Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is one of the fastest-growing fields in the nation. The U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 32% job growth in hiring for Cybersecurity roles between 2018 and 2028. At Gwinnett Tech, you will learn the principles, tools, and techniques required to keep computers and employers secure from disastrous hackers and attacks. With a degree, diploma, or certificate from Gwinnett Tech, students learn to prevent internal attacks, apply encryption techniques, plan for disaster and incident recover and implement system testing.

The Cybersecurity Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree prepares students for the cybersecurity workforce by offering a planned sequence of courses in computer hardware, computer software, operating systems, networking, network security, cyber defense and countermeasures, penetration testing/ethical hacking, digital forensics, and security policies and procedures. Graduates of the Cybersecurity AAS will be prepared for technical positions in both business and government sectors.

Gwinnett Tech is recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Two Year Education (CAE2Y) by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security. The CAE2Y is a rigorous but valuable distinction. This designation, issued jointly by the NSA and the DHS, is one of the most prestigious recognitions for cybersecurity excellence a college can receive. Students will learn to master the 15 core competencies identified by NSA/DHS. These include cyber defense, security design, cryptography, and ethics. The College designed the coursework to prepare students for entry-level positions in the cybersecurity workforce and to help them to prepare for and pass multiple cyber-related industry certification examinations required by many employers.
