UMA’s Information Systems Security Certificate is a 33-credit hour program designed to help prepare individuals for the challenging world of information security. IT systems are increasingly under attack from a broad range of threats, and the impact from attacks are significant. Failure to properly protect an organization can cause significant loss of revenue, customers, jobs, as well as possibly forcing an organization to go out of business. The certificate in Information Systems Security will allow students to acquire and apply various methods, tools, technologies, and processes to help secure an organization.
The certificate coursework will help prepare students for positions in information assurance and information security analysts. Employment of information security analysts is projected to 22 percent from 2010 to 2020 according to the US Bureau of Labor. Personnel trained in information security are needed to project the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information resources and the infrastructure that enables the sharing of information.
