Program Description

The Information Systems Security Certificate Program provides students with the core skills required to take a lead role in information security within their organization. Students will be able to identify risks, threats and vulnerabilities to a computer system. They will acquire the skills to isolate these threats and fortify or harden computer systems, software, networks and the physical sites. Students will also develop working knowledge of the various laws governing the computer security area and how compliance can be affected.

The certificate is designed with a two-fold approach: to accept students who already have a degree and want to upgrade their skills or to accept entry level students who do not have a degree and are brand new to the knowledge set. These students will be able to intern at a company and apply the skills and abilities before venturing into an employment setting.
