The information we input and store on our computers wouldn’t be secure if it weren’t for people like information security analysts.

These experts plan, implement, upgrade, and monitor security measures to protect computer networks and information. Their jobs may also entail developing plans to safeguard computer files against accidental or unauthorized modification, destruction, or disclosure; determining when to update virus software; and keeping track of violations of computer security procedures.

The Information Technology program at Durham Tech covers the skills you need to enter this career. Students gain the ability to discuss complex technical issues with the computer’s user as well as learn about operating systems, networking, and security.
