Why choose a Cybersecurity degree?

Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing fields and a job growth that has tripled in the recent years. As we become a more and more digitally reliant society, our digital identities and online privacy become more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Protecting our digital assets, from personally identifiable information to sensitive business data, is more urgent than ever before. There is a dire need for cybersecurity professionals who are armed with the knowledge and skills necessary to defend our cyber systems as well as critical infrastructure.

The Cybersecurity program in the School of Business at Saint Leo University exposes students to the fundamentals needed for entry-level positions involving cybersecurity. The program introduces students to a variety of topics, such as principles of cyber security, penetration testing and ethical hacking, various computer and network protection controls, and managing the implementation and maintenance of security devices, systems, procedures and countermeasures. Furthermore; students will experience and learn security tools and technologies that are used by cybersecurity professionals in their daily work activities. This is done through a virtual lab environment where students have the unique opportunity to fully immerse themselves in a mock IT infrastructure and real world software tools with realistic security scenarios. Those scenarios are similar to what students will encounter in their future cybersecurity career.
