Our Objectives


The need for greater security and privacy will require organizations to demonstrate competence and guarantee information security. To this end, compliance with information security standards is essential to achieving this goal.


The solution is to use the best software development practices to enable a true digital transformation, which will be achieved by integrating systems, business processes, identity and access management in an information security context.


In order to support the digital transformation that is taking place, it is necessary to have professionals qualified to apply best practices and use devops/secops, software engineering and artificial intelligence to create secure architectural solutions and the respective integration of these solutions.


This specialization aims to provide knowledge that covers all aspects related to information security.
