Information systems security has become a critical knowledge area for those interested in a career as an information technology professional. This degree provides the information and skills necessary for network administration professionals to implement security from internal and external threats for an enterprise network. It covers client and server security on different operating systems, disaster recovery planning, and forensics. This program also provides preparation for several computer information security certification exams, including the Computer Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) Security+ exam, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) exams, and several of the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification exams.
Networking/security skills and experience are needed for technical support staff, administrators, designers, troubleshooters, and information systems security specialists. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2008-2018) figures, job demands in these areas will grow a phenomenal 37.1% annually, and will continue to exceed the number of available and trained workers.
