David will provide a short, interdisciplinary introduction to (information) security. Starting with the core concepts of confidentiality, integrity, and availability, we will discuss the declarative objectives of security and their operational implementations. We will consider what is meant by vulnerabilities, exploits, and attacks, as well as threats and attackers. We will discuss access control in a range of systems, and consider how to think about security from the perspective of economics. This will incorporate both an introductory and advanced session.
