Cybersecurity Positions with the Federal Government

The Federal government is hiring a significant number of graduates into cybersecurity positions that are opening up in many agencies as a result of continued challenges protecting sensitive government and citizen data. Our Information Assurance and Cybersecurity certificate has launched many careers in Federal government employment. The most recent success story is a graduate from 3 years ago who is now being promoted to Director of an important program within the NSA. He is thrilled with his success and with the work. Stories like this are passed on to students to encourage them to consider conversations with NSA and DHS recruiters who come to campus. As an NSA/DHS Center of Excellence, we are in a position to help the Nation fill the void in cybersecurity expertise.
