Information Systems & Technology Cyber Security, BS

Across the nation, employers are struggling to find qualified workers to fill the major gaps in the cybersecurity workforce. In California alone, there are more than 72,000 job openings, with almost 1,600 job openings in San Bernardino County (figures from CyberSeek’s Cybersecurity Supply And Demand Heat Map, https://www.cyberseek.org/heatmap.html

Shows the estimated number of workers employed in cybersecurity-related jobs from June 2019 through May 2020. This includes workers in primary cybersecurity jobs – such as cybersecurity analysts – as well as workers in roles requiring cybersecurity-related skills and certifications to capture the full potential cybersecurity workforce.

www.cyberseek.org

The national figures are even more bleak, with more than 500,000 unfilled cybersecurity positions. This number is significantly increasing.

The Department of Information and Decision Sciences houses the highly regarded, nationally recognized cybersecurity program. Our program is designated as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. Our innovative programs and their applied learning approach appeals to students who are both technical and policy oriented.  Highly regarded for innovation in curriculum, CSUSB students are often sought after by major employers and government.
