In cooperation with Penn State Great Valley Continuing Education, Penn State Lehigh Valley is offering a Cybersecurity Certificate Program.
Cybersecurity is more important than ever, with government and private sector networks being exploited at an unprecedented scale. As these threats grow, the cyber workforce needs to understand and protect the critical components upon which the economy, government, and national security are built.
The Cybersecurity certificate program provides students with a foundational knowledge of vital cyber aspects, including operations, laws, and policies. This program is being offered through zoom and can be done in the comfort of your own home.
Program Scope and Sequence
The Cybersecurity certificate is comprised of three required courses; the first two courses must be taken concurrently. A certificate will be awarded upon completion.
Who Should Attend
This program will be beneficial to professionals working in the cyber realm who want to expand their knowledge, as well as individuals interested in transitioning to a cyber-related position.
Students should have an understanding of the roles of the three branches of the United States government and basic Constitutional concepts. Knowledge of networks is also helpful.
Students will complete the program with a deeper understanding of cyber operations, laws, and policies. The program will also help prepare students to sit for the Certified Information Systems Security Professions (CISSP) exam.
Continuing Education Units
Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded based on a standard of one unit per ten (10) hours of classroom contact.
Note: The University reserves the right to cancel courses due to insufficient enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances
