From a booming cyber ecosystem, straight to you.

New York City is a cybersecurity hotspot.

Be Confident. Be Prepared.

The online Master’s in Cybersecurity is your gateway to acquiring two critical professional certifications: the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) and the CompTIA Network+.

Yeshiva Katz online students will be qualified to sit for the CISSP exam upon completion of the program. The CISSP, one of the world’s leading cybersecurity and IT security certifications, is granted by the International Information System Security Certification Consortium, or (ISC)². It confirms that students have the necessary skills to perform various security functions and pursue an advanced career in IT security. (ISC)² supports those who hold the certification with a broad array of exclusive resources, educational tools, and peer-to-peer networking opportunities.

Our Cybersecurity Bridge Course, which fulfills the prerequisite for the online Master’s in Cybersecurity program, covers some of the same content you’ll find on the Network+ certification exam, offered by the Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA). It also draws directly from the CISSP prep course for specific exam content. The bridge course covers a wide range of topics, including how to design and implement functional networks; configure, manage, and maintain essential network devices; use devices such as switches and routers to segment network traffic and create resilient networks; identify benefits and drawbacks of existing network configuration; implement network security standards and protocols; troubleshoot network problems; and support the creation of virtualized networks.

Upon graduation from the program, you’ll be sufficiently prepared for the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), Certified Information Security Manager (CISM), and ISACA-CRISC exams. Our online Master’s in Cybersecurity gives you a leg up on the competition in this high-stakes, credential-driven field, and it can position you to earn the six-figure salary that comes with the right certification.3
