Cyber-Security Issues are major stories almost weekly now. McDonalds in Taiwan and Korea had all their customers’ data breached; a Major Oil Company goes offline because they became infected with a Trojan, and Vancouver’s EA gets breached by hackers and the data for an upcoming game was stolen.
The Cyber-Security Diploma is designed to support the critical need for the cyber-security workforce. It provides multi-modal, real-world focussed hands-on training that can augment the merits of an academic degree and a baseline for further knowledge acquisition in the field.
Cloud-based, online labs will provide robust stimulation environments and give students the chance to hone their skills.
