Cyber Security Certificate
College: College of Business, Economics, and Computing
The computer science department offers a certificate in cyber security for students interested in careers as an information systems auditor or security analyst. Our certificate is the first offered by a four-year university in Wisconsin that meets the Committee on National Security Systems National Training Standard for: Information Systems Security (INFOSEC) Professionals, NSTISSI No. 4011. With the growth of computer networking and the World Wide Web, cyber security has become of increasing importance to all computer users. Our certificate gives students a background in securing applications and systems software, desktop computers, servers, and the networks that connect them. The certificate is supported by a dedicated laboratory that is isolated from the rest of the campus network, allowing students to gain practical hands-on knowledge of the tools used to both attack and defend computers.
All certificates are available to undergraduate students only (not to graduate students).
