General presentation

Cybersecurity has become a key concern for all managers of IT systems, networks and web services, especially since they are often required to provide access to their information systems to clients, suppliers and partners.

Our course in information systems and network security governance offers a comprehensive approach that develops the skills needed to create and implement a security plan, so as to protect crucial resources against internal and external attacks.

It is taught part-time, a few days per month for six months, so that participants can continue to work while studying. It is offered in blended-learning format, combining remote sessions and in-person classes.
