Cyber Security and Assurance Degree

  • Program Overview

    The Cyber Security and Assurance Program at BCCC emphasizes the need to build a wall between our private information and those who seek to exploit it. Recurring events such as virus, worms, and online attacks committed by hackers or other cyber criminals, have revealed weaknesses in current information technologies and the need to heighten the security of these critical systems. Students will gain practical experience in understanding threats and dangers, assessing security and analyzing a wide range of businesses, and the steps needed to mitigate these vulnerabilities through state-of-the-art technology. The program prepares students for vendor-specific or commercially available security certification.
