PS-UY 3604 Psychology of Internet Security

4 Credits
This course looks at the relationship between psychology and online security. How do computer hackers access secure computers strictly by asking people for their password? What are the key features of current security messages and how can they be made more explicit so the average computer user can understand them? What social-psychology principles are required for a secure network? And what perceptual issues help secure a computer network?

Prerequisite(s): One level 2 STS cluster course.
Note: Satisfies a humanities and social sciences elective.
