Technology Pathway

ACC's Cybersecurity program prepares individuals to assess the security needs of computer and network systems, recommend safeguard solutions, and manage the implementation and maintenance of security devices, systems, and procedures. The program includes instruction in programming, systems analysis, networking, cryptography, security system design, applicable law and regulations, risk assessment and policy analysis, contingency planning, user access issues, investigation techniques, and troubleshooting. Upon successful completion of the program, students will have the needed background to prepare to take a number of industry certifications in the field of cybersecurity, including but not limited to, CompTIA Network+, CompTIA Security+, CompTIA Linux+, MTA (Microsoft Technology Associate) and/or MCSA (Microsoft Certified solutions Associate), and CompTIA Advanced Security Practitioner (CASP). A secure software developer develops security software and integrates security into applications software during the course of design and development.
