(Gloucester Township, NJ) – Camden County College is now offering a new Cybersecurity program designed to provide students with an affordable path toward a career in the fast-growing cybersecurity field. The curriculum will prepare students for both transfer and career opportunities.
“This is a ground-up program designed for everyone regardless of whether they have little or no computer expertise or are an established information technology professional looking to expand their marketability,” said CCC President Donald Borden. “All you need is the desire to become one of the most sought-after professionals in the technology field today.”
According to the US Department of Homeland Security website, as technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, the demand for an experienced and qualified workforce to protect our nation’s networks and information systems will only continue to grow. Information security and cybersecurity are rapidly growing industries with increased workforce needs. The average IT-related job typically earns salaries at least 50 percent higher than the average private sector job.
There are currently over half a million job openings nationwide in cybersecurity. Career opportunities include Information Security Engineer, Data Scientist and Computer Forensics.
CCC’s courses for the Cybersecurity Associate in Applied Science Degree will be offered beginning on Sept. 3 at the College’s Blackwood and Cherry Hill locations. Subjects include Database Security and Protection, Introduction to Homeland Security, and Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing. Graduates will be prepared for industry certification in CompTIA A+, Net+, Security+ and Cisco-CCENT.
