This certificate focuses on the knowledge and tools necessary to address the increasing demand on corporate and governmental organizations to improve the security of their "cyber content." Courses in the certificate provide an understanding of the foundation of current cybersecurity threats, the phraseology and terminology used in the sector, as well as the various roles, responsibilities and tools related to detection of cyber threats.
The faculty members in the Cybersecurity program are experienced professionals from the industry. Not only will they be able to prepare you for a career, they’ll help you play a part in the global battle against cybercrime.
"It’s in the papers all the time: stories of hacked company computer systems and sensitive government data leaked by cyber-criminals,” says Jean Paul van Marissing, Director of Webster Leiden. ”Lots of employers assume it will never happen to them – until it does and your entire business is paralyzed for days, or even weeks, on end. It’s only after their houses are burgled that people start thinking about locks and alarm systems. Unfortunately, there is a similar situation as far as cybercrime is concerned.”
If you think that you’re ready to join the fight against these criminals, then Webster’s Cybersecurity Certificate in threat detection may be right for you.
