About

Want to be at the frontier of defending against the biggest 21st-century threat to global humanity? Identity theft, viruses and the infiltration of government and business networks are becoming increasingly common and more severe. Learn to track, analyze and counter these digital security threats with the Cyber Threat Intelligence and Defense program of Johnson & Wales University.

Overview

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 37 percent growth of information security analysts from 2012 to 2022 in manufacturing, defense, public administration, healthcare and retail trade industries.

According to Burning Glass Technologies, more than a quarter million cyber security jobs have been posted nationally, which accounts for more than 10 percent of all posted IT jobs.

In the Cyber Threat Intelligence and Defense program of Johnson & Wales University, you’ll discover trends and create behavioral profiles of adversary groups to combat attacks against computers and networks in the public and private sector.

You’ll blend physical reconnaissance and defense with modern information technology techniques, including setting up firewalls, scanning for viruses, and routinely checking for breaches in security.

Learn incident response techniques that detect, scope and respond to internal and external intelligence, decreasing cyber-attackers’ likelihood of success with each intrusion attempt.

You’ll also identify, extract, prioritize and leverage intelligence from advanced persistent threat (APT) intrusions; deploy countermeasures; and gauge the performance of planned and installed enterprise-level information security systems.
