The Cybersecurity Technology program is designed to provide students with the skills to recognize and prevent threats to information and information systems and to master techniques for defense against such threats. Security models, intrusion detection, incident handling, firewalls, perimeter protection, and network security laws are covered in the course work.
This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to 4-year college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a MGCCC advisor.
All students completing a career or technical program must complete either the MS-CPAS (Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System) or an MGCCC Board- approved Technical Skills Attainment assessment where applicable. Students should see an advisor for further details.
