The Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity gives graduates the knowledge and skills needed to enter the dynamic field of Cybersecurity.  Students learn how to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data, networks and computer systems.  Anderson students also learn the ethical considerations that impact the Cybersecurity profession.  To do this, students gain a balanced Cybersecurity education that includes both the technical and risk management aspects of the field.

In all Cybersecurity classes, faculty integrate hands-on learning exercises to ensure students gain the necessary skills with tools that are used in the field.
