The demand for cybersecurity professionals far outstrips the supply. CMU’s online Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity is designed to meet a critical need for trained professionals.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, “Our daily life, economic vitality, and national security depend on a stable, safe, and resilient cyberspace… Yet cyber intrusions and attacks have increased dramatically over the last decade, exposing sensitive personal and business information, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy.”
Become part of this vital and rapidly growing profession.
Every business, industry, governmental agency, financial system, medical facility – any entity that needs to safeguard information from current and potential security threats and vulnerabilities – needs trained cybersecurity professionals. Get started on your graduate certificate today.
Students pursuing the Cybersecurity Graduate Certificate first take BIS 510. The other courses may be taken as desired, culminating with BIS 530, which in conjunction with the other courses, prepares individuals to sit for the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification exam.
