This subject introduces you to the international relations of digital technologies and develops fundamental knowledge of how networks operate. State and nonstate actors have rapidly acquired the capacity to pursue power and disrupt adversaries through the cyber world. The subject provides you with the theoretical and practical skills to explore the infrastructure and processes of networks and how, why and where hacking is being employed. You will examine individual, firm and state security within this changed international environment of identity and credit card theft, malware, viruses, botnets, cyberespionage, cyber-attacks and denial of service. Hacking, Networks and Security considers global cyber governance structures and standards as well as states’ attempts to balance technological benefits against emergent threats, through policy on the issues studied in the subject such as cyber war, data security, cloud computing, surveillance or government censorship.
