Program description

The 21st century has given impetus to the emergence of new professions. The modern world is characterized by the rapid growth of information flow, which marked hitherto unknown risks associated with the complete absence of information control.

The educational program “Linguistic Support of Corporate Information Systems Security” is absolutely unique for the Russian market, as it allows specialists to obtain all the necessary competencies needed to work in the field of information security – both in the digital economy and in the real economy sector, strategic consulting and public policy.

It is an established standard to have an information security specialist and the information policy department at a large organization. Any organization will not release or forward a document to the public unless all the information security rules are observed. Financial University is launching a special program to train specialists who have expertise in this area.

The demand for such specialists is extremely high on the market due to the current situation in the world, particularly taking into account the attitude of western countries to Russia and the need to ensure the highest level of security and autonomy of leading Russian organizations and enterprises.

Departments responsible for IT security policy began to appear at modern enterprises relatively recently, and today almost all documents or text messages sent from the company servers are checked by the Department of Information Security. It is the Department of Information Security that ensures stability and sustainability of an organization in the context of high-tech and highly developed business intelligence and a wide range of interstate sanctions aimed at weakening market competitors.
