The Security IT Associate Program
IT security remains a top priority for companies of all sizes and across all industries. It makes sense — emerging malware threats combined with phishing scams, the proliferation of mobile devices and accidental misuse by well-meaning staff members conspire to make security experts a sought-after commodity. As a result the right IT security training courses can make all the difference, giving you an advantage in today’s information security driven world, establishing a foundation for ongoing career success. It all starts at New Horizons.
Managing IT security means effectively handling information — now an essential resource for the growth and success of any business. According to a recent CompTIA study, human error is the most common cause of information security breaches, with 80 percent of individuals believing that human error is caused by a lack of security knowledge, training and failure to follow security procedures. Malicious actors also remain a key concern; infiltrated networks or exfiltrated data can compromise customer confidence and damage day-to-day operations.
New Horizons Security IT Associate Program validates an individual’s technical competency in IT security. Students will learn to analyze, test, troubleshoot and evaluate existing network systems — such as local area networks (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN) — as well as perform network maintenance to ensure networks operate correctly with minimal interruption. Once you’ve completed the 10-week/180-hour course you’ll earn two IT security certifications: MTA Networking Fundamentals and MTA Security Fundamentals.
