Our online Cybersecurity Concepts certificate program is an ideal starting point for students seeking to develop foundational knowledge in the field of cybersecurity.
Students will be introduced to the various aspects of information systems, including the principles, practices, policies, and standards for securing them, as well as the various threats and vulnerabilities they face. Networks, at the heart of information systems, are addressed through standard models and protocols, and students will learn how to configure and secure computer networks through hands-on simulations and virtual labs.
Through the knowledge gained in this program, as well as practice exams, students are prepared to sit for the CompTIA Network+ and Security+ certification exams.
This program is also relevant to students currently serving in entry-level technology roles including IT analyst, systems technicians, compliance specialist, and security auditor.
After earning the certificate, graduates are encouraged to continue developing their knowledge and skills by enrolling into the Advanced Cybersecurity certificate program [make a link]. Academic credit earned through completion of courses in these cybersecurity certificate programs can be applied to the bachelor's degree programs in cybersecurity.
