Our physical world is increasingly supported by a cyberspace infrastructure. This infrastructure enables new business models, enhances communications, makes our personal lives more convenient, and contributes to our national defense. The flip side of this increased reliance, however, is that we are vulnerable to threats to our cyberspace infrastructure. Network outages, data compromised by hackers, propagating viruses, and other incidents affect our lives in ways that range from inconvenient to life-threatening. The cybersecurity policy program examines strategies for societal responses to cybersecurity threats at enterprise, national and global levels. The roles of government, interorganizational alliances, and international cooperatives are explored, as well as legal concepts such as privacy, intellectual property, and civil liberties.
The Master of Science in Cybersecurity Policy is designed for midcareer professionals who wish to help meet the challenges posed by increasing cyber-threats. Using a multidisciplinary approach, the program is designed to provide students with a broad analytical framework for evaluating and solving cybersecurity problems.
