EAST GREENWICH –The New England Institute of Technology is adding cyber-security technology to its information technology program, according to Thomas F. Wylie, senior vice president and provost of NEIT.
The school’s bachelor of science program in information technology will now include three areas of study: software-engineering technology, network-engineering technology and the newest offering in cyber security.
The curriculum includes such topics as computer systems, mobile and network forensics, Windows and Linux security, incident response, the design of secure networks, evolving threats and the proper use of security tools.
