Cybersecurity, BS

Keiser University’s Bachelor of Science degree in Cybersecurity prepares students to become cybersecurity practitioners, attain professional certifications and help global private/public organizations manage cybersecurity risk. Cybersecurity practitioners are urgently needed to fill varied and challenging roles in protecting people, organizations, countries and cyberspace from risks and threats.

Organizational controls used to ensure data/information availability, integrity, authentication, confidentiality, and non-repudiation are examined.
  • The Digital Defense (DD) Concentration enables students to help protect organizations using proactive technical testing and evaluation software, investigative processes, and cyber risk management practices. Organizational cyber defense and countermeasure capabilities and controls used to detect, respond, and effectively recover from cyber risks are examined.
