As new technological innovations continue to proliferate in our society, so do the opportunities for technology exploitation. Once a mere nuisance, hackers now threaten private citizens, businesses, and government agencies.
Government and law enforcement agencies need skilled professionals who can join the fight against cyber crime, cyber terrorism, identity theft, and the exploitation of minors. Companies and other private sector organizations need skilled professionals with both business acumen and technology skills for recognizing and mitigating vulnerabilities.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov) predicts there will be over 65,000 new jobs for "Information Security Analysts, Web Developers, and Network Architects" by 2020.
The Cyber Forensics and Information Security program combines the disciplines of technology, business, organizational behaviour, and law. Students learn techniques used to detect, respond to, and prevent network intrusions. They also master broader concepts such as the responsible use of resources, the appropriate management of risks, and the alignment of information technology with the organization.
