Cost is always a deciding factor when it comes to pursuing your education. With so many online, free and low-cost options available, getting an official certificate or degree hardly seems worth it.
Unknown to many, an official paid program has multiple advantages that can fast-track your career. Unlike cheaper options that leave you with little support and unofficial credentials, a program in cyber and network security has numerous benefits that make the cost worth it.
Cambridge’s curriculum centers on practical experience. Once concepts are introduced and learned, students have the opportunity to apply their new skills. You’ll perform digital forensics to safeguard data and networks, identify security threats and apply ethical hacking procedures.
By the time you graduate, you’ll be ready to demonstrate a portfolio of experience to potential employers and apply your new skills to real-world cyber security situations.
Our Cyber and Network Security program is designed to help you pursue your career dreams in a scaffolded, scheduled way without being an overwhelming burden. The entire program is 100% online, with video lectures, chat features and the opportunity to review content through cloud recordings.
Outside of class, you’ll have the virtual capability to meet with instructors, your fellow peers and academic advisors. No matter where you are in the US, you can be a cyber and network security student at Cambridge through this online format and still have the support of an interactive school community.
One of our biggest draws is preparing students for industry certifications in the IT field. These certifications give you a leg up in your employment search by showing your competency in technology areas.
CompTIA, the largest vendor-neutral source of IT certifications and information, says 92% of employers say that certified IT employees start at a higher starting salary, and 93% of HR professionals value IT certifications.
That’s why Cambridge provides exam preparation for you to gain these certifications on your first try. These certifications include:
- Systems Security Certified Practitioner (ISC2 SSCP)
- Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)
- Certified Internet Webmaster Web Security Associate (CIW-WSA)
- CompTIA Security+
- CompTIA A+
