Cybersecurity Graduate Certificates (Online)

Understand the where and why of cybercrime.

Rosemont’s graduate certificates in cybersecurity, and the related master’s degree program, are designed to respond to the increasing need for a practical, solutions-oriented approach to the question of how to improve information security. The program is predicated on the understanding that security resides in understanding where and why breaches originate and applying common-sense solutions, whether technical, procedural, or otherwise to resolve them. Information security is at least as much about people and processes as it is about technical solutions, so you’ll learn both proactive and reactive strategies to combat threats that go beyond technology.

Choose from Three Different Certificates

The three certificates are designed to be taken independently, or as a whole to complete the master’s degree in Global Cybersecurity curriculum. This stackable approach allows you to choose the level of time you invest in advancing your knowledge in this growing field.
