GET YOUR CAREER STARTED IN THE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT WORLD OF CYBER SECURITY
The Master of Science in Cyber Security program’s purpose is to equip graduates with a solid foundation in the technology and practice of cyber security, allowing them to be well prepared for positions in high-demand areas of cyber security after graduation. Practical expertise in cyber threat and vulnerability prevention and detection tactics, as well as in responding to and recovering from cyber attacks such as hacking, trojan horses, malware, and ransomware is gained by participation in this course. The psychology of hacking as well as the human components in cyber security are discussed, as well as the fundamentals of cybercrime investigation and digital forensics, in this course.
