CSO’s Why You Should Study Security in College is as relevant for undergraduate as executive students. The author wrote this piece as a response to an earlier article, “Why You Shouldn’t Study Security in College,” to emphasize the need for a workforce prepared for the complexity and interdisciplinary nature of cybersecurity.
Part of a series of CSO online slideshows, the author bases this presentation on input from EMCS Program Director Alan Usas who identifies the following demands – and corresponding training needs – cybersecurity professionals face:
• Build resilient IT systems that limit cyber risk
• Factor in that troublesome human element
• Leverage law, policy and governance structures
• Secure privacy and data protection globally
• Get results by influencing others with effective communication
• Anticipate the future of technology and its security challenges
