iPodia ENGR 499: Privacy, Security, and Policy in the Age of the Internet

By May 1, 2019 May 5th, 2019 Announcements

USC Viterbi’s iPodia program invites you to register for ENGR 499, Privacy, Security, and Policy in the Age of the Internet for Fall 2019. This 3-unit class is open to USC undergraduate students from all majors and will be held on Wednesdays between 4PM and 7PM.

The class covers providing security, privacy, and governance for internet-enabled technologies in our rapidly globalizing world. Because of its global focus, it emphasizes cross-cultural differences in perspective and will offer linked lectures and a combined classroom with universities in China and Korea and other institutions in the U.S. The class will be led by Prof. Clifford Neuman, director of USC’s Center for Computer Systems Security and professor in the Department of Computer Science and the Information Sciences Institute.

The class will balance coverage of both technical (e.g. how security is implemented) and non-technical (e.g. public policy, law, social, and communications) components. Undergraduate students at all levels and from all majors at USC are encouraged to enroll.

In the course, you will attend lectures that use videoconferencing technology to facilitate live interactions with classmates around the world and participate with global teams to exchange perspectives and work collaboratively on innovative projects. You will be engaged in intensive interaction with global peers from other universities including:

Peking University, China
Shanghai Jiaotong University, China
Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea
At least one additional university in the U.S.

If you have any question regarding this course, please feel free to contact Prof. Neuman (bcn@isi.edu).
