NEW BRUNSWICK, NEW JERSEY, USA, March 12, 2018 / — The Center for Innovation Education at Rutgers University (RIE) is proud to announce the next start date of its intensive 26-week online Cyber Security Certificate Program beginning April 16, 2018. The program has been successful at attracting and developing young professionals interested in a career in Cyber Security, one of the fastest growing and most in demand professions in the US today. The course is being offered to the public as a non-credit certificate program through Rutgers RIE.

Students will gain a broad foundation of defensive and offensive cyber operations skills, including open source intelligence gathering, disk and memory forensics, network traffic analysis, exploiting websites, servers, and application software, reverse engineering, evading antivirus and intrusion detection systems, and social engineering and spearphishing.

Graduates of the Cyber Security Certificate program will:
• Solve state-of-the-art cyber operations/information security problems – Students will confront and solve difficult, authentic problems across the full range of cyber disciplines.
• Experience hands-on learning – The learn-by-doing approach is completely hands on – students will be asked to solve a progression of problems of increasing difficulty and will have access to our expert faculty to assist in completing tasks.
• Gain practical, job-ready skills and knowledge – In order to defend a network one must learn to think like an attacker, that is, to understand the techniques that sophisticated adversaries use. This curriculum was developed to understand and protect systems and networks against internal and external threats.
• Leave with a professional Cyber Operations and Information Security Portfolio – Graduates will have a portfolio of work exhibiting how they tackle real-world problems, and the offensive and defensive skills they have used to mitigate threats.

This course is offered to US citizens and green card holders only and will be limited to the first 75 accepted candidates. All applicants will be required to take a risk-free online assessment which will be evaluated by the course faculty prior to acceptance into the course.

Socratic Arts, Inc. developed the curriculum being offered by Rutgers RIE. The curriculum and program was originally funded by the Department of Defense under agreement number C5-16-0023 issued by the Consortium for Command, Control, Communications, and Computer Technologies (C5).

"In keeping with Rutgers’ Center for Innovation Education mission of providing cutting edge, high demand employment curriculum, we are pleased to once again offer this challenging and stimulating Cyber Security course that will prepare graduates to tackle the complex challenge of protecting and securing computer networks," said Stephen Carter, Director of RIE.

Ray Bareiss, Senior Vice President of Socratic Arts, Inc., said, "We are proud to once again be offering this unique curriculum to the qualified students of the Rutgers Center for Innovation Education.
