The UCCS Computer Science Department offers a set of four graduate courses on campus leading to a certificate in Network System Security Certificate. Individuals who engineer computer-based systems, or develop policy and doctrine for these systems where information assurance is an objective, require knowledge of the methods, techniques, and tools used in information operations. Information operations include those actions taken to gain, defend, or attack information or information systems. The threats and vulnerabilities are applicable in the commercial as well as the military world.

This certificate provides a solid foundation in communication system concepts, a broad introduction to the entire spectrum of information operations, and advanced study of information assurance topics. The final two courses cover in-depth the protection of information through cryptographic methods and the design and management of systems from a security viewpoint.
