Our Cyber Security for IT Professionals Program – developed with the support of TD Bank Group – is an entry-level program intended for IT professionals who wish to transition into a cyber security field. This transition involves more than just acquiring cyber security knowledge. You need to meet the fundamental competency requirements in cyber security. Learn business-oriented approaches to cyber security, how to increase your engagement in complex problem solving and systems thinking (including cyber security analytics, incident response, security system design, awareness, training, and more), and how to engage a broader audience group (including executives, managers, users, and media). This cyber security program has been designed to support the fast-growing demand for hands-on cyber security experts that will help secure and protect our future and is intended to provide you with the opportunity to upskill for future jobs.
Career options typically include such roles as vulnerability analyst, threat intel analyst, phishing analyst, Cyber Security Operations Centre (CSOC) analyst, Computer Security Incident Response Team (CSIRT) analyst, and watch analyst.
For each course from this program that you pass, you earn a micro-credential, which is provided to you as a digital badge that can be posted to social media platforms (such as LinkedIn). Once you have completed all the requirements of this program, you can request to receive a certificate of completion using the department contact information on this web page.
