About

Yeshiva University's MS in Cybersecurity is a STEM-approved 30-credit master’s degree, focused on the technology and management competencies for planning, implementing, upgrading, monitoring, and auditing cybersecurity protocols and procedures.

Overview

The degree is aligned with industry certifications: CISSP, CISM, and ISACA-CRISC, and teaches you state-of-the-art technologies and practices. You’ll get hands-on experience with threat mitigation, detection, and defense. You will also have the opportunity to gain practical experience through internships, CPT and STEM OPT.

Protecting an organization's information assets and technology infrastructure is critical, and requires hiring teams of cybersecurity professionals to protect against increasingly frequent attacks. According to a recent Gartner report, worldwide spending on information security products and services is forecast to reach $124 billion in 2019, an increase of almost 22% from 2017. Fueling this growth is the rapid evolution of cyber threats through the expansion of mobile device usage, the Internet of Things (IoT), machine learning, artificial intelligence, and drones. Additionally, evolving privacy and cybersecurity standards and regulations, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are driving demand for a new breed of cybersecurity professionals.
