The nature of digital manufacturing and design (DM&D), and its heavy reliance on creating a digital thread of product and process data and information, makes it a prime target for hackers and counterfeiters. This course will introduce students to why creating a strong and secure infrastructure should be of paramount concern for anyone operating in the DM&D domain, and measures that can be employed to protect operational technologies, systems and resources.
Acquire knowledge about security needs and the application of information security systems. Build the foundational skills needed in performing a risk assessment of operational and information technology assets. Gain valuable insights of implementing controls to mitigate identified risks.
Main concepts of this course will be delivered through lectures, readings, discussions and various videos.
This is the eighth course in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology specialization that explores the many facets of manufacturing’s “Fourth Revolution,” and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established DMD-related professional goal.
Who is this class for: This course is for anyone interested in how digital advances are changing the landscape and capabilities of manufacturing, from high school graduates exploring careers to operations managers and business owners hungry for an understanding of the newest manufacturing technologies.
Course 8 of 10 in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology Specialization.
