A new certificate program in Cybersecurity & Privacy Law offers students the opportunity to enroll in a unique half-year to full-year, skills-oriented cyber law track. The courses are designed to develop a student's: legal, policy, and communication skills; ability to assess a business or organization's cybersecurity and privacy program; ability to assess industry best practices along with state, federal and international cybersecurity and privacy rules; and ability to make decisions and advise senior decision-makers on how to orient a business or organization to rapidly adapt to a constantly changing risk, compliance, legal and policy environment.
The program consists of three courses for a total of nine credit hours and is offered in a fully-online, distance-learning format, allowing students to complete courses at times that best fit their schedules. Each course takes 14 weeks to complete and may be taken concurrently, so that all three courses can be completed in one academic semester.
All nine credits earned in the online graduate certificate program can be applied towards the
Master of Science in Legal Studies in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Law degree.
All students are required to take Cybersecurity Law & Policy Seminar: Private Entities and may choose the remaining two courses from the list below.
Online courses at Albany Law School are generally asynchronous: learning takes place online where students interact with one another through discussions and assignments that are facilitated by a qualified law professor. An asynchronous learning environment like this allows students to access the course content on their own schedule, designed for those who are employed or who have other obligations.
