The Cyber Security Certificate is designed to prepare graduates to work in the Information Technology field as Computer Support Specialists with an emphasis in cyber security. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2016-2017 Edition, employment of computer support specialists is expected to increase by 18% from 2014 to 2024, which is much faster than the average for all occupations.1 Demand for these workers will result as organizations and individuals continue to adopt the newest forms of technology. As technology becomes more complex and widespread, support specialists will be needed in greater numbers to implement technology solutions and resolve the technical problems that arise. Businesses, especially, will demand greater levels of support, as information technology has become essential in the business environment. "We lead Internet-connected, digital lives. From our desks and homes to on the go, we work, learn and play online. Even when we are not directly connected to the Internet, our critical infrastructure - the vast, worldwide connection of computers, data and websites supporting our everyday lives through financial transactions, transportation systems, healthcare records, emergency response systems, personal communications and more - impacts everyone. Cybersecurity is the mechanism that maximizes our ability to grow commerce, communications, community and content in a connected world."2
