Career Significance

Cybersecurity is becoming one of the most important things to deal with as a society. As a society integrated into the internet one way or another, people depend on these systems to work properly. Everyone's data is out there and readily available, and it's up to the cybersecurity professional to protect it.

The world needs authorized cybersecurity professionals on the white hat or ethical side of hacking who are acting just the same as the black hat or malicious hacker. The black hat hackers will sell your information when they find it. This program will instruct you on ways to stay ahead of the black hat hackers and beat them at their own game, where you can do what they do but do it even better.

Career Outlook

The dramatic rise in cyberattacks by independent hackers and even government-supported entities highlights the need for professionals with the knowledge and learning to respond. A distinctive element of Stetson's program is its sponsorship of an annual live, real-world hack that allows students to put their ideas and theories into practice.
