These occupations are expected to add about 488,500 new jobs, from about 3.9 million jobs to about 4.4 million jobs from 2014 to 2024, in part due to a greater emphasis on cloud computing, the collection and storage of big data, more everyday items becoming connected to the Internet in what is commonly referred to as the "Internet of things," and the continued demand for mobile computing.

Cybersecurity

If you're looking to become a leader in the fight against cybercrime! Cyber threats continue to evolve. The nation's protection against them relies on a steady stream of qualified cybersecurity professionals entering the workforce.

It seems every week another business falls victim to a cyberattack with the use of sophisticated hacking techniques. As we become more and more reliant on technology to move and store sensitive information, there becomes an even greater need for cybersecurity professionals to protect this information.

Cybersecurity is generally defined as the body of technologies, processes, and practices designed to protect networks, computers, programs, and electronic data from attack, damage, or unauthorized access. In a computing context, information security includes both cybersecurity and physical security.

We are committed to helping educate the nation's students in cybersecurity to develop a more resilient and capable cybernation. Join us in the fight today!
