About

‘Cybersecurity Ventures’ projected that the cost of cyber-threats will rise to $6 trillion annually by 2021. It isn’t just the number of cyber security attacks that is increasing but the degree of these attacks is also on rise. According a PwC report, these attacks are “becoming progressively destructive and target a broadening array of information and attack vectors.”Increase in the prevalence of cybercrime attacks on business organizations, government infrastructures and individuals, has emphasized the importance of Cyber Security. In fact Cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly central facet of national security strategy. Both private and public sectors are relying on cyber security professionals to keep personal and professional information safe.A recent CSIS survey of IT decision makers across eight countries found that 82 percent of employers report a shortage of cyber security skills and 71 percent believe this talent gap causes direct and measurable damage to their organizations. Also Global Information Security Workforce Study reveals that the global cybersecurity workforce shortage would reach around 1.8 million unfilled positions. Specialization in Cyber Security will equip students with right set of skills to combat ever increasing cyber-crimes. Further, this specialization aims to enhance the value of graduate degree in terms of career advancement, higher income and increased job security.
