Career Opportunities in Cyber Security

The global pivot to a more digital society has created an unprecedented demand in the workforce for skilled cyber security professionals. According to a report from CyberSeek, over 15,000 jobs in cyber security go unfilled each year, and with the majority of U.S. government specialists in network security preparing for retirement with the next decade, Norwich University has built a program to address this considerable talent gap. Whether you’re looking to further your career or embark on a new professional path entirely, Norwich’s Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security online program can help you make the most of your opportunity through emphasis on education in computer forensics, compliance, and knowledge and vulnerability management.

Career Outcomes

Norwich’s online cyber security degree program speaks to the critical needs of employers in government, the military, and the private sector.
