Information Systems Security Certification, Network Security Certification, Network Security Degrees

 

Computer Systems Security has become a major concern in the industry.  Hackers and unwanted intruders are a small part of the problem.  Mishandling of databases results in open access to millions of records that contain private information.  Identity Theft is one of the most frightening crimes to appear in decades.

 

Information Systems Security Specialists are sought-after consultants, as businesses seek judgments on a system’s vulnerability. Custom Programmers and System Designers are asked to help develop new Antivirus Software, programs, and procedures as preemptive measures to keep “hackers” out and systems virus free.  Firms who have built up extensive E-Businesses are spending extensive sums on these consulting services.  It makes sense, then, that people who gain an education in Information Systems Security should have a number of career opportunities before them.
