Certificate in Organizational Security

As industries continue to rely on technology for systems and operations, companies are at an increasing risk of security blind spots, breaches and cyber attacks that could devastate their information infrastructure. Drexel’s new Certificate in Organizational Security provides broad knowledge on securing the business information infrastructure, cloud security, assurance and forensics by establishing a sound security policy.

An interdisciplinary post-baccalaureate certificate program jointly offered by Drexel’s LeBow College of Business and College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), the organizational security certificate trains students to secure and protect the integrity and safety of a business information infrastructure.

This certificate is part of a suite of five business information technology certificates that can be applied toward Drexel’s Master of Science in Business Information Technology (MSBIT), also offered through LeBow and CCI. Three certificates must be completed to receive the MS degree, including our required, foundational Certificate in Information Technology and Management.
