Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The certificate in Cyber Policy provides students with an overview of the Constitutional, legal and public policy issues associated with the field of cybersecurity.  Just as the field of cybersecurity is vast, so is the study of all the associated legal and policy issues.  The certificate program educates students to be able to examine how the United States Constitution, United States laws and public policy relate to every aspect of cyberspace and cybersecurity.  In addition, the program addresses the complex interrelationship between the technical, legal, social, ethical, cultural and international aspects of cybersecurity and cyberspace operations.  Students will also learn about techniques to understand, assess and manage risk in complex and diverse cyberspace and networked systems.

With globalization and ever-increasing technology, the field of cyber policy is becoming increasingly relevant.  The proposed certificate addresses the growing national and international need for qualified individuals to work in the discipline.  

Students who complete the certificate will be able to:

  • Apply risk assessment and management techniques to real-world cyberspace problems
  • Analyze and assess the legal, ethical, social, international and cultural aspects of cyber policy
  • Create cyber policies for complex, diverse system environments
  • Analyze and assess the complexities associated with cyber conflict and develop cyber policies that address such conflict
  • Analyze and assess the implications of cyber espionage and develop policies to counter cyber espionage
