To help meet the demand for professionals with the skills to enhance cybersecurity in Canada, the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) has launched a new online Graduate Certificate in Cybercrime Analysis.
This new post-graduate program is designed to provide the advanced knowledge and applied, analytical skills to help professionals prevent, detect and respond to the constantly evolving threats of cybercrime that transcend national borders, and are often international in scope.
“Cybercrime is an ever-increasing threat that requires constant vigilance,” said Michel Tarko, JIBC president and CEO in a statement. “We’re pleased to offer a new graduate-level certificate program specifically addressing cybersecurity and cybercrime that bridges the gap in available offerings across Canada.”
The new graduate certificate will be offered part-time, fully online, and thus available to anyone in Canada from new students interested in pursuing a career as a cybersecurity analyst to mid-career professionals looking to expand their skillset to advance their careers.
In addition to providing foundational intelligence analysis skills, the program will offer students a broad understanding of cybercrime analysis and enable them to conduct intelligence investigations that can be used and applied in various court proceedings. Courses are designed to meet the needs of public security and law enforcement agencies.
The first cohort of the program is slated to begin September 2021.
