What background knowledge is necessary?
This Specialization covers the fundamentals of cybersecurity in the organization at a beginners level. It is beginners level because no prior experience or courses in Information Systems, Information security and Assurance, Cybersecurity, or Information Technology are necessary. However, it is a college-level course in which learners are expected to critically analyze the subject matter and apply it to their workplace scenarios.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
We highly recommend taking the courses in order as each course builds on elements learned in the previous course. However each course may also act as stand-alone and you are welcome to register for each individually if you have previous learning experience in that subject area.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Specialization?
This specialization will help the learner understand the ever-changing field of cybersecurity and its impact on the business environment. Learners will begin this specialization by learning current trends in mobile technology and how organizational policy is critical to maintain information security. Next, learners will be introduced to devices that support computer-to-computer interaction and how these devices can become "soft entry" points for hackers. The third course illustrates the "X-Factor" or the human influence in technology. Finally, learners will consider best practices in order for organizations to secure their networks. In terms of careers, future managers and leaders will need to learn about cybersecurity and the risk environment that results. This specialization will better position learners to enter into jobs that require strategic thought, organizational planning, and risk impact analysis. Cybersecurity is often overlooked in these areas. The specialization will prepare you to address those future needs and support your organization in cybersecurity awareness and risk mitigation.
