CityU offering new Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance
Organizations today – from healthcare to government to business – rely on the ability to connect, share and store information online and across systems. While this prevalence of interconnectivity and information sharing may be beneficial, it can also lead to risks. For organizations to effectively manage threats and safeguard their information, they have an increasing need for qualified cybersecurity professionals.
Educating new cybersecurity professionals
To help meet this growing demand, City University of Seattle created and is now offering a Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity and Information Assurance. The program was developed with guidance from data security leaders and hiring managers in the public and private sectors.
“We utilize technology and an understanding of cyber operations to investigate and manage cyber risks to individuals, corporations and government entities,” said Dr. Vincenzo Sainato, the program director.
In this bachelor’s program, students learn to assess and investigate the misuse of data and information through the study of technology, investigative processes and cyber-related offenses. This prepares graduates to address risks and enter the field as analysts or investigators on data security and cybercrime.
To provide flexibility and meet the needs of busy students and working adults, this program is offered online with the option to take select courses onsite.
