Program Highlights

Cybercrime is on the rise, whether it be the compromise of information systems, employees leaking sensitive data, global organized crime creating large-scale fraud, or nation-states and other actors disseminating disinformation in an effort to destabilize governments. Never before has the threat landscape been so diverse, sophisticated, and aggressive.

Cybersecurity is a management problem, as security controls must be implemented in every department or business unit in an organization. The security risks posed by people, and inherent in processes and technology must all be managed: with controls in policies and procedures as well as technological responses. Cybersecurity management requires leaders with strong technical skills, exceptional business communication, and expertise in risk management.

For this reason, the David Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah is uniquely positioned to teach both technical and leadership skills to students looking to enter this new and rapidly changing field. Our graduates will be positioned to obtain excellent employment positions and have longer-term career advancement opportunities.
