WORCESTER, MA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Clark University’s College of Professional and Continuing Education (COPACE) today announced the launch of graduate programs in cyber security. The Cyber Security Graduate Programs are designed to address a growing knowledge and talent gap related to global cyber security challenges.
Cyber threats are rapidly becoming the greatest concerns for the United States government, as well as for governments and businesses all over the world. Unfortunately, cyber security is falling behind the threats that are faced on the digital frontier. The Cyber Security Graduate Programs will emphasize various aspects of cyber security, providing specialized training and education required to assist career professionals in pursuing post graduate certifications.
“This program has been designed to initiate and support social change through education that builds valuable regional assets to benefit our communities with expanding national and international footprints,” said Eben Berry, the lead for the Cyber Security Graduate Programs, as well as the President of Cyber Inspectors™ LLC.
Clark’s Cyber Security Graduate Programs offer timely options for students, career professionals, and organizations.
The programs are built around curricula that present the latest approaches in countering cyber threats. Each class offers insight into the realities of the threats faced by information security professionals and others. The programs are ideal for students who want to find work in the growing field of cyber security, as well as for organizations that wish to send professionals and executives for additional training and mentoring in cyber security matters.
All of the programs will feature instructors who have real experience in the world of cyber security. “What sets our cyber security programs apart is that all of our instructors are practitioners working in the security profession. They understand the business value of cyber security,” said Dennis Wadsworth, the director of Clark’s MSIT program.
With growing threats to information privacy and security costing business billions of dollars each year, and with governments being concerned about cyber terrorism, programs like Clark’s Cyber Security Graduate Programs are needed to address the organizational cyber security challenges and close the growing talent gap in the field of cyber security.
