Why A Cybersecurity/Data Science Degree Is Right for You

It’s been estimated that cybercrime could cost the world $10.5 trillion by 2025 and have the power to economically cripple – and potentially hold for ransom – an organization, a state, or even a country.1 How? Cyber terrorists typically target data, the information business leaders use to make decisions based on facts, statistics, and trends. Add to that the threat of the dark web – potentially 5,000X larger than the surface web – and it’s immediately clear why the demand for highly trained cybersecurity and data science professionals is at an all-time high throughout the public and private sectors.

Utica University’s suite of cybersecurity and data science degrees online enables you to balance your personal and professional responsibilities while gaining the analysis skills and valuable insights to prevent and protect companies from cyber attacks and threats.
