Nashville State Community College Offering New Technical Certificate in Cybersecurity


Nashville State Community CollegeNashville, TN – Nashville State Community College recently announced the addition of a new certificate program being offered through the Computer Technology department.

Students completing the requirements in the cybersecurity based program receive an Information Security Technical Certificate.

According to Kevin Harris, coordinator of the Nashville State program, market demand for program graduates is on the rise. “We have received numerous requests from the business community seeking students capable of handling computer security issues. The program emphasizes the importance of security policies and the techniques to effectively design such policies,” stated Harris.

Janet Napolitano, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, recently described cyberattacks as “the most quickly evolving and most troubling set of threats” that her department sees. A current bill in the U.S. Senate would allow the Homeland Security Department to require certain high-risk computer systems such as utilities, banks, and transportation systems to meet security standards.

The new program at Nashville State covers methods employed by hackers to compromise computing devices and prepares students to recognize compromised systems. The program will be offered on the main campus at 120 White Bridge Road and also at our new satellite campus in Clarksville located at 1760 Wilma Rudolph Boulevard.
