Georgia Tech Professional Education (GTPE), in cooperation with the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), now offers a Cyber Security Certificate that offers participants a more in-depth approach, including a focus on policy-making, people issues and engineering frameworks for cyber security.
The five-course certificate is composed of one required course and four electives, and applies systems engineering principles to create a holistic approach to cyber security. Choosing from seven courses, participants can customize their certificate to give a unique focus to particular topics.
According to Terrye Schaetzel, director of Educational Outreach with GTRI, this course will help organizations move their cyber security efforts from a reactive approach to a predictive model.
“Cyber Security is not just an information technology (IT) function,” said Schaetzel, who works with GTRI’s Cyber Technology and Information Security Laboratory (CTISL). “It is becoming a core strategic function of any organization. This certificate and courses enable people to take a broader look at the whole picture of cyber security.”
Designed for technical professionals who lead cyber security efforts and aspire to be CISO’s (Chief Information Security Officers), the courses also enable participants to further develop critical thinking skills. Hands-on labs and exercises provide a deeper understanding of solutions to help counter increasing threats to cyber security.
Each course takes roughly three to four days, which allows for a relatively quick turnaround for the certificate. All requirements for the certificate must be completed within six years from the date of completion of the first course.
