CYS - Cyberspace Strategies

This course examines the cyberspace strategies used by the United States, key nations, and non- state actors. Students examine relevant policies and constraints which will significantly impact strategies and achieving desired goals. Cyberspace risks, conflicts, and potential resolutions are proposed and discussed within this course. Students evaluate cyberspace leadership, operational features, strategic trends, and enforcement and dispute mechanisms. Students assess the cyberspace strategies employed by individual citizens, the federal government (such as commerce, defense, and intelligence), private industry, non-governmental organizations, transnational and international organizations, and organized crime. Students examine the consequences, repercussions, and likely outcomes of next-generation cyberspace strategies and how they could possibly address and shape issues within the continually evolving cyberspace domain.
