Online Cyber Security Academy

The Cyber Academy is a progression of three courses designed to impart a strong foundation of defensive and offensive cyber security skills in 34 weeks of full-time study. In partnership with Purdue Online, Socratic Arts' Cyber Academy and designed in conjunction with DoD-recommended experts, this program enables students to learn and practice skills essential for success in all areas of information security.

Technical and soft skills required for cyber security professionals include:
Understanding complex, novel problems
Effectively researching solutions
Designing and testing solutions
Making evidence-based decisions
Communicating effectively with stakeholders

Given the constantly changing nature of threats and challenges, these fundamental cyber security skills are arguably of equal or greater importance than the task-specific skills students learn. Students must pass each successive course to be eligible to continue through this remote cyber security certificate program .
