Cybersecurity Engineering (Core)

Format: Hybrid

Program Description:

As a distinct experience, the Cybersecurity Engineering Core certificate program spans from an introductory survey of fundamental information security tools and techniques to a more advanced study of the inter-relationships between offensive (attack/penetration testing) and defensive (intrusion detection and incident response) information security best practices. Courses in the program familiarize the student with essential tools and techniques used in cybersecurity engineering, teach the student various cyber attack techniques which may be employed in penetration testing and incident response, and reinforce a practitioner's ability to detect attacks through packet analysis and intrusion detection. Student capabilities are reinforced through multiple hands-on labs and network simulations.
