Cybersecurity Minor


The minor in cybersecurity prepares graduates to be leaders in the protection of data assets. The curriculum focuses on the techniques, policies, operational procedures, and technologies that secure and defend the availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and nonrepudiation of information and information systems, in local as well as more broadly based domains. The curriculum allows students to explore security of a variety of computing environments: embedded, mobile, server, datacenter, cloud, distributed, and special purpose (e.g. HPC). The minor helps prepare students for careers that address security in application design, information systems, infrastructure, system management, and policy.
