We are developing future leaders who will combat the latest cyber threats, deploy and secure wireless networks, influence policies from privacy to national security, assess and understand risk, and lead organizational change.
Computers are becoming embedded in all emerging technologies and systems, and therefore threat landscapes are constantly evolving and exponentially increasing. The need for cybersecurity and security-minded professionals is likewise expanding, and there is a drastic shortage of qualified experts, particularly in leadership roles.
