The University of Tampa's cybersecurity degree is a relevant, challenging program where students learn to protect the confidentiality, availability and integrity of information and information systems that support modern organizations. Students acquire a comprehensive education that focuses on both the fundamentals of information systems as well as advanced topics in areas such as network security, cryptography, risk management, security governance, business continuity, security architecture, physical security and critical infrastructures. 

A key feature of the UT cybersecurity program is that it prepares students to take the Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) exam, as well as other relevant professional certifications. The program also gives students extensive hands-on experience using industry standard tools in a modern cybersecurity lab. Demand for certified security professionals is expected to rise as global commerce and modern society becomes increasingly dependent on information systems and related technologies. UT's cybersecurity degree develops students to be leaders in the growing cybersecurity field and employed by prominent organizations worldwide.
