Cyber Security Technical Centre of Excellence
To establish a technical training and knowledge centre of excellence (COE) in cyber security. This vision includes:
>> Creating Western Canada’s leading technical training space for cyber security/managed security professionals.
>> Launching a multi-year technology acquisition strategy that leverages more than $4 million in incremental investments to enhance our lab, server, router, switch, and display technologies.
>> Developing the spaces and credential pathways industry needs for continuous growth, learning, training, and development.
>> Providing 24/7, globally accessible training that includes interception and resolution of complex cyber threats within a virtualized environment, replicating real-world scenarios.
>> Creating a learning environment that converges academic deliveries, utilizing emerging technologies and software solutions, in real-world applications with key industry stakeholders.
>> Hiring a director for the COE who supports all teaching, learning, and research objectives, and develops increased collaboration opportunities with multiple industry partners.
>> Leveraging MITT’s status as a Pearson VUE test centre to create a dedicated space in Western Canada for IT-related certification.
>> Pursuing collaborative program growth and innovation building on existing programs such as Cyber Defence and Cloud Administration to include support of ethical hacking/penetration testing, traffic monitoring, digital forensics, network programmability, Internet of Things, and cloud security.
Our vision for the COE builds on our already strong programming which includes:
Network Computer Technology Certificate
Cyber Defence and Cloud Administration Diploma
Network Security Diploma
Software Developer Diploma
and allows MITT to deepen relationships with industry partners.
A Check Point Secure Academy™
Internal Server Error
