Plan Description

The Graduate Certificate in Emergency Management Cybersecurity is an online certificate offered by the Department of Criminal Justice.

The Emergency Management Cybersecurity graduate certificate program provides adaptable skills necessary for professionals in both public and private agencies to prepare for, respond to, and recover from cyber threats.  The program is designed for individuals with diverse professional backgrounds, who do not require advanced technical training in cybersecurity, to upskill by acquiring knowledge in the areas of information technology, law, communication, and emergency management.

Though coursework and dynamic real-world activities, students will learn to develop business continuity and recovery strategies that identify mission essential functions and time-critical tasks, and will gain understanding of legal ramifications relevant to cybersecurity, in agencies with high regulatory frameworks.  The program is designed for individuals who do not possess technological backgrounds, but instead have major operational responsibilities, that include mitigating cyber-related vulnerabilities, so that they are able to lead the preparation for, and response to, the ever-present danger of cyber-attacks.
