Develop the skills to combat cyber threats and help shape the future of privacy and protection.

In the graduate certificate in cybersecurity management and policy program at University of Maryland Global Campus, you'll examine governmental and organizational responses to cybersecurity threats. You'll assess technical and organizational controls that can prevent and detect cyber intrusions and create and assess policies and procedures to restore operations after a cyber attack. You'll explore the legal foundations of cybersecurity as well as the roles of government, international, and private organizations.

The program also provides you with a broad analytical framework for evaluating and solving cybersecurity problems. The curriculum features emerging topics in the field and was developed with the help of an advisory board of senior security executives, so what you're learning is on the cutting edge of cybersecurity.
