Cybersecurity at The College of Saint Rose


Just about everywhere you look you
hear about breaches, data loss, money loss, potential threats to national security. It’s important that governments, schools,
and businesses have ways of countering any incidents that might steal their data. What’s probably not well known out there
is that you can enter Cybersecurity from virtually any other discipline, any other
area of expertise. You don’t just hand your Cybersecurity
program to your IT Director and say “have fun with this”. It actually
funnels down from the CEO to the COO to the CSO and sometimes the CFO. So our program has not only an
interdisciplinary approach but a very deep set of courses in the technical. By 2021 there’s going to be 3.5
million vacant jobs in Cybersecurity. That just means that the talent
can’t keep up with the demand but also you tend to work with other
kinds of people. You work in teams. So maybe if you prefer interacting with
non tech people as much as with tech people this maybe a good field. Plus the money’s nice.
