By Emily Peck December 8, 2020

We’re excited to announce the launch of BrainStation’s Cybersecurity Certificate Course

The Cybersecurity Certificate Course is designed to provide individuals and organizations with a detailed understanding of how to protect mission-critical data and secure day-to-day operations. Taught by industry leaders, the course uses an applied, project-based learning model that ensures professionals gain hands-on experience implementing new security skills and knowledge.

“As businesses expand their online presence and increase their digital footprint, we’re proud to empower learners on how to protect their businesses’ critical information with this in-depth professional development course,” said Jason Field, BrainStation Founder and CEO.

Secure Your Assets and Data

In the era of big data, cybersecurity is increasingly important in protecting digital data from damage, theft, or attack. Digital data can include industry information, intellectual property, identifiable information, personal and protected health information, and more.

Neglecting to implement an effective cybersecurity strategy can leave businesses and organizations vulnerable to severe cybercrimes, including the loss of sensitive corporate and customer information and a disruption of service and internal systems. To understand the scope of this problem, Cybersecurity Ventures predicts cybercrime will cost the world more than $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015.

Digital leaders today must understand how security threats exploit our most commonly-used technologies. The Cybersecurity Certificate Course is for those who want a practical, leading-edge understanding of the threat landscape, security best practices, and industry techniques,” said Field.
