Cyber security degree program now includes CompTIA Security+ certificate

The Friends University cyber security degree program prepares students with the skills needed to protect people, systems, applications and technologies. Beginning this fall, the CompTIA Security+ certificate is included with the degree program. Students who enroll in the cyber security degree program at least part-time this fall will also be eligible for a $500 scholarship to be applied to their first semester.

“We recognize the importance of the certificate in our program and we are thrilled to give students an opportunity to advance their future career goals in a competitive marketplace,” said Jonathan Lanning, assistant professor of cyber security and program director of cyber security at Friends University. “Students can also be assured they will be prepared for a wide variety of cyber-related certification exams with the necessary training in an ever-changing technology landscape.”

Friends University cyber students will experience real-time, hands-on training in the state-of-the-art INTRUST Bank Cyber Security Laboratory, which utilizes the most comprehensive cyber defense training platform available.
