|Academics: Certifications: ISSE|
Today, professional certificate programs exist that attempt to address the ISSE void; however, these are essentially "cookbook" and process-oriented. The student merely has to memorize the process for these certificates, and this results in individuals lacking the knowledge and analysis approaches required to address the variety and complexity of real systems.
As a result, NPS, in partnership with the NSA, has developed a certificate program in ISSE. The course sequence will provide the knowledge and analytical skills required to contribute productively in both existing and new system developments where cyber security is a concern.
Take the Challenge... Become an ISSE!
The ISSE certificate program at NPS focuses on security theories, principles and practices of systems security engineering from a life cycle perspective. The five courses afford students the knowledge and skills required to derive security requirements, design and develop secure systems, and analyze the security posture of deployed systems. Risk assessment and mitigation are addressed in accordance with the Risk Management Framework defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and regulatory directives and guidelines for federal information systems and national security systems, e.g., NIST SP 800-53, CNSS Instruction 1253.
