CyberSecurity Administration

CyberSecurity is the protection of computers, networks, programs and data from an attack or unauthorized access. 

  • With more data being stored, managed, and handled online than ever before, companies, governments, and individuals are increasingly vulnerable to hackers and cyber-related threats.

    Cybercrime will more than triple the number of job openings over the next five years according to  Cybersecurity ventures.

    The CyberSecurity major at Saint Francis educates students in the fundamental concepts of Information Security with a particular emphasis on cybersecurity. A bachelor’s degree in cybersecurity prepares students to prevent, detect and battle digital crime in classes that blend technology with critical thinking as well as forensics and investigative techniques. 

  • In teaching students to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information and information systems that support modern organizations and drive our society, students receive a comprehensive education that focuses on both the fundamentals of information systems as well as advanced topics in areas such as cybersecurity, homeland security, risk management, security governance, digital forensics, criminal investigation, business continuity planning, security architecture, physical security and critical infrastructure protection.  

    The program prepares students for career opportunities such as with:

    • information technology departments
    • banks and other financial institutions
    • law enforcement
    • private corporate security firms
    • national security agencies and other government agencies
    • insurance companies
    • hospitals and other health care facilities and organizations
