Minor in Information Security with Online Courses 

Why minor in our Information Security at Saint Leo?

Enroll in the information security courses online that will set the foundation for a rewarding career in a growing field. Saint Leo offers an Information Security minor that will prepare you for success in the classroom and in the field.  If you’ve ever had an email account hacked, you know the importance of internet security. Computer networks worldwide hold vital financial, healthcare and legal information that — in the hands of the wrong people — could lead to bankruptcy, lawsuits or worse. Because every company needs to be connected to a global network, they could use a skilled information security professional to protect their data.

Saint Leo also offers an undergraduate certificate in Information Security.  Both the online minor and the certificate require 18 credits. The minor can be taken with any major. The certificate is designed to be taken with any major or as a stand-alone qualification in information security.
