Why A Cybersecurity 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 professionals is at an all-time high throughout the public and private sectors.
