The Cybersecurity and Healthcare IT certificate meets the need for healthcare providers and associated businesses to be confident that every aspect of their operation is electronically secure. As the functions of healthcare include scheduling, storage of images, filling prescriptions, billing and more are handled and stored using information technology, the need to build electronic and data transfer systems to support these functions, and to protect the information, has dramatically increased. With this shift, the vulnerability of healthcare records has also increased through errors, acts of negligence and malice. The workforce responsible for this electronic information must be skilled in assuring confidentiality, integrity and availability of IT systems and networks. This unique program focuses on the integration of the technology along with the needs of the healthcare industry increasing the value of the cybersecurity professional.
Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting computer systems against unauthorized access or attack and maintaining the smooth functioning of information systems at all levels. At present, programs that provide such Cybersecurity training are not widely available, and the additional concentration on healthcare is a unique aspect of this program.
Applicants to the Cybersecurity and Healthcare IT Program must meet the general admission requirements to the College and interview with the Program Director. It is expected that applicants already have a basic knowledge of computer hardware and software. Applicants who do not possess this knowledge may be required to take additional courses to meet this need. Attending college part-time will take more than two years to complete.
Students must earn a grade of "C" or higher in all CYBS/CSCI technology courses required for graduation to progress within the program and graduate.
Students will be required to become a member of Infragard as a prerequisite for the Digital Forensics course. Students with known criminal background or legal actions may not be able to become a member of Infragard and may be denied enrollment and/or progression in the program. These students are advised to seek an alternate education program. Students will be required to sign a program code of conduct that has a zero tolerance policy. Violation of the code of conduct will be grounds for removal from the program. Students who are unable to pass a criminal background check may find it difficult to obtain or stay employed in the Cybersecurity industry.
