Train to Become a Cyber Security Professional with a Degree from FORTIS

Cyber security specialists are the people who work to protect the data and systems connected to the internet. The threats and challenges they face are evolving every day. One way to categorize opportunities in cyber security and forensics is by the type of things the specialists protect and investigate. Some protect computer networks; some protect data bases; and some protect software, though many of these applications are often interconnected.

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that workers in computer-related fields, especially those in computer security should have favorable prospects nationally over the next decade. While many homeland cyber security jobs are with state, federal or local government there are still many opportunities in private companies and nonprofit organizations. Every company with a network is a possible victim of a cyber criminal act , which should create sustained entry-level opportunities over time.
