The Network Security Track prepares students to be information security professionals who can manage the security of increasingly critical electronic information and data communication systems. This track teaches students how to develop, build and maintain secure and cost-effective computer systems as part of a comprehensive and efficient cyber security effort within private or public sector entities. Central to this track is a series of classes in the Security Operations Center (SOC) Lab that provides students hands-on assignments building, testing, and operating secure telecommunications systems and devices.
As critical infrastructure, e-commerce and enterprises continue to be under attack, the information security field needs highly technical leaders. The ITP Network Security Track prepares you via technical and management courses to be the next information security leader.
The classes offered by the CU Interdisciplinary Telecom Program (ITP) use an applied approach through lab-based courses to give you the skills you need to:
Build secure networks
Build and deploy secure applications
Analyze networks and systems to identify weaknesses and provide more secure solutions
Plan, manage, and communicate intelligently with multiple audiences based on current policies and regulations, best practices, and upcoming trends
Through the ITP Network Security Track, you will learn not only how to build secure systems and identify weaknesses, but you will also have a thorough technical skillset to explain complex security issues to all audiences.
