Online Cybersecurity Program Proves Popular

A new online cybersecurity degree program – being offered by the University of Maryland this fall – saw the enrollment of over 200 students on just the first day it was offered. Graduates will be trained to defend against cyberattacks, from both technical and policy-setting standpoints.

University officials anticipate thousands will enroll. Because the course work is completely online, most of the students enrolled are expected to be working professionals looking to change careers.
