M.S. in Cybersecurity Management and Policy
The Master of Science in Cybersecurity Management & Policy is a 30-credit online degree tailored to IT and non-IT professionals who want to transition into a leadership role. Graduates will emerge from the program with an understanding of cybersecurity and its ramifications across the organization, along with improved critical thinking, leadership and management skills.
Curriculum is constantly updated to reflect a rapidly changing industry. You can expect to study: risk assessment, risk management and risk mediation; threat vectors and mitigation processes; design and management of secure information systems; emerging tools and resources for industry and platform security; and current events in cybersecurity and data breaches. You will also have the opportunity to explore key challenges and workplace-specific issues during a two-part Capstone project.
Our goal is for you to exit from the Cybersecurity Management & Policy degree program with the ability to (1) recognize the relationship between cybersecurity and your organization’s strategic goals, (2) realize the long-term impact of a security breach on successful completion of your mission and (3) be ready for a leadership role in the private or public sector.
