The Computer Information Systems (CIS) department at Delta State University will be offering two new courses this upcoming fall semester.
The latest course offering, “Principles of Information Security and Assurance (CIS 375)” will focus on an overview of computer information security including external and internal attacks upon data, physical security of the data, software security of the data and information security policy. The course is scheduled to meet on Thursday nights from 6 – 9 p.m. in Room 105 of Broom Hall on campus.
The second course entitled, “E-Commerce Application Development (CIS 475)” will focus on advanced development of database driven websites for e-commerce including the application of scripting languages, cascading style sheets, online payment processing, security procedures, accessibility design and ethics. This course will meet on Wednesday nights from 6 – 9 p.m. in Room 203 of Broom Hall on campus.
“Our hope is these evening offerings can better accommodate non-traditional students, or those who may just have an interest in the area and work during the day,” Dr. Darry Hardy, Coordinator of the CIS program at Delta State, explained. “These courses really are cutting-edge and in-tune with market trends.”
