Cybersecurity

As technology continues to play a fundamental role in our day-to-day lives, it’s critical to protect the technology that we use. Cybersecurity concerns the technologies, methods, and practices employed to protect the virtual and cyber physical world – including computers, mobile devices, databases, networks and programs – from infiltration and attack by unauthorized individuals and organizations. Cybersecurity careers allow individuals to help public and private organizations protect their information and assets from a broad range of cyberattacks.

The Cybersecurity Community is designed to keep students informed about relevant industry news and connect them with related opportunities.
