A Bachelor in Cyber Security program teaches students to identify computer system vulnerabilities, recognize digital exploitation and prevent or repair damage. Graduates are prepared to avert cyber attacks and implement security measures in a wide range of settings that involve computer systems and sensitive data.

What is a Bachelor in Cyber Security?  This undergraduate degree prepares students to prevent, detect and repair computer security exploits. Hackers perform cyber attacks to access or manipulate the sensitive information stored in an organization’s databases. Program participants build a strong knowledge base of network security, cryptography, applications security, e-Commerce and web security, database management and secure hardware systems design. These tools allow students to create protected computing systems for corporations, hospitals, government offices and military bases. Graduates have the skills to find system vulnerabilities while building solutions to prevent malicious attacks and the forensic knowledge to show where attacks have occurred and identify their origins.

Students benefit from exposure to additional specialized security subjects in information systems and hardware besides the core computer science and system administration courses. Participants find this advanced skill set to be beneficial for finding career opportunities in secure networking, e-Commerce, sensitive government or military programs and many other prestigious technology positions.

This bachelor degree program usually lasts three or four years. However, the time and tuition rates vary depending on individual program policies. Individuals interested in the cyber security degree can research each institution to learn more about program duration and tuition costs.

Program graduates have a wide range of career opportunities. Positions that use the specialized knowledge gained from cyber security programs include network security engineers, system analysts, system security consultants, database security administrators and software architects. Specialized cryptographer and digital rights professional positions are also available to graduates. These positions can be found in the public and private sectors, existing in corporate settings and national, state and local agencies.

Built-it and networked digital logic surround our everyday life more and more. On the one hand, it makes our life much easier, but on the other hand, it makes it also more vulnerable, because digital solutions aren´t sufficiently protected. In the worse case, by hacking into vulnerable systems, it's already realistic to explode the boilers in the houses, to cause long-time telephone and power outage, to stop, damage or even crash cars and trains, etc. -
