Course Description

CEC Cybersecurity students learn how to protect and defend their digital footprints and organizations against complex cyber threats, attacks, intrusions, and security breaches. While pursuing a career in the exponentially growing field of Cybersecurity, students may choose to prepare for and/or earn professional CompTIA certifications in IT Essentials, Network+, Linux, Security+, and many more.

During this year-long program, students will study the importance of protecting each area of infrastructure; Application, Information, Network, End-user, and Operational Security, as well as Disaster Recovery Planning, tactical simulations, and collaboration.
