Security is an essential component that affects every aspect of how we use information technology. Successful protection of our data and electronic resources results from the integration of proper human actions, policies, procedures, computer software and hardware. As our dependency on technology increases, so does the importance of security for this infrastructure. Therefore, the need for well-trained cybersecurity professionals will exist for the foreseeable future.
