ITEC850 - Network Management. This unit covers architecture, analysis, design, standards and migration issues related to the operation, management and control of distributed systems and communication networks for voice, data, image, and networked computing. Initially the focus is on the fundamental building blocks of network management architecture. These basics are built upon by discussing advanced topics including Broadband and Web-based network management, telecommunications management, security management, management platforms and applications/research issues such as delegated agents and management of mobile or ad hoc networks.

PICT848 - Cyber Security. This unit is an introduction to cyber security threats, technologies and management practices within the public and private sectors. The threats faced in the cyber world in many ways mirror those in the physical world. Despite that they also differ in nature as they are neither inhibited by geography nor political borders. This unit will consider these threats in that context. The unit will also provide a sound understanding of the governing principles behind cyber security, the theory and practice behind technology risks and countermeasures and the role that security management plays in the wider picture of forensics analysis, policing, intelligence and counter terrorism.
