About MHCC’s CyberSecurity and Networking Program
The program introduces new students (and enhances the skills of existing professionals) to the rapidly expanding and important world of cybersecurity (also known as “information assurance” or “trustworthy computing”). This program prepares students for several progressively challenging industry-recognized certifications. By the end of the decade, all or nearly all intermediate level computer technical, developmental and implementation careers will require some level of cybersecurity training.
