Working in information security systems for a corporation or government agency requires students to have a solid foundation in computer programming, cyber security, and computer networking systems. This degree program will prepare students for the many challenges that will need to be met in this field. As the internet becomes more widely used for document passing and data storage, additional security measures need to be taken in order to prevent identity theft, or secret information about product development.
Courses in computer networking, information systems security, cyber law, computer programming, and project management will help students learn how to build new networking systems, upgrade existing systems, and monitor them for potential theft. It is important to continually update and enhance networking systems so valuable information cannot be stolen. Students will also learn how to lead teams when installing and monitoring information security systems.
