List of Accredited Online Degrees

An Information Technology and Computer Science degree will give students the advanced knowledge and skills needed to succeed in the competitive industry. The ever evolving IT and computer science industry is changing the way organizations conduct business. Computer Science degrees can be divided into several concentrations that are specific to an individual’s career or personal aspirations.

Information security is one concentration within the IT curriculums. The security of information is of utmost importance among all organizations. The practice of defending information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, perusal, inspection, recording or destruction is in general terms what IT securities main objectives are. IT security is most often applied when describing the protection of a computer system. The expansive growth and usage of computers among daily activities in organizations has increased the threat of unauthorized information becoming available without consent. IT security specialists are found in many large organizations due to the mass amounts of data and information being transmitted.

Another key responsibility of IT security professionals is to not only protect information, but to also ensure is availability to those in need. Data and information can be lost, destroyed or mixed from unforeseen incidents such as natural disasters, computer/server malfunction or physical theft. A common resolution to such dangers is to provide and maintain an off-site backup of the data.

The important role of an IT security specialist will give students enrolling in the degree programs the confidence and required training to seek career opportunities within Government agencies, the military, large or small corporations, financial institutions, hospitals, and private businesses. All the above mentioned organizations accrue confidential information about their employees, customers, products, research and financial status. Most of the much needed information is now collected, processed and stored on electronic computers and transmitted through networks to other computers. The collection of such information, in many organizations, is required and creates the ever growing need of well-educated and trained professionals to perform the critical tasks, efficiently and effectively.

In many higher education institutions, computer science and IT security students are able to choose from many different types of interdisciplinary courses to broaden the areas of in-depth study, because a full breadth of knowledge may be useful in the application of information safety beyond the scope of traditional applications. A degree in IT security will give graduates the scientific aspects behind information technology and can apply a technology concentration in the business and communication of secure information sharing. The growing emphasis IT and computer science have on e-commerce, e-business and business information will encourage students to enroll in Associates, Bachelors or Masters programs.
