SUPA Introduction to Information Security is our Cybersecurity course that corresponds to the Syracuse University IST 323 course. Students who complete this course earn both credit at AHS and through Syracuse University.
IST323 is intended to teach fundamental elements in information security and introduce the key areas of security challenges, countermeasures, and real-life examples. Topics include security properties, vulnerabilities, cryptography, security policies, access control, authentication, firewalls, wireless security, Internet security protocols, security management, security evaluation, and case studies. Students will also have hands-on experiences in information security through customized online labs.
This course is available to juniors and seniors at AHS. Students are encouraged to complete either Introduction to Computer Science or AP Computer Science Principles prior to enrollment; however, special cases are always considered.
