Why Choose the Incident Response Certificate?

Responding to industry trends, Ferris State University's College of Business Graduate Programs has created graduate-level advanced studies certificates. These four course sequences can be used to obtain stand-alone certificates or as emphasis areas leading to masters degrees in either Information Systems Management or a Master of Business Administration based on the philosophy of performance metrics-based management.

The Incident Response Certificate is designed to prepare individuals to secure computers, networks, and systems against intrusions and unauthorized access, test and assess security measures, and forensically analyze the environment to determine events and situations that may have occurred in a digital environment.

Admission Requirements

A bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited university with an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.75 or better on a 4.0 scale.

Graduation Requirements

The Advanced Studies Certificate in Incident Response is awarded to individuals who have completed the 12 required credits with a minimum accumulative GPA of 3.0 or greater and no course less than 2.0.

No more than 50% of the credits in this certificate may be transferred from another institution, nor, will this certificate be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are specifically required in the student's major.
