Program Overview

Arm yourself with a new career in Cyber Security! We’ll show you how.

Technology is such a big part of our lives and smart phones, tablets, computers and other high-end devices are all around us. With advances in technology and the ease of accessing so much data, comes opportunities for data attacks and exploitation. This is one reason why U.S. News & World Report has Data Security jobs listed in their Best Technology Jobs in 2019.1 This is a future-proof career that crosses multiple industries, and our certificate program can help get you started.

The Cyber Security program at Southern Careers Institute, in partnership with Woz U, will help you gain the expertise and knowledge of working with databases, networks, firewalls and hardware so you can help protect them from attacks. Through structured classes led by industry experts and hands-on experience, you’ll learn how to perform risk assessments and test infrastructure to secure your company’s data and intellectual property. You’ll learn the fundamentals of setting up and installing secured systems, learn how to spot vulnerabilities, and how to lead a recovery effort if necessary.

The ultimate goal of a Cyber Security specialist is to protect the integrity of computers, programs, networks and data from unauthorized attacks. The Cyber Security program through SCI offers you the basics to get started in this ever-changing, ever-challenging and exciting career. After the 33-week program, you’ll be prepped for the network certification exam, and our career services team will help get you ready to market your new skills to employers.
