Cyber attacks occur every 39 seconds. Gain a foundation in cyber defense and learn how to protect data and network assets. You’ll even learn about digital forensics, a necessary skill for cybercrime investigations.


Earn industry-recognized certifications

Through your coursework and some additional self-study, you can earn additional CompTIA certifications, such as A+, Network+, Linux+, Security+, and more. These certifications show employers that you’re highly skilled in your field.
