Careers in Cybersecurity

The Cybersecurity Center is committed to producing the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. Because of our strides in this effort, visitors from other universities, community colleges, government agencies, and industry continue to come to CSUSB to learn how we produce some of the best talents in the Nation.
