Cyber security is more important than ever, with government and private sector networks being exploited at an unprecedented scale. As these threats grow, the cyber workforce needs to understand and protect the critical components upon which the economy, government, and national security are built.
The Cyber Security certificate program provides students with a foundational knowledge of vital cyber aspects, including operations, laws, and policies.
