Yet keeping up with this ever-changing field is a challenge — a recent study by Tripwire found that 93 percent of security professionals are concerned about the cybersecurity skills gap, with 81 percent stating that in just over the past two years, the skills needed to be a security professional have changed.
Unlike more traditional programs that focus on just the technical aspect, Le Moyne College BA in Cybersecurity is interdisciplinary, drawing from computer science, political science, anthropology, criminology, and sociology. The program emphasizes skills that are the hallmark of a liberal arts education — such as critical thinking and communications — so that students graduate with the skills necessary to understand and work on concepts that touch on the social, political and technical elements of cybersecurity.
