All Cyber Security

Along with all the gifts the rise of the internet has brought society have come more than a few new risks. Today, an interruption of service or theft of confidential data can have major economic repercussions. There are more opportunities for financial fraud than ever before, and even militaries have enthusiastically embraced the concept of cyberwarfare.​Cybersecurity experts hold the line against chaos, protecting the digital assets of companies, individuals, and governments alike. While most computer science majors can be expected to have a working knowledge of information security, this complex, fast-changing field requires specialists.​If you’re good with computers, a hard worker, and want to make a difference in the world, getting a bachelor’s or master’s degree in cybersecurity may be for you. You will need to develop a profound level of knowledge on various subjects, such as coding, operating systems, networks, cryptography, and penetration testing (“white hat” hacking meant to expose, not exploit, system vulnerabilities).​It is also possible to specialize further, perhaps in digital forensics, law, or wireless networks. As new threats and technologies are constantly being released, continuous learning is an integral part of this career. Keeping up with industry news, and potentially reacting quickly to new hazards, are essential.
