About Information Security

The information security field is exploding. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 33% job growth in information security through 2030, which is a much faster growth that average.

And it’s no wonder the field is growing. New online attacks are discovered daily, and protecting sensitive and mission critical data and network infrastructure from threats is vital to businesses large and small. See the kinds of careers available for information security professionals to learn more.

Our focused curriculum is complemented by small class sizes (the average is 12-15) and adjunct professors who are themselves working professionals in the information security field. The result is opportunities to learn cutting-edge theory from teaching practitioners and to apply that theory on the job — sometimes the very next day.
