Cybersecurity Certificate Programs
Cyber risk topped the 2020 Allianz Risk Barometer as the most important business risk. Now more than ever, it is critical to have the expertise to protect your business assets from cyber criminals.
In 2020, Pace University’s Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems partnered with Cyber Intelligence 4U (CIU) to offer a suite of cybersecurity certificate programs for individual and corporate training. In 2019, more than 4000 individuals completed CIU’s cybersecurity certificate programs, gaining hands-on training in current techniques and practices.
Programs are offered at both a non-technical level and a technical level.
The non-technical programs are based on three years’ worth of research with Fortune 1000 and cyber insurance companies to optimize communication strategies for business and technology teams.
The programs were conceived by Ariel Evans, author of Managing Cyber Risk, and the founder of CIU. Evans pioneered a new approach to cyber risk that empowers different departments to communicate effectively across their businesses. Using key performance indicators (KPIs), departments and teams can learn to make clear, actionable recommendations based on a digital asset approach.
Using the VRisk Cyber Risk Platform®, students perform digital asset inventories, privacy impact assessments, security assessments, cyber risk modeling, quantification, and scoring.
These programs are suitable for those at the board member, C-Level, auditor, compliance, legal, product, and other non-technical levels. They include:
- Enterprise Cybersecurity
- Executive Strategy
- Cyber Digital Risk Management
- Cybersecurity Sales Associate
Suitable for IT and security professionals, the technical programs currently include:
- Offensive/Defensive Tactics
Our technical programs teach the same platform used by the National Security Agency, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Homeland Security to train cybersecurity analysts.
These hands-on, challenge-based programs allow students to sharpen their skills across several domains.
