Cyber Leadership and Intelligence (BS)

Dr. Stacey Berry

Our Cyber Leadership and Intelligence major (offered on campus and online) combines courses on digital forensics with courses on world affairs and human behavior.  Increasingly, those defending computer networks and investigating cyber-attacks need to understand people and their cultures in order to understand the intent of the attackers and effectively defend information. This degree provides a solid preparation for those seeking a professional career leading people to develop successful strategies to conduct digital forensic investigations. At the same time, it will introduce you to leadership concepts and practices, professional ethics, and you’ll develop expert communication skills.
