(Harrison County Campus)

Cybersecurity Technology is one of the hottest technology degrees in the world due to the increase in attacks on government websites and credit/financial institutions. Cybersecurity technicians plan and carry out security measures to protect an organization’s computer networks and systems. The responsibilities of this field are continually expanding as the number of cyberattacks increases. This program gives students the skills to develop cybersecurity strategies and critical software installation plans.

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to four-year college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with an MGCCC advisor.

All students completing a career or technical program must complete an MGCCC Board-approved Technical Skills Attainment where applicable. Students should see an advisor for further details.
