We live in an ever increasing digital age full of cyber-attacks, cyber-espionage, and cyber-crimes that impact our nation’s security, economy, and ability to thrive in a networked-world. Financial systems, utility networks, defense databases, industry proprietary information, and intellectual property are constantly at risk of attack. The cybersecurity threat is very real and forever growing. Cybersecurity personnel are in high demand.
