This leading edge training anticipates the needs of companies and employers who are actively seeking experts to assist them in defending themselves against cybercriminals.

You may complete three certificate programs at Polytechnique Montréal. There is also the possibility to complete one of your three certificate programs elsewhere, on one of the following campuses.
