Digital medical records require operating systems that will protect confidential patient information. This concentration will help students understand the technology infrastructure that underlies information systems, gain access to key Internet services and applications, and learn to prevent information security network attacks. In this concentration, students will explore basic approaches to computer forensics, analyze information systems for evidence of illegal or inappropriate activities, and consider the legal, ethical, and policy implications of forensic techniques. This concentration will broaden the skills needed for a position as a hospital network and systems information security department administrator, network and systems administrator, data communication analyst, or medical records and health information technician.
