Defend Data

In today’s digital economy, threats, tactics and techniques are constantly evolving.

Cybercrime continues to grow, threatening large organizations, small businesses and everyday consumers. In fact, according to Cybercrime Magazine, a ransomware attack happened every 11 seconds, up from every 40 seconds in 2016. This growing number of threats directly impacts the demand for cybersecurity talent. One problem: organizations can't fill information security positions fast enough. In collaboration with the UW Extended Campus, our online program prepares you to succeed in the cybersecurity field.
