the top computer science departments offering security courses such as Stanford, MIT, and CMU.
Since we have tutors in all Information Security related topics, we can provide a range of different services. Our online Information Security tutors will:
With these capabilities, our college Information Security tutors will give you the tools you need to gain a comprehensive knowledge of Information Security you can use in future courses.
Our tutors are just as dedicated to your success in class as you are, so they are available around the clock to assist you with questions, homework, exam preparation and any Information Security related assignments you need extra help completing.
In addition to gaining access to highly qualified tutors, you'll also strengthen your confidence level in the classroom when you work with us. This newfound confidence will allow you to apply your Information Security knowledge in future courses and keep your education progressing smoothly.
Because our college Information Security tutors are fully remote, seeking their help is easy. Rather than spend valuable time trying to find a local Information Security tutor you can trust, just call on our tutors whenever you need them without any conflicting schedules getting in the way.
