The Applied Cybersecurity program teaches the tools and systems used to monitor, mitigate, and prevent online threats. Cybersecurity professionals use innovative technology to combat hackers, cyberterrorists, network outages, and other technical problems that compromise network security
- IT Fundamentals
- CPT and Net Security
- Cybersecurity Essentials
- Operational Cybersecurity
In IT fundamentals students learn the very basics of computers. They learn how to troubleshoot blue screens, how to do minor repairs as well as learning the different careers in IT. In CPT and Network security students will learn about networking, how it works and what's the purpose of it. They'll also use that knowledge to set up their own networks. The next step is Cybersecurity Essentials. This is where students will use the knowledge gained from the previous two courses and apply it to Cybersecurity. They'll learn about vulnerabilities, intrusions about cryptography as well as general Cybersecurity knowledge. The last year they will put all their knowledge together and put it into effect. Students will see how Cybersecurity works in the real world, how vulnerabilities can be exposed and how to protect from intrusions.
Students learn the basics of computers, how to repair them, how to set up networks, and how to secure them.
