The goal of the subject is to learn the fundamental concepts in data management including conceptual modelling, the relational data model, processing of relational data with Structured Query Language (SQL), enforcing the concepts of data confidentiality, integrity, and availability data management systems. The subject develops the skills in the design, implementation, processing, and security of data management systems. The subject covers the following topics in data security: discretionary access control, user management, enforcing data security and integrity. The subject also explains the important ethical issues associated with responsible disclosure, responsibility, liability, security weaknesses, and privacy in data management systems.
