Security violations, data breaches, privacy failures and other technology failures are in the news every day and pose a growing threat to business and personal information. This eight month, full-time, graduate certificate program will provide students with the security background in network technologies, computing hardware, operating systems and protocols, to harden and further secure such systems from attack. Students will develop, evaluate and support information technology (IT) security solutions by creating cost-effective and secure computing environments that will safeguard networked computer systems, both on-premise and cloud-based systems.
