Drury's Cybersecurity Expert in the News

Employers seek leaders who understand how to protect, detect, defend and respond to attacks on information security. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (2014) projected employment of Information Security Analysts to grow by 37 percent through 2020.

Dr. Shannon McMurtrey "This Certificate will give graduate students, who may not think of themselves as being particularly technical, the ability to learn the important concepts and principals within the field of Cybersecurity, that will enable them to be leaders within their organizations in this important area.  Companies are recognizing a severe lack of skilled professionals in the area of Cybersecurity.  It is very exciting that we are able to begin working to address this need through this certificate program."
