Cybersecurity, B.S.

Graduates of the cybersecurity bachelor’s program are employed as information security analysts whose responsibility it is to evaluate the vulnerability of an organization’s networks and systems, then develop solutions to address security risks. Security analyst positions are found in virtually every major organization whether it be business, industry or government. This position is becoming increasingly important because of the increase in cyberattacks.

Indiana Tech’s cybersecurity program is distinguished by providing a blend of the technical aspects of information security with a fundamental understanding of criminal investigation. This combination provides graduates with effective tools to not only protect an organization’s data, but to work with or be employed by law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

As the methods that criminals use become more and more sophisticated, Indiana Tech’s cybersecurity program ensures that our graduates will have the technical depth to keep ahead of them.
