Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity for the Global Environment

Our Cybersecurity for the Global Environment Certificate was designed by private industry experts and military veterans to educate business professionals and municipal leaders on the threats faced by networked, data-driven infrastructure like yours. This unique certificate helps non-technical leaders and managers ask the right questions to provide maximum protection against malware, ransomware, phishing, DoS attacks, and corporate espionage.

The high costs of cyber-attacks such as ‘ransomware’ are crippling. As a municipal or business leader you have an inherent responsibility to understand cyber threats and regulations, enough so that you can guide & resource your IT & cyber teams. They have your organization’s security on their shoulders but need your leadership.

— Thomas Stewart
