Cybersecurity, or information security as it is also called, refers to protecting computers, networks, programs, data or personal information from unauthorized access, theft, or destruction. Attacks on cyber networks and the data stored on computers are growing in number and in sophistication. Vigilance and countermeasures are required to safeguard sensitive personal, government, and business data, as well as to protect national security. Cybersecurity also combines elements of computer science with forensics. Professional careers in cybersecurity are evolving rapidly as new risks and threats to information and information networks emerge.
The Bellevue University online Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity degree program prepares skilled information technology specialists for jobs in information and network security in all types of industries.
