Defending And Safeguarding The Fortress
In a time of escalating security threats, computer crime and cyber warfare, organizations must be proactive in combating attackers and protecting information assets. IT Security Specialists leverage an in-depth understanding of information security risks, threats, technologies and procedures to design and implement secure computer systems.
They install, configure and upgrade security software, educate employees on computer security, monitor networks for security breaches, and ultimately develop plans to safeguard computer files against unauthorized modification, destruction or disclosure. In the event of a successful attack, IT security specialists must respond with the appropriate countermeasures.
The Security IT Associate (SITA) program will utilize security concepts, tools, and procedures to react to various security incidents regarding network, compliance, operational vulnerability, and access control identity management. Graduates will know how to provide IT assistance to people and organizations using computer software and equipment.

Ultra High Job Market Demand
Job market demand for computer security specialists is high across all organizational structures and verticals, including corporations, education institutions, medical practices and a range of public sector and government agencies.
Demand for information security analysts is expected to be very high. Cyber attacks have grown in frequency and sophistication over the last few years, and many organizations are behind in their ability to detect these attacks. Analysts will be needed to come up with innovative solutions to prevent hackers from stealing critical information or creating havoc on computer networks.
The federal government is expected to greatly increase its use of information security analysts to protect the nation’s critical information technology (IT) systems. In addition, as the healthcare industry expands its use of electronic medical records, ensuring patients’ privacy and protecting personal data are becoming more important. More information security analysts are likely to be needed to create the safeguards that will satisfy patients’ concerns.
