Protect Against Cybersecurity Threats

With cybercrimes on the rise, the need to protect and defend our most vital data has never been greater. From private corporations and government entities to an individual’s personal finances and health records – network security administrators play a key role in the development of network security systems and protocols to protect our vulnerable digital infrastructure.

Network security administrators ensure the security of an organization’s network from threats originating from inside and outside the organization. In addition to writing network security policies, administrators perform frequent audits to ensure that the security policies are up-to-date and being followed. Administrators must also take corrective steps when faced with a security breach.

South Seattle College’s Network Security Administration program provides the technical skills and practical knowledge needed for students who plan to enter the field of information security. Areas of focus include network fundamentals, ethics, computer forensics and security.
