Information Security Certifications



Information security professionals are highly sought-after for their deep technical knowledge and the critical role they play in safeguarding organizational assets and the private data of customers, employees and others who interact with the organization.

Investing in skills for security pays big dividends for IT professionals and their organizations by giving confidence to individuals that they are staying up-to-date with emerging cyber security solutions and reassuring organizations that they are doing everything possible to keep sensitive data safe and secure.

It provides job security too! Investing in training and certification is a win-win for employers and individuals.

Enrolling in these courses through Harrisburg University gives particpants exclusive benefits, such as free online access to the (ISC)² CBK (Common Body of Knowledge) which is the accepted standard in the industry. The course pack also includes a practice exam and discount code for the certification exam that can be used during exam registration at any Pearson Vue testing site.



To provide world-class educational opportunities to the information security professionals in Central Pennsylvania, Harrisburg University is now a Global Academic Program Partner with (ISC2), the largest not-for-profit membership body of certified information and software security professionals worldwide.
