Cyber-risk Management: Available Beginning Fall 2018

Cybercrime costs the global economy more than $400 billion a year, according to estimates by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). The pressing need to combat the problem has led to tens of thousands of unfilled job openings in the U.S. alone. 

Drury’s new Bachelor of Business Administration in Cyber-Risk Management will help graduates stand apart in this high-demand field by giving them equal, in-depth exposure to both business principles and computer science know-how. It will be the only program in the region – and one of the few in the nation – to take such a deeply integrated approach to training cybersecurity professionals.

Cyber-risk Management Curriculum

Courses are designed to help students throughout their careers by giving them an understanding of cyber risk and the ability to help businesses choose appropriate strategies to respond to those risks. Cyber-Risk Management courses will address many technical areas including:

  • Network security
  • Software security
  • Web application security
  • Cryptography
  • End user security
  • Legal and regulatory compliance
