Upcoming Cyber Security Certificate Program

Share This:

Now more than ever following the pandemic, companies are utilizing computers and the Internet for hybrid or remote working. This creates a higher risk for data breaches, software/hardware damage, and information leakage. However, this also creates a higher demand for those who are skilled in cyber security, and there has been tremendous job growth in this industry.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Information Security Analysts had a median pay of $103,590 in May 2020 with less than 5 years of experience. Jobs are projected to grow at a rate of 33 percent from 2020-2030, which equates to about 16,300 job openings each year through that timeframe. 

Are you ready to protect an organization’s network, systems, and computers?

CSUF Extension & International Programs (EIP) is planning to release a new Cyber Security Certificate program later this fall as part of their Professional and Continuing Education (PaCE) unit.

Christina Kim, EIP Associate Director of Program Development, enthusiastically said, “EIP is thrilled to bring this in-demand program to Cal State Fullerton and do our part in filling regional job openings.”

As a participant, you will learn security techniques and methodologies needed to strengthen a digital infrastructure, making you an extremely valuable asset to companies. This opportunity is excellent for those who are interested in becoming or currently working as a:

  • Security analyst
  • Security engineer
  • Cybercrime investigator

Also, did you know that some companies offer benefits to help fund their employees’ education? Talk to your manager or human resources director and ask about tuition reimbursement.
