Cyber System Vulnerabilities and Risk Assessment

Course #EC4715

Est.imated Completion Time: 3 months


The course utilizes reverse engineering principles to identify and assess vulnerabilities in electronic, communication, and control systems and analyze risk to provide tradeoffs. Vulnerabilities in cyber systems based on genetic, developmental, and those caused by system overload are presented. Widely accepted industry and military standards, underlying technologies, specification mismatches and interoperability, and resource constraints are examined to identify vulnerabilities of interest. Vulnerability assessment at component and system level along with prioritization and elimination procedures are discussed. Risk analysis for secure operation of the system and relevant tradeoffs are presented. Laboratory exercises provide hands-on experience.
