M.Jur. in Cyber and Data Security Law

Cyber and data security talent gaps exist across the country and professionals at Burning Glass Technologies  predict that we are approaching an upward tick in demand for cybersecurity subject-matter-experts at least in the short term, on top of the widening gap, due to externalities cause by the ongoing COVID pandemic, and Cyberseek provides a dynamic tool showing that growth by state and region.

Closing these gaps requires municipalities and corporations to upfit their staffing with professionals versed in the detailed knowledge of cyber and data security best practices. Salaries within this industry are also on the rise as documented by Payscale. Are you ready to increase your professional responsibility or pivot into the field of cyber and data security? We have the master’s program for you.
