IA 340A -- Intro to IA -- Lecture Notes & Review Questions

These slide files and review questions are coded to the corresponding chapters in Volumes I & II of the Computer Security Handbook, 6th Edition edited by Sy Bosworth, M. E. Kabay & Eric Whyne, editors (2014, Wiley). AMAZON link.

The MS-PowerPoint files (PPTX) are available for students in IA340 & IA342 and for any other non-commercial educational use (e.g., college and university courses at non-profit institutions, or internal training taught by employees of the organization using the materials); the PDF notes are available for more economical printing if you like dribbling pigment on compressed plant fibers. Most students are simply using laptops or pads to view the slides and make notes.

Useful for study and review; however, I have abolished Death by PowerPoint in most class sessions and now conduct discussions with occasional videos to enliven the two weekly 1.5-hour course sessions. However, there are a few topics where I fly through the slides to point out key points.

IA 340 students: you should read or at least scan the assigned readings before coming to class. Use these files for review after you study the materials thoroughly in your textbook and participate in class. Be sure you can speak intelligently to the points on each slide. This practice will serve you well in job interviews as well as for quiz and exam prep. They can even be useful as you review for security-certification exams such as the SSCP or CISSP exam.

All of the lecture files in the following page are PowerPoint presentations. Most but not all are based at least in part on chapters of the Computer Security Handbook, 6th Edition. However, some files include material that is not directly referenced in those chapters.

Review Questions are available in PDF files for the chapters used in IA340.
