In an increasingly interconnected world, information is exposed to a growing number and wider variety of risks. Threats such as malicious code, ransomware and malware, sophisticated phishing, and denial-of-service attacks have become more common and ambitious. This makes implementing and maintaining information security vital to the protection of data.
Our Information Security certificate looks to provide professional skills and training to combat the threats to data security by providing advanced graduate courses in cyber security, cryptography, information ethics, and security management.
With projected job growth rates in this field being much higher than the average for all other occupations, this certificate is a great addition to both working knowledge and career credentials.
