Cyber Threat Research and Analytics MicroMaster's
With the world more interconnected than ever before, criminal and nefarious actors have learned to leverage technology for their own personal gain. As such, the need has never been greater for students to have the ability to identify and combat this ever present and growing cyber threat. Carlow University's Master's of Fraud and Forensics and the National Cyber-Forensics and Training Alliance (NCFTA) are partnering to deliver the MicroMaster's in Cyber Threat Research and Analytics. Our program will leverage the expertise of professionals in the community who are working with industry and law enforcement on a daily basis to disrupt adversary activity and prevent future attacks.
This is a nine-credit offering that will engage experts in the areas of accounting, finance, law enforcement, government, and the the private sector. This MicroMaster's certificate will provide graduate level training in the techniques and tools used to investigate, respond to, and remediate various types of cyber crime and cyber-enabled crime.
Through our partnership with the NCFTA, our courses will cover training for topics such as understanding cyber-threats, identification of threat actors, and how to conduct of online investigations. We will explore threats on the clear net and the dark web and their impacts on the private for-profit, non-profit, public, and government sectors.
