The cyber security and computer forensics technology program covers areas that are identified in the Emergency Preparedness and Response, Information Analysis and Infrastructure Protection divisions of the Department of Homeland Security. Major topics of the program include: risk and threat assessment on computer system and data, developing procedures to prevent and react to data and computer-related security breaches, and computer system security plan documentation.

Students graduating from Stark State College with a cyber security and computer forensics technology degree will assess a company’s risk, document and implement security procedures and check for security breaches in their systems. Cyber security and computer forensic graduates can find employment in both the private and public sector, including positions related to homeland security.

Students interested in pursuing a 2+2 bachelor of science degree should consult their academic advisor prior to initial enrollment in the courses.
