Cybersecurity Concentration | Undergraduate Degree Program

Cybersecurity Concentration

As business models become more data-driven, the way in which organizations handle and defend data, as well as the computing infrastructures, are more important than ever. The insights provided through data, and the protection of that data, are the most powerful tools in enabling businesses to perform well without data or funds lost – directly or indirectly – through cybercrime.

Competency in cyber management is now a staple in every organization due to the increased dependence on data, the advancement of cyber-attacks, and the sophistication of security processes needed to defend those valuable data resources.

Cybersecurity is offered at the following locations.

  • Ottawa, KS (Residential Campus)
