Cyber Security are essential to effectively protecting our economy, businesses, organizations, and private information. Bank accounts, corporate websites, access to essential services, logistics, sensitive military communications, etc. are all vulnerable to cyber terrorism and attack. There is a dangerous shortage of skilled workers capable of defending against attacks and data breach in the United States. This laces our digital information and infrastructure at risk. Cyber Crime is increasing at a rapid pace creating the need for trained cyber security professionals. TCC’s Networking and Cyber Security program curriculum provides the technical skills and knowledge for students who plan to enter the field of information security.

TCC’s Networking and Cyber Security program prepares the student for a career in database administration, network administration and technical support with a focus on cyber security. The program includes a series of technical core courses that provide hands-on knowledge and skills in systems, data, networking, and security concepts. The program includes a series of non-technical core courses related to business, project, and team communication skills. Advanced course work includes training in database management, Windows and Linux servers, networking, routing, security, and virtualization. This program focuses on the techniques, policies, and procedures that prepare students to secure and defend critical assets. Major areas of study include network fundamentals, ethics, risk assessment and remediation, threat identification and mitigation techniques, and security best practices. This program also provides the foundation for many industry certifications through Microsoft, COMPTIA, CISCO, and Dell/EMC.
