EC-Council University builds on the recognition and strengths of its parent corporation, The International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants, also known as EC-Council, a globally recognized IT certification body specializing in cyber security and e-business.

The focus of the Master of Science in Cyber Security program is to provide students with a strong and solid foundation in cyber security as well as preparation in management and leadership.

The Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security is a degree completion program that helps students obtain the knowledge needed for careers in cyber security. The cyber security bachelor’s degree covers topical areas that deal with cyber security management, incident response, and security threat assessment, which requires students to be creators of knowledge and inventors of processes, not merely users of information. With this online cyber security bachelor’s degree, students will receive instruction in leadership and management to help them prepare to assume managerial and executive positions in the industry.

Note: A degree completion program is an academic program specifically designed to give students who have started, but not finished, a four-year undergraduate degree the opportunity to complete and earn their Bachelor’s degree. Most degree completion programs will allow students to transfer some, or all their credits previously earned from other programs and/or institutions. These programs provide students a cost-effective and timely option to complete and earn their Bachelor’s degree without having to start a new program from the beginning.

Focuses on the competencies necessary for cyber security professionals to become managers, directors and CIOs.

Be future ready to make an impact in the growing cyber security sector

Opportunities in cyber security are growing faster than employers can fill evidenced by the statistics the industry had projected in 2019, indicating a shortfall of 1.5 million information security professionals. A Cisco Report Annual Security Report as early as in 2014 had showed that with cyber-attacks and data breaches increasing each year, there will be a global shortage of information security professionals by up to one million professionals in the US alone. An online cyber security degree from ECCU will prepare you for a career in this fast-growing cyber security space and meet the challenging requirements.

Boost Career in Cyber Security

Experts estimate that the cyber security market worldwide has grown from $77 billion in 2015 to $170 billion in 2020, largely because cyber attacks cost businesses between $400 to $500 billion a year. These estimates don’t include many unreported cyber-attacks. For example, the Heartbleed security bug, which stung many corporations in 2014, led to catastrophic consequences. ​

You can Enroll for an Online Cyber Security Bachelor’s Degree or an Online Cyber Security Master’s Degree from ECCU to steer the world from ruthless cyber attacks.

Need for Cyber Security Courses

Experts in cyber security are fewer than the demand. According to estimates, over 200,000 U.S. cyber security jobs are unfilled, and with our online, asynchronous courses, you can be a part of this emerging industry.
