Ensure Security at Every Step

Implementing IT security controls is no longer sufficient to keep global infrastructure safe. You need the skills to integrate strategies for repelling evolving cyber threats into software, network, and system design.

Become one of the elite cybersecurity professionals who can design systems to repel attacks before they appear. Through a combination of foundational theory and hands-on practice, you will learn how to engineer and execute sophisticated solutions to protect systems and infrastructure.

  • Focus on building secure software, networks, and systems from the ground up.
  • Use forensic tools within virtual machine environments to repel and disarm real-life modern cyber threats.
  • Learn from active practitioners and researchers with experience in corporate and military systems.

Ensure systems and software are protected from security threats every step of the way. Fill out the form on the right for more information and a free program overview brochure.
