The New Brunswick Community College has announced it will offer a one-year program in cybersecurity beginning next September. By introducing this advanced post-grad program at its Saint John Campus, NBCC, in partnership with CyberNB, aims to help meet growing demand for cybersecurity expertise in New Brunswick.
“This new program will provide graduates with the skills and knowledge that industry is seeking and help expand the cybersecurity infrastructure in New Brunswick,” said Marilyn Luscombe, CEO and President at NBCC in a statement this week.
CyberNB, a special agency of Opportunities NB, said that New Brunswick is the Canadian hub of cybersecurity and the first province to develop a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy.
Allen Dillon, the managing director of CyberNB said “partnering with academia and industry is a critical component of our strategy to help mitigate the global shortage of cybersecurity professionals.”
The new program will provide graduates with the skills and knowledge that industry is seeking, and help expand the cybersecurity infrastructure in New Brunswick.
Prerequisites for this program are a diploma or degree in network administration or computer science or equivalent experience in network administration.
