In a world of increasing security breaches among various industries, the benefits of studying cyber security-and cyber security salaries-are growing now more than ever. Without cyber security professionals to keep technology systems running smoothly, business and progress can be slowed or stopped. There are currently over 300,000 unfilled cyber security positions in the country, and that number is estimated to grow at a rate of 37% per year over the next five years!

Student Success

Cyber Security Student Perspective

Katrina Love ‘19, Former Soldier in the U.S. Army Reserve, chose Albertus because of the faculty and the overall welcoming feeling that they truly care about the direction of her education.

“As a woman in the tech world, I’ve noticed that there aren’t many of us. That’s why I’ve worked so hard to get the most out of my education.

I want to set an example for generations, for all women, to let them know that they can do it too.

Don’t be afraid. The world is waiting for you!”

Katrina plans to become a Senior Front End Developer, pursue a Master's Degree and someday start her own web design business.
