The Information Security and Digital Forensics program from Niagara University equips individuals with the knowledge necessary for the Certified Information Systems Security Management Professionals (CISSP) certification. Students are trained utilizing professional applications in computer and mobile forensics, and provided knowledge and expertise in network security, ethical hacking and privacy. This training occurs in one of our new on-campus information security labs.
The ISDF program isn’t only intended for computer and information sciences majors, but also for students majoring in criminal justice, business, healthcare and accounting.
The demand for specialized information security workers is on the rise, and the future indicates that this field will continue to grow nationwide. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics states that the information security field will grow by 18 percent.
Additionally, the New York State Department of Labor has outlined a similar statewide growth rate (17.2 percent) for the same period.
