During computer security training you will be exposed to all aspects of computer security including hackers, viruses, trojans, SPAM, intrusions, denial of service attacks and more. Some of the key security technologies that you will learn about include firewalls, VPNs, anti-virus software, intrusion prevention systems, anti-spyware systems, and more. You will also learn how to improve the security of major operating systems such as Windows, Unix, and Linux.
Professionals with a computer security degree are in high demand as computer security is becoming increasingly difficult to ensure. As a trained computer security expert, you may be responsible for securing the network of a major corporation, or may become directly involved in developing computer security products. In addition to preventing security breaches, you may also be responsible for handling the response when a security breach does occur.
