Graduate Certificate Programs: Cyber Defense Operations

Designed for working InfoSec and IT professionals, the graduate certificate program in Cyber Defense Operations is a 12-credit-hour sequence of highly technical, hands-on courses focused on teaching the applied technologies used to defend and secure information assets and business systems at an organization. Because traditional counter defenses are no longer effective in stopping malware, viruses, and other advanced attacks, it is a forgone conclusion that targeted organizations will be compromised. Therefore, proactive and layered defensive tactics are needed to stop the adversary.
