Have you considered a career in cyber security? Professionals in this field work to:
- defeat malicious attackers,
- improve a company’s security and defenses,
- become an ethical hacker, and
- prevent identity theft.
A Global Information Security Workforce Study found that the cyber security workforce gap is on pace to hit 1.8 million by 2022 (ISC, 2017). It is critical that today’s students graduate ready to enter the workforce and fill the vast number of available cyber security positions.
