About this program

Cyber Security- Post-graduate Certificate

The Cyber Security post-graduate certificate will prepare students for the challenges of identifying network and computer system vulnerabilities, conducting ethical hacks to determine system risk and designing organizational cyber security plans. The program content is based on the expectation that students will have developed problem-solving skills and basic research skills in their undergraduate information and communication technology degrees, and that the Cyber Security post-graduate certificate program will enhance their existing knowledge and skills. Cyber security is everyone's business, and developing current practical knowledge is important in this digital growth industry.
