Information Security Fundamentals graduate badge

The School of Computing now offers graduate-level digital badges. A digital badge, or simply "badge," recognizes your completion of a coherent and meaningful academic experience. A badge allows you to promote academic achievements online more effectively and in different venues than with a transcript.

Program Overview

The School of Computing's information security fundamentals badge is not a degree or certificate. Completion of a bachelor's degree, and evidence of some programming skill is required for admission.

The badge presents the principles of information security, and how to integrate these principles into the systems life cycle. Coverage includes a broad overview of information security concepts, requirements, threats, vulnerabilities, and countermeasures, with an emphasis on designing for security, risk management, and security policies.
