Recent advancements in cybersecurity, mobile technology and artificial intelligence have opened new doors in the current Information Age. Here’s how:
Cyber attacks are becoming more and more common. The more we store sensitive data online, the more advanced our cybersecurity needs to be to protect it. According to idtheftcenter.org, there were 781 data breaches in 2015, with the average total cost of a data breach around $3.8 million. These numbers highlight the need for cybersecurity protocols, which is exactly where a degree in computer science comes in handy. Depending on the specialization, studying computer science can help boost cybersecurity processes for health care, financial institutions, and government agencies, to name a few.
