Minor in Cybersecurity
Available January 2017
The Cybersecurity Minor program (15 credits, 5 courses) is open to all majors and explores the many approaches and meanings of this field that is fast becoming central to our nation’s security. As we see every day in the press, cyber security can be used for offensive or defensive purposes. The approaches to defending critical infrastructures such as the energy grid, financial systems, the healthcare system, or agriculture, etc, can be either proactive (e.g., installing a firewall to detect and prevent attacks) or reactive (e.g., responding to an event). This program will introduce students to cyber security operations (e.g., day-to-day duties, actions, and responsibilities), governance (e.g., law, policy, and analysis), and education and training.
