Course Overview

Big data needs big protection. That’s because 90% percent of the world’s data has been created in just the last few years1. And as computer networks grow, so too does the quantity of vulnerable information.

The 24-week Cybersecurity Boot Camp is a challenging, part-time program that takes a multidisciplinary approach to attaining proficiency in IT, networking, and modern information security.

This unique program gives students hands-on training in networking systems, web technologies, databases, and defensive and offensive cybersecurity. You will also learn methods, techniques, and best practices for accurately conveying the severity of the risks facing an organization’s security posture.

In addition to two weeks of certification test prep for the Security+ and CEH exams within the program curriculum, students benefit from the program’s CompTIA Partnership. Through this partnership, students receive 12 months of free access to the CompTIA CertMaster Practice for Security+ test prep course ($199 value), plus a free voucher to take the Security+ exam ($339 value).
