MNTC's Cyber Defense Program prepares students to plan, coordinate and implement security measures for networking systems. Students first learn the basics of repair and maintenance of computer hardware, software and operating systems along with the installation, configuration and troubleshooting of network hardware. Then they are introduced to basic security principles involving networks and operating systems, including the current threats, vulnerabilities and policies of electronic commerce. They gain an understanding of the principles of risk management, security architectures, incident handling, disaster recovery and secure systems administration. Students track and patch security holes after a breach of security has occurred. Students gain skills required for certifications offered by Microsoft, CIW, CompTIA, Novell, and Cisco, along with additional security certifications for Security Certified Network Specialist (SCNP), Security Certified Network Professional (SCNP), and Security Certified Network Architect (SCNA).
Students who successfully complete this program have opportunities to become employed by Moore, Norman, and Oklahoma City Metro IT and computer companies.
