LSC’s Network Administration and Cybersecurity Degree

We are really excited to be offering students additional security classes so that they can receive an A.A.S. in Network Administration and Cybersecurity. The majority of freshman decided to change to this new planner before next year.  Incoming freshman will all be using this planner. To make the transition easier, students who have completed one year already will have the opportunity to take CIS 1810 Network Administration: Security this summer.  This course won’t be offered in summer in any other years.  The new classes that have been added to the planner are the following:

  • CIS 2811    Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems Fundamentals
  • CIS 2812    Network Security Fundamentals
  • CIS 2813    Network Forensics and Incident Response
  • CIS 2814    Ethical Hacking and Systems Defense

It’s going to be a lot of fun for all of us, because we love cybersecurity!
