Cybercrime Investigation & Threat Intelligence Technology (CITIT)

Cybercrime Investigation & Threat Intelligence Technology Program at OCMT

Defending Against Cyber Threats: CITIT's Specialized Program

As a student at CITIT, you'll be part of a dedicated team exploring case studies and applying technology to address Cybercrime challenges, covering areas such as Cyber fraud audit techniques, Identity and Access Management, Enterprise Security Architecture, and Intelligence gathering. The program is designed to build expertise from the ground up, providing students with relevant and in-demand Cyber skills to combat evolving threats in the digital landscape.

Cybercrime has been an integral part of the advancement in technology since the discovery and invention of the internet. The pace at which digitization has outdated the traditional processes has also accelerated the fierceness of cyberattacks and crimes across sectors and industries. The world has since witnessed the flurry of cyberattacks that threaten the fabric of global firms in manners we have never seen before. While the financial impact has endured, and the pain felt across the board, the reputation damages continue to erode the credibility of many firms and displace or dislocate the competition positioning of firms.

This program is geared towards market-centered skills in different areas of Cybercrime investigation, threats gathering techniques, and application of relevant technology. As a student of CITIT, you will be part of a highly dedicated and studious team to unravel case studies and apply technology in various Cybercrime, and investigations. From Cyber fraud audit techniques, Identity and Access Management, Enterprise Security Architecture, Computer Crime, Intelligence gathering, and investigations, this program will build you from ground zero with relevant and in-demand Cyber skills.

Additional Information

Target students (Domestic and International Students)

While we are flexible in our approach to selecting candidates for the CITIT, our experience has shown that candidates with a background in IT, Engineering, Computer Science, Social Science, Management, or Industry credentials would often have a good shot at being considered.

If your credential is in a non-IT related discipline, you can enroll in alternative programs that complement your academic and professional experiences such as Enterprise Resource Planning Systems, Accounting and Business Finance, or Brand Promotion and Media Technology.
