Information stored on computer networks is among a company's most valuable assets. Yet, intruders can gain access to computer networks via any connection to the outside world or even within the office.

Every business will have a need for security. No matter how large or small, an intuder can disrupt operations or take information that is vital to the success of the business. Some industries that traditionally employ security professionals are the Department of Defense (DoD), financial institutions, medical facilities and clinics.

Acquire the skills to balance and manage the inherent risks of doing business in a networked world while allowing users access to information they need. You will learn to formulate and implement an information security policy, manage information assets and design a successful security infrastructure. You will also get vital hands-on experience in defending against attack and intrusion, and disaster recovery preparation.

"I enjoy attending [MCC] because the classes are easy to fit into my work schedule, and they're not as expensive as other places. The Network Security Program was very interesting. I met a lot of great people and the instructors made the classes pleasurable after the long days at work. I look forward to continuing my education at Metropolitan Community College."
