Cyber Security A.A.S.

Degree Name: Cyber Security A.A.S.
Degree or Program: Computer Science
Degree Type: Associate of Applied Science Degree
Description:
The AAS degree in Cyber Security turns more focus away from networking skills in favor of skills related more directly towards security. This is accomplished by lessening the number of CCNA-related classes in favor of more security-related skills. Cyber Security Essentials specifically focuses on skills that are needed generally to fully understand cyber security issues. It includes developing skills in programming languages, database administration, and Web-oriented technologies. The focus is on understanding the technologies, so that cyber-attacks may be more fully discovered, analyzed, and prevented.
