Cybersecurity Certificate Available on MindEdge Online

June 3, 2016

MindEdge Learning now offers a Certificate in Cybersecurity that provides an introduction to the critical elements of information security, as well as foundational information about key certifications for professionals in the industry.

Cybersecurity, also known as Information Security, is the protection of data and personally identifiable information from malicious attacks, theft, and destruction. Failures of cybersecurity policies, both in large corporations and governmental agencies, have earned significant visibility and negative publicity in recent months and years. As the amount of data being stored continues to increase, and as hackers become more sophisticated, the need for cybersecurity is greater than ever.

MindEdge's Certificate in Cybersecurity will help learners master the vocabulary of the industry and offers examples, videos, interactive games, and review questions to ensure mastery of the material.

Courses in the certificate program include:

  • Asset Security
  • Communications and Network Security
  • Identity and Access Management
  • Security and Risk Management
  • Security Assessment and Testing
  • Security Engineering
  • Security Operations
  • Software Development Security

Courses can be taken in any order. Upon successful completion, you can download a printable certificate of completion for this online course suite. This certificate has no textbooks or prerequisites.

The Certificate in Cybersecurity is available on MindEdge Online and through selected MindEdge partners.

This symbol of achievement, aligned with Mozilla Open Badges, can be stored in a learner's Mozilla Backpack for sharing across career sites, social networks, and personal portfolios.
