The Cyber Security Industry Wants You

Ask anyone you know if they’re worried about having their identity stolen, their email hacked or their computer infected with a virus—and the answer will almost certainly be yes. Cyber attacks are growing faster than any other crimes in the world,[1] with no end in sight. The cyber security industry is in dire need of talented people to fend off the bad guys.

In 2017, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics said information security jobs would increase 37% by 2022, triple the average growth rate of other occupations. A recent tally showed there are more than 500,000 openings in North America,[2] many requiring advanced degrees. The pay is attractive, too, with the median annual salary for information security analysts coming in at $98,350.[3] While we all wish cyber crime would go away, you can’t deny it’s an opportunity for people looking for a challenging career with seemingly unlimited potential.

Tiffin University’s new Master of Science in Cyber Security program is a great way to open the door to this fast-growing profession. Unlike degree programs that concentrate almost exclusively on the technical aspects of the problem, TU’s approach is to help you understand the legal and policy sides of cyber security while you hone your technical skills. You’ll not only know what happens technically during a cyber incident, you’ll be able to explain to others why it happened and what to do about it. Industry experts helped us create the TU cyber security program, ensuring you gain practical, real-world knowledge and skills that will prepare you for a variety of cyber security positions.

Tiffin University’s Master of Science in Cyber Security classes will start in January 2020.
