The MISonline Enterprise Security Certificate addresses top IT concerns with courses designed specifically for information security professionals both within industry and government. Supported by our world-class faculty, students will gain the critical knowledge that is needed to secure information and information systems in the areas of confidentiality, integrity and availability.

Our programs—ranked in the top 5 since 1989—reflect the vigorous dynamics of technology today. We have brought in more than $200 million in external funding for research—more than any other MIS program in the world. Our research generates real-world solutions for significant problems and influences our cutting-edge curriculum. Our distinguished faculty win research and teaching awards. Our alumni hold leadership positions in diverse business environments, from Fortune 500 technology and consulting enterprises to emerging new ventures.
