About

The Identity Management and Cyber Security  program at the Naval Postgraduate School provides individuals whose organizations depend upon cyberspace a broad overview of cyber security technology and how to create a balance between risks and benefits based upon the physical and virtual assets requiring protection. 

Overview

The Identity Management and Cyber Security  program at the Naval Postgraduate School ocuses on cyber security as enabling technology for a broad range of enterprise initiatives and is intended for leaders in a wide range of government activities regardless of organizational specialization. The MAIDMCS program consists of 12 courses selected to provide breadth and depth in the latest security technologies.

Designed to accommodate busy individuals, the Master of Arts degree program is offered in a hybrid mode that requires participants to be in residence (at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California or possibly another location to be determined) two weeks each quarter (for a total of 12 weeks). Participants complete the balance of their coursework via network-based distance learning methods. The program can also be taken entirely at NPS and is of shorter duration in this mode. Participants complete an applications project for which a written report is required.

Outcomes

  • Understand the impact of acquisition and architectural decisions on the security of information and systems.
