What is cybersecurity?
The technology and processes designed to protect all digital devices from attack, damage or unauthorized access. It is the fastest growing area in the Information Technology (IT) sector.

Why learn about it?
Under increased hacking threats and new homeland security policies, there is a growing national demand for cybersecurity professionals. It is estimated there will be a million and a half unfilled U.S. positions in cyber security within the next five years.

How does it work?
Cybersecurity professionals plan, coordinate, and maintain an organization’s security posture.  They protect people, technology, and information from damage, theft, and improper disclosure.

Who can use cybersecurity? 
Business owners need to understand the threats to their assets, and what defenses are available. 

IT workers must defend mobile devices, servers, workstations, and cloud resources. 

Students can prepare for careers as penetration testers, security officers, forensic analysts, or security auditors.
