Cybersecurity Certificate

Organizations increasingly process and store data and information on computers and networks. With the growing threat of cyber attacks or security breaches of organizational databases and network infrastructure, security graduates are expected to understand information security beyond simple terminology and concepts. The on-campus and online Cybersecurity Administration Certificate program is an entry-level program that provides the basic skills and techniques to secure software, hardware and networks. Students learn to securely configure and administer Windows and Linux servers, which are common environments to protect and secure an organization's critical information assets and business systems.

Sullivan offers the Cybersecurity Certificate online and on campus as a 32-quarter credit hour program that may be incorporated into a degree program or taken as a stand-alone certificate in 12 months for part-time students.
