·2 min read

The cybersecurity landscape is rapidly evolving, and demand couldn’t be greater for skilled professionals. St. Bonaventure’s online Master of Science in Cybersecurity arms students with tools to help organizations prevent, overcome and recover from cybersecurity attacks.

NEW YORK, USA , Jan. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Cybersecurity has become an urgent need for businesses of all sizes. Attackers have shifted their focus from complex high-effort breaches to more simple attacks that extract revenue in significantly less time. Cybercrime Magazine labels it as the "greatest threat to every company in the world."

A cybercrime tactic that is becoming more prevalent is ransomware. Last year's Colonial Pipeline attack embodied how things can go wrong very quickly. System disruptions forced the company to shut down its pipeline, causing major disruptions to gas delivery up and down the East Coast of the United States. People suffered as the lack of fuel supply caused prices to soar nationwide.

A global shortage of 3.5 million cybersecurity professionals is predicted for 2025 by Cybersecurity Ventures. St. Bonaventure's online Master of Science in Cybersecurity is training a new breed of cybersecurity experts that help businesses fill this demand and avoid such attacks, and if attacked, recover from them.

“Technology is always changing. It's changing so fast that when we develop courses, we make sure we go back and refresh the content every single semester. Soft skills are very important too. I, myself, had to learn this. Early on in my career, I had technical blinkers on. SBU places emphasis on your softer skills giving you the confidence to present your findings” Said SBU’s Associate Director of M.S. Cybersecurity Program Pouya Ghotbi.
