Program Objective

The InfoSec Professional program begins by solidifying foundational skills in cyber security. These skills consist of theoretical and hands on studies in the protection and application of network security, compliance/operational intelligence, threats, access control, and cryptography. Students will continue to build upon these skills by now learning the intentions and toolsets of hackers and rogue nations. Students will have the opportunity seeking and exploiting vulnerable web servers, poorly coded apps, and misconfigured IoT and computing devices to properly find solutions to remediate and mitigate infrastructures to acceptable risk levels. Finally, students will learn to document and report their findings to upper management.

After the completion of this program, student will have the opportunity to take and pass industry sought after certifications such as CompTIAs Security+, EC Council CEH/ECSA, and ISC2 CISSP.
