Information and Operating Systems Security

Business Division
Certificate E0731

The Information and Operating Systems Security certificate provides students the skills to analyze security risks to a computer network and select and deploy countermeasures to reduce the network’s exposure to such risks. The certificate offers a balanced set of classes that provides students the skills to identify network threats and protect the system against them. Students will demonstrate the ability to create a secure computer system and utilize security tools to protect it from security threats. Although this certificate, by itself, may not qualify a student for a career in network security, it would ideally complement other network security certificates and/or degrees within the CIS program.
