AACC to offer first certified security, cybercrime courses

Anne Arundel Community College has become the first college in the United States to have its curriculum in information security and cybercrime certified as meeting the national training standard for Information Systems Security Professionals No. 4011, one of five national standards for education and training requirements in information assurance for information systems security professionals.

The college submitted its application in mid-January, seeking approval for both credit and noncredit instruction. A national board of subject matter experts reviewed the submission.

FOR THE RECORD - An item in Sunday's Education Notes incorrectly described a certification received by Anne Arundel Community College. It became the first community college in the United States to have its curriculum in information security and cybercrime certified as meeting the national training standard for Information Systems Security Professionals No. 4011, one of five national standards for education and training in information assurance.

The college received state approval last year to offer an associate of applied sciences degree in cybercrime and a certificate in cybercrime.

The curriculum is offered through the AACC Cybercrime Studies Institute. All courses are taught in a specially equipped training facility and computer lab housed at AACC's Glen Burnie Town Center site. Information: 410-777-2975.
