Information Security Certifications

The SBS Institute is uniquely designed to serve the banking industry by providing cyber education to better prepare students and their financial institution for cybersecurity threats and regulations. These banking specific, role-based certifications allow students to master the concepts and technologies required to perform essential cybersecurity functions. The SBS Institute certifications include real-world cybersecurity issues and establish solutions that make cybersecurity responsibilities more efficient and effective.

The SBS Institute certification program is designed around three learning paths: Executive, Manager, and Technical. Each path contains a list of applicable job titles, making it clear which courses are for you based on your job. Each learning path also includes one core certification and a variety of specialized certifications. A core certification is not a pre-requisite of a specialized certification, but is rather a natural starting point within the learning path. For additional information, email Beth Parker or call (801) 214-7720.
