Central Texas College (CTC) recently announced the addition of two new online computer management programs to be offered this fall. The first is an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Information Security Management and the second is a Security Management Specialist Certificate of Completion. Both courses can be completed solely online and will be available with the fall 2009 semester.
CTC now offers 22 online certificate programs and 21 online degree programs.
Students enrolling in the Information Security Management degree plan will be required to complete 63 credit hours. Some of the courses included in the degree program include Fundamentals of Information Security, Firewalls and Network Security, Security Assessment and Auditing, Integrated Software Applications and Operating System Security. The program is designed to provide students with the tools to determine policies and procedures to safeguard data on computers and networks and monitor compliance. As more personal, business and national security information is being stored on computers, more career opportunities are becoming available in the area of information security.
The Information Security Management Specialist certificate program provides students with the knowledge of computer security in courses such as Fundamentals of Information Security, Security Management Practices and Project Management Software. The certificate requires 31 credit hours and can be completed in one year (two semesters).
Online registration for these and other programs is underway now for returning students. New students can register August 17-28. Fall classes begin August 31. Information about the new programs can be found at www.ctcd.edu using the Programs of Study link.
