Information Security Certificate
With the increase of computer and network attacks, information security has become a very serious concern. Organizations need information security professionals to protect digital assets. The Information Security Certificate is offered to students who wish to obtain theoretical and practical knowledge in information security. The Center for Technology Collaboration, which incorporates the programs of Computer Science, Criminal Justice, and Management Information Systems at GSU, is also involved in offering this certificate.
In addition to meeting the university requirements for certificate admission, applicants must have complete the following courses in either category 1 or category 2:
