Immaculata’s 18-credit minor in cybersecurity will help you diversify your skills to enter a fast-growing field. Any organization that is connected to the internet could be targeted by cybercriminals. The demand for cybersecurity professionals currently outpaces the supply, and in-depth technical expertise is not a requirement for working in this field. The field needs professionals with diverse skills who can assess risks, train employees to take proper security measures, and develop strategies to address ongoing threats.
If you are majoring in another discipline, minoring in cybersecurity will help you protect your organization from cyber intrusions. For example, a cybersecurity minor can help criminology majors prepare for investigating criminal activity online, and the minor can help business majors prepare to work with their network security teams. Having an understanding of cybersecurity will benefit you in any field
that uses computer networks.
This program, offered fully online, or with the option to take some face-to-face courses, will give you a foundation in computer programming, web design basics, information security, network defense, intrusion detection, high-tech crime, cyberwar and international affairs.
