The Cyber Security Certificate Program is designed as a part-time program for working adults that is normally completed over a 12-month period. It is intended for those with a minimum of a bachelor's degree who are seeking skills in cyber security and information assurance.

The program equips graduates with both the theoretical and hands-on experience required to be proficient in information assurance within a cyber security environment. The curriculum builds knowledge and enhances skills through exposure to the multiple technologies utilized in cyber security, while developing leadership and enterprise-wide strategic thinking in security policy development and procedures. Learning outcomes include the ability to implement security protocols for local, national and multinational organizations; the ability to identify the underlying theories and strategies for securing computer networks and the ability to develop and articulate strategic plans that secure data and networks from internal and external threats.
