Organizations must increasingly limit the risk to information and data. They must hire and train their employees to identify, mitigate and address the threats to their cyber infrastructure. Thus the need for cybersecurity professionals is growing. MassBay has responded to the growing regional and national need for well-trained cybersecurity professionals by creating certificate and A.S. degree programs in Cybersecurity. Our academic programs align with the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) framework of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and provide academic pathways to well-paid jobs and careers in related professions.
“Employment of information security analysts, web developers, and computer network architects is projected to grow 22 percent from 2010 to 2020.“ — Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook
