Course content
1. Importance of information for business company (electronic information is a part of the most important company assets, company dependence on the processing of electronic information, necessity of information securing from the point of view of confidentiality, integrity and availability) 2. Main reasons of information securing (obligations arisen from valid legislation, commitments to other companies, own business interests of a company) 3. Procedure of securing information realisation (risk analysis of IS, determination of information owners, security policy of IS, realization of the information protection) 4. The methods of risk analysis (detailed methods, basic approach, informal approach, using of concrete methods: CRAMM - CCTA Risk Analysis Management Method, IPAK, FRAP) 5. Security policy (security policy of IS, system security policies, security documentation) 6. Realisation of safeguards (areas of realisation, concrete safeguards) 7. Introduction to cryptography 8. One-way function, hash function (SHA-1), checksums 9. Symmetric cryptosystems (AES, DES, Triple DES) 10. Asymmetric cryptosystems (RSA) 11. Digital signature, certification authority (CA) 12. The principle of elliptic curves 13. Cryptography and legislation (Czech Republic and the European Union) 14. Reserve
