Master of Science in Cybersecurity
Our physical world is increasingly supported by a cyberspace infrastructure. This infrastructure enables new business models, enhances communications, makes our personal lives more convenient, and contributes to our national defense. The flip side of this increased reliance, however, is that we are vulnerable to threats to our cyberspace infrastructure. Network outages, data compromised by hackers, propagating viruses, and other incidents affect our lives in ways that range from inconvenient to life-threatening. The Master of Science in Cybersecurity provides practitioners with the framework and knowledge to protect an organization’s cyber assets. The program focuses on prevention, detection, countering, and recovery from cyber incidents. Students learn about technical tools and organizational practices such as training, access control, evidence collection, and disaster recovery and business continuity planning.
The Master of Science in Cybersecurity is designed for midcareer professionals who wish to help meet the challenges posed by increasing cyber-threats. Using a multidisciplinary approach, the program is designed to provide students with a broad analytical framework for evaluating and solving cybersecurity problems.
