Cyber Security

Our organization recently finished a new website for students on the topic of cyber security. With many high-profile hacks grabbing national headlines there has been an increased interest in the field from both the government and students - Read more.

Despite this growing interest, we found there weren't many online resources discussing cyber security degree programs, so we developed our own: - CyberDegrees.org.

Here are a few features we're particularly proud of:

 - A full directory of cyber security degrees, from associate's degrees all the way to Ph.D programs http://www.cyberdegrees.org/listings/
 - Detailed looks into 20 careers related to cyber security, including job responsibilities, requirements, and growth opportunities http://www.cyberdegrees.org/jobs/
 - Tons of in-depth resources, including our complete guide to government security clearances (what they are, why they're given, and how to earn them) http://www.cyberdegrees.org/resources/security-clearances/

We're listed as a resource by the Department of Homeland Security's National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies and the Society of American Military Engineers, as well as universities including Boston University and the University of Pittsburgh, among others.
