Introduction

Be well-equipped with the foundational knowledge and technical training needed to excel in the cybersecurity field. Rider cybersecurity majors may choose to concentrate in the Technical Track or the Policy Track. Students develop the ability to collaborate and apply their knowledge to real-world problems.

Prepare for a career designing, implementing and assessing security measures to protect computer networks from cyber attacks. Gain practical experience through a combination of hands-on and experiential learning, classroom lectures, and professional internships that offer a powerful competitive edge as you launch your career.


Just as computing technology has become an integral part of many aspects of our lives, the need to secure the operation of that technology has become critical. The importance of secure computational operations has had significant impacts in social, commercial, financial, industrial, and political realms, and will continue to grow as the right to privacy is tested.

In NJ and the surrounding Philadelphia and New York metro areas, the demand is even greater, with over 27,000 unfilled cybersecurity positions. On a national level, cybersecurity has been recognized as a critical component of Homeland Security, and the Senate Appropriations Committee funded cybersecurity efforts above the President’s request for FY 2019. Students pursuing a B.S. in Cybersecurity will bring a powerful combination of a traditional liberal arts education with foundational knowledge and technical training needed to excel in the cybersecurity field. A Minor in Cybersecurity is also available.
