Post-grad certificate to support growing demand for skilled analysts in security, law enforcement and business
To help meet the growing demand for professionals with the skills to enhance cybersecurity in Canada, the Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) has launched a new online Graduate Certificate in Cybercrime Analysis.
This new post-graduate program is designed to provide the advanced knowledge and applied, analytical skills to help professionals prevent, detect and respond to the constantly evolving threats of cybercrime that transcend national borders, and are often international in scope.
“Cybercrime is an ever-increasing threat that requires constant vigilance,” said Dr. Michel Tarko, JIBC President and CEO. “We’re pleased to offer a new graduate-level certificate program specifically addressing cybersecurity and cybercrime that bridges the gap in available offerings across Canada.”
The new graduate certificate will be offered part-time, fully online, and thus available to anyone in Canada from new students interested in pursuing a career as a cybersecurity analyst to mid-career professionals looking to expand their skillset to advance their careers.
In addition to providing foundational intelligence analysis skills, the program will offer students a broad understanding of cybercrime analysis and enable them to conduct intelligence investigations that can be used and applied in various court proceedings. Courses are taught by leading industry specialists with extensive experience in their respective fields. It has been designed to meet the needs of various public security and law enforcement agencies and is highly relevant to various industry sectors including banking, finance, accounting and other related business sectors.
“JIBC’s Justice & Public Safety Division is very proud of its intelligence analysis and tactical criminal analysis programs,” said Dr. Stuart Ruttan, Dean of the School of Criminal Justice & Security and Office of International Affairs. “The new graduate certificate in cybercrime analysis will provide our graduates with access to education, training and internationally-recognized credentials to assist them in being a part of the solution in the battle against cybercrime in our economy, and society in general.”
The first cohort of the program is slated to begin September 2021. For more information and to apply, visit the Graduate Certificate in Cybercrime Analysis program page.
