国際公共政策実践研究（Introduction to Cybersecurity Policy）
This course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity from multiple perspectives. The course will cover political, economic, and technology aspects of cybersecurity, including national and international laws and policies, government initiatives, and private sector involvement. The interdisciplinary nature of cybersecurity means that students from various fields outside the Graduate School of Public Policy, such as law, computer science, information management, or sociology, can also benefit from this course. Although the course will cover some basic technical terms and principles related to cybersecurity, it is not a technical course, and technical knowledge about computer skills is not required. However, it is desirable for students to have a familiarity with a variety of literatures, such as up-to-date published research reports, policy documents, news articles, and academic articles, to be able to engage with the course material effectively.
Overall, this course is designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to understand cybersecurity challenges and solutions from multiple perspectives and to develop effective policies and strategies to address cybersecurity threats in various contexts.
The course objectives include but are not limited to,
● Understanding the policy issues that center on international relations, business continuity, and risk/crisis management to protect intellectual property, assets, reputation, and other organizational assets from any threat or attack related to cybersecurity.
