This Cybersecurity certificate is designed for the student who seeks to take on growing responsibilities for securing organizational data and network infrastructure against digital threats.  Students will build a deeper and broader knowledge of the tools and protocols needed to navigate, use, and manage security technologies.  This certificate provides technical and strategic knowledge to help the student fully leverage innovations while moving an organization from a reactive to a predictive approach to risk mitigation.  Students will also engage in conversations that will provide insight into the ethical, legal, and social dynamics of cybersecurity.
