Cybersecurity Certificate

Students who earn a cybersecurity certificate not only advance their information security skills, but also develop essential expertise in the concepts, technical aspects and information security principles necessary to increase job prospects and add to their professional portfolio.

The cybersecurity certificate coursework is designed for both GGC students (other than system and security majors) and professional candidates seeking to advance their skills in the field of information security. The coursework also helps prepare students for industry certification opportunities such as the Microsoft Technology Associate, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, CompTIA Cloud Essentials+ and the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner.
