   Overview   

 

In the online Associate of Applied Science in Cybersecurity program, you’ll learn all the skills you need to begin or excel in a career in computer network administration to assist with preventing cyberattacks.

 

In an increasingly digital world, data is currency. Organizations rely on cybersecurity professionals to protect systems, networks and programs from cyberattacks aimed at accessing, changing or destroying sensitive information. These cyberattacks often attempt to extort money from the breached organization which is why implementing a proactive approach to preventing attacks is instrumental.

With an increasing number of users and devices in the digital space along with an increase in sensitive data, the importance of cybersecurity continues to grow. And the sophistication of cyberattacks techniques continues to compound the problem even further.
