With the increase of computer and network attacks, information security has become a very serious concern. The Information Security Certificate offered at Governors State University provides the coursework needed to respond to the security concerns of government, academia, business, and industry.
The Committee on National Security Standards (CNSS) recently announced that the program offered by GSU meets 100 percent of their certification standards. CNSS operates under direction of the Department of Defense. Its functions include providing a national forum for the discussion of information security issues and setting national standards.
