Career Spotlight: Cybersecurity

With massive information security breaches at major retailers beginning in late 2013 and growing since, the nation’s attention has suddenly focused on this area. Hackers are more focused and aggressive in their efforts to mine and sell valuable information – including our very identities – to the highest bidder. As information security breaches become both more common and more costly, the need for increased focus on cyber security is ever more apparent.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s Occupational Outlook Handbook, the job growth prospects for positions in information security is expected to grow 37 percent, or much faster than average, over the next decade. In addition to strong growth, the median salary in the field is more than $85,000. Experts expect the field to grow as more and more businesses need trained professionals capable of protecting a company’s valuable, sensitive information from hackers. While the cyber security field is growing, it is also evolving, as hackers develop new and innovative ways to mine for sensitive data. As a result, information security specialists must constantly adapt to stay one step ahead of potential attackers online. Experts in this field are expects to monitor for possible breaches in security, implement thoughtful plans to prevent such breaches, conduct testing to ensure the systems in place are strong, and consistently improve on their depth and breadth of knowledge in the field in order to stay ahead of cybercriminals.

Given the increased need for cyber security professionals and the prospect of continued professional evolution and growth within the field itself, there’s no better time than now to pursue a Master of Science or Graduate Certificate in Information Assurance through Regis University. With classes in risk management, advanced forensics, auditing and much more, our programs equip you to protect the confidentiality, security, integrity and availability of data and delivery systems from malice or accidental infringement, whether the data is in storage, processing or transit.
