Explore Academic Programs - Network Cloud Support and Cybersecurity


Each year, the number of migrations to cloud computing increases and the number of cyberattacks increases, almost as if by design.  As cloud computing becomes the norm, cloud security must as well.  Enter our new Network Cloud Support and Cybersecurity degree.  Cloud security, also known as cloud computing security, consists of a set of policies, controls, procedures and technologies that work together to protect cloud-based systems, data, and infrastructure. From authenticating access to filtering traffic, cloud security can be configured to the exact needs of the business.  Managing and optimizing cloud services is important and protecting them from loss and abuse, malicious or accidental is equally important.  The Network Cloud Support and Cybersecurity program prepares the student for these areas of employment.
