ITACS is proud to offer a new Cyber Security Track.
As the field of cyber-security greets new threats and regulations every single day, Temple’s Information Technology Auditing and Cyber-Security program is dedicated to staying ahead of the curve. In pursuit of this goal, the program has created a brand new Cyber Security Track, now offered to ITACS’ ever-growing student body (whose numbers soared from 11 students in 2012 to approximately 50 this year).
Data Analytics for IT Auditors – Basic data analysis concepts are presented and then applied. Examines the emerging approach of continuous audit and using data analytics to investigate datasets produced by audit and security controls.
- Intrusion Detection & Response – Students learn the variety of tool and techniques used to prevent attacks, quickly identify successful attacks, detect advanced persistent threats and monitor systems activity.
- Securing the Digital Infrastructure – Examines issues related to securing the components of a company’s infrastructure, reviewing network, firewall, and basic operating system security issues.
- Ethical Hacking – Introduces students to hacking strategies and tactics used by ethical or “White Hat” hackers. A theoretical and exercise-based exploration of Security Penetration through vulnerability exploitation.
- Cyber Security Capstone – Reviews all topics covered in the track; prepares for SSCP exam; requires students to research an emerging topic in the field of IT assurance.
ITACS continues to post impressive achievement numbers, as 80% of ITACS students passed the CISA on their first try, and 100% secured jobs after graduation—figures that reflect not just the quality of the training but also mounting demand for professionals armed with ITACS skills.
