The article, written during National Cybersecurity Month, had a few major takeaways, one of them being that “in today’s cybersecurity degree programs, it’s not just about graduating engineers.” The article underscores the plentiful opportunities for students interested in careers in the cyber arena, the more technical coders and hackers, as well as those who make policy, legal and business decisions using an understanding of cybersecurity.
