Protect the World from Cybercrime
In a world where many components of our lives are entirely online, cybersecurity is a critical function in nearly every industry. As the global digital footprint continues expanding, so does the dark underweb of cybercrime. In the past year, cyberattacks and data breaches increased by a whopping 15.1%.
As cybercrime increases, so does the need for more cybersecurity and information security professionals. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that there are currently 3.5 million cybersecurity positions worldwide, a 350% growth from the 1 million positions predicted back in 2014 .
In Spring Arbor University’s Cybersecurity program, our students become equipped with the knowledge and certifications needed to be critical thinkers and leaders in the cybersecurity industry. Students will take courses in computer systems security, Linux foundations for cybersecurity, security and management controls, data comm and networking, and cyber threats, and will complete the program with five industry certifications: PC Pro, Security Pro, Network Pro, Linux Pro, and Ethical Hacking.
