Teaching

Information Systems Security (ISS)
Interdisciplinary Focus

Shuyuan’s teaching has focused on the intersections of computing security, information content security and information security management, which is synergistically called Information Systems Security (ISS). The eight-layered Information Security Architecture (Bernard and Ho, 2009) is comprised of information security governance, operations security, personnel security, information and dataflow security, applications development security, systems security, infrastructure security and physical security. Shuyuan argues that the cyber security infrastructure, risk analysis and risk management are each a critical part of this architecture.

Shuyuan has sixteen years of professional knowledge and technological experience in information systems security (or, cybersecurity). In addition to teaching in organizations while as an info-sec practitioner, Shuyuan has taught courses in Information Technology (IT), Information Systems Security (ISS) and Information Security Architecture (ISA) at Syracuse University. Shuyuan teaches multi-level courses in cyber security, risk analysis (RA) and risk management (RM), as well as behavioral information security.
