While information and communication opportunities are increasing, security challenges are increasing as well.  In 2001, more than 34,000 attacks on Internet computers were reported to the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT).   In our global marketplace, an attack on one computer has the potential to affect the operations of many interdependent systems.  In the wake of September 11, 2001, the U.S. and other nations have become even more concerned about the threat to computer infrastructure and information systems through the potential misuse of computer networks and the Internet.

While there is a need for reliable computer systems that provide security and privacy to both businesses and consumers, a need also exists for systems security professionals who can help design, configure, implement, manage, support and secure these computer systems.

Employees with knowledge of information systems security are now considered to be a vital part of many information technology infrastructure teams.   Graduates of the Computer Network Administration & Security Management (CNASM) program in the CIS Department at Mt. SAC will have a background that can help them pursue career opportunities in a variety of entry-level positions involving information systems security, some of which may include: security professionals as part of software development and information technology infrastructure teams; security technicians working with Internet service providers, application service providers and systems integrators; and security auditors.
