Data security and privacy necessary for today¿s business environment. Common vulnerabilities, securing data, encryption, policies, privacy management, standards, and compliance.

When the course was created, "Data Security and Privacy" was only a part of the original course.  Over time, the "Data Security and Privacy" topic has become increasingly significant to the business world, while the other topics have become less important to our MBA and MAC students. MBA 511 is now focusing on data security and privacy throughout the entire course.  Therefore, the title and catalog needs to be officially changed to reflect the updated content.  


An additional online section of the course has been added, so method of delivery needs to be updated accordingly.

mlnosbis 10/13/2015: Possible consultation with Computer Science- CSC 743: Secure Data Management.

ghodge 10/25/2015: Department should edit second student learning outcome to change "understand" to an actionable word. Send to computer science for consultation. Send to ABGS reviewers after edit and consultation.

jbearp 1/10/2016: Reworded the second learning objective originally written as "Understand how new technologies relate to data security and privacy. " It is now written more specifically (with action words) in two separate learning objectives: "Analyze security/privacy practices to ensure systems and data are protected before a security incident occurs." and "Apply Privacy by Design concepts when implementing business strategies and analytic studies to mitigate security incidents before they occur." This was done after a consultation with learning specialists from DELTA.

jbearp 1/10/2016: Consultation with George Rouskas (Director of Graduate Programs) in Computer Science. CSC says they do not offer a replacement course and they have no objections to Business Management teaching MBA 511.

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-The syllabus does not include the following: "When attendance and/or participation are graded, the requirements for earning full value must be explained," which is listed in the syllabus guidelines.
