With a true passion in her multiple areas of study, Katherine Rexroad has been hooked on West Virginia University’s idea of thinking big since the beginning of her college career.
Cyberthreats are real, and affect everything from local small businesses to national-scale critical infrastructure utilities.
Trained cybersecurity professionals are crucial to maintaining and improving the confidentiality, integrity, availability, safety, and resilience of our information systems, data, infrastructure, assets, and people. The MS in Business Cybersecurity Management (CYBR) program will provide students with the knowledge, tools, and expertise to build, work within, or lead effective cybersecurity operations teams.
Our online CYBR program allows students to work in teams with expert faculty conducting hands-on technical labs, learning complex technologies while working with a flexible schedule and location independence. The program helps students get up to speed, while challenging those with deep technical expertise.
CYBR courses cover cutting-edge technical and management-focused topics and sub-fields within cybersecurity. Everything from cybersecurity data analytics, machine learning, security architecture to cryptography, penetration testing, software security, and more. You can even work with expert faculty on basic and applied cybersecurity research.
Experiential learning is a hallmark of the Chambers College, and the cornerstone of our CYBR program. Students will work on a live cybersecurity project with a major corporation, which allows students to display their abilities to their public or private team sponsors. Teamwork, research, resourcefulness, and problem-solving are key to the success in the capstone course, CYBR program, and the cybersecurity field at large.
Students can also graduate with at least two technical certifications along with their CYBR degree. While the goal is for students to pass the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) certification, material for eleven industry certifications are in the coursework. The certification expectations for graduation improve job placements for the students without extensive job experience.
