This is a new program. A group of companies approached Seneca to create cybersecurity curriculum before the pandemic. There are technical people able to fill roles but it's hard to find technical people to manage these projects -- I think that's why this was born. Courses include OS security, ethical hacking, mobile app security design, firewalls/VPNs, computer forensics and more, and it ends with a capstone project. Seneca also offers CISSP certification training.
