ia certificate

With the demand for IT security professionals at an all-time high, UAH's College of Business has created a graduate certificate program in Cybersecurity Studies. Learn how to:

  • Secure and defend networks
  • Recover from security failures
  • Use computer forensics
  • Manage data security

In addition to receiving a graduate certificate from UAH, students will also get training to help them prepare for tests that will qualify them for additional security certifications, such as Security+ and CISSP (Certified Information Systems Security Professional). The Department of Defense now requires its Information Assurance personnel and those of contractors to hold certifications appropriate for the employee's position*.  Because it is a graduate program, credit hours earned in the information assurance program can also be applied toward a master's degree.

Offered at night to accommodate working professionals, courses in this program will focus on managerial and practical aspects of IT security.

 *Please see Department of Defense Directive 8570.1, Information Assurance Training, Certification, and Workforce Management, August 2004.
