The Cybersecurity program is designed to equip participants with the essential skills and knowledge needed to excel in the field. This program covers a wide array of critical topics, including Information Security technologies, contingency planning, and system monitoring, enabling students to examine the foundations of secure data management. Participants will also delve into network management, focusing on threat assessment, network security, and strategic mitigation planning. In addition, the program includes in-depth coverage of firewall technologies and strategies for designing secure computer systems. The curriculum extends to computer system role management, emphasizing security policies, standards, and procedures to ensure effective governance of IT resources.
Moreover, students will gain expertise in project management, mastering the entire project lifecycle from initiation to closure in various IT system projects. Ethical and legal standards in IT systems are explored, allowing students to apply these principles in practice. Finally, this program prepares individuals to excel in industry-recognized CompTIA certifications, including Security +, Network +, Project +, and A+, empowering them to succeed in today’s cybersecurity landscape.
The Computing Technology Industry Association, more commonly known as CompTIA, is an American non-profit trade association that issues professional certifications for the information technology industry. It is considered one of the IT industry’s top trade associations.
Lakewood University is a certified CompTIA education partner. This lets us help students schedule, prepare for, and pass the relevant certification exams. The first attempt at all four exams will be paid for by Lakewood University. In fact, the Ascend Courseware we have incorporated into these courses is designed to prepare students for the following CompTIA exams:
– Security +
– Network +
– Project +
Students are encouraged to take all four certification exams. If a student successfully passes the A+, Security+, and Network + exams, they will earn what is called a stackable certificate from CompTIA.
More information about the CompTIA certification exams can be found here.
