The Internet has changed how we all live and work. An internet criminal can break into nearly anywhere in the world using a computer – and entities must close vulnerabilities. Botnets, spam, viruses, trojan horses, intrusion and identity theft, and various attacks have caused problems. Companies must adhere to ongoing security legislation to protect customers, share holders and others to ensure privacy, integrity, and availability of computers, technology devices and data.
The Cyber Security certificate is for advanced computer information systems technology and programming personnel. The Network Security course focuses on securing networks from hacking. To safeguard a network, an analyst must be adept at computer network technology and protocols. The Web Security course teaches how to program and test secure web pages. Future course offerings include Information Systems Security courses and a Secure Software Development course.
