Title: A Course Applying Network Analysis to Organizational
Risk in Information Security
Author(s): Helen Armstrong, Colin Armstrong, Ian McCulloh
Reference: pp204-214
Keywords: Information security education, network analysis, organization risk
Abstract: Network science has been applied in the hard and soft sciences for several decades. Founded
in graph theory, network science is now an expansive approach to the analyses of complex
networks of many types of objects (events, people, locations, etc.). Researchers are finding
that techniques and tools used in social network analysis have relevant application in projects
that span more than just relationships between people. This paper discusses the application of
network analysis in a postgraduate course on information security and risks in organisational
settings as a special topic course.
