Students Train to Manage Cyber Threats Against Homeland Security

Global networks and e-commerce have transformed the way companies do business, a trend that is only projected to continue as systems, policies and threats become more sophisticated.

Published reports have estimated one million new cybersecurity jobs were created in the United States in 2016. Additionally, the number of information security professionals is projected to grow by more than 11 percent annually over the next five years.

Students in Embry-Riddle's Bachelor of Science in Cyber Intelligence and Security degree program at the Prescott Campus gain high-tech, hands-on, real-world experience to prepare for these advances. Graduates leave the program having worked with key agencies, trained in specialized labs and experimented in computer forensics, intrusion detection, digital security and viruses.

Established in 2014, Embry-Riddle's College of Security and Intelligence is the first school of its kind in the country. The college's Cyber Intelligence and Security degree program remains a rare course of study in the Southwest.

Embry-Riddle is a sponsor of the Air Force Association's CyberPatriot youth education program and a member of the National CyberWatch Center. The Prescott Campus is in candidacy for accreditation as a Center of Academic Excellence by the National Security Agency (NSA).
