    Learning and Teaching Methods

    INFO30006 Information Security, Privacy and Transparency, 2018: https://handbook.unimelb.edu.au/subjects/info30006

    The subject will be delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops, and group presentations/discussions. As preparation for the class, students will study theory and practical cases through academic readings, journalistic analyses from reputable outlets, podcasts, and documentaries/TEDx talks as part of their group activities. We attempt to bring in noteworthy guest speakers to share their experiences from ‘the inside’ when possible.

    Indicative Key Learning Resources

    Students will have access to lecture slides and notes on the subject’s LMS site. We do not use a prescribed textbook but will provide some essential readings and other resources for class sessions and workshops.

    Careers/Industry Links

    Whether students choose to follow a career path related to information security and privacy, this subject seeks to create an inherent awareness of issues to aid students’ confidence in participating in the broad public debate to help shape our future society; our rights as citizens, our obligations as employees, and our xxx as societies. Our guest lecturers will share their experiences from different corners of the world to aid in providing a more holistic picture of one of the biggest concerns of the “global nation” today.
