Education and Training in Cybersecurity Intelligence and Forensics
Our dependence on computer networks and online data requires the latest protective measures from cyber crimes. The U.S. Government has appointed a White House Cybersecurity Coordinator specifically to address these issues, which affect national security in the form of electronic terrorism and espionage. Corporations and other private sector agencies and organizations, increasingly aware of cyber threats, are adding departments and employees to help anticipate and fight cyber crime, which can cost them more than $6 million per day, according to a recent report commissioned by security firm McAfee.*
