Cybersecurity Management (MS)
Cybersecurity vulnerabilities represent a significant risk to business and society at large. This creates a need for business professionals who understand business and cybersecurity.
The purpose of the Master of Science in Cybersecurity Management (MSCM) degree is to equip business professionals with the current knowledge and technical skills needed to develop organizational cybersecurity plans and risk management strategies, as well as managing the execution of those strategies. Additionally, the program targets cybersecurity technology professionals interested in advancing their careers into management.
MSCM students will prepare for career paths leading to positions such as cybersecurity manager, Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA), Cyber Security Analyst, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), and positions related to the Control Objectives for Information Technology (COBIT) framework. This degree will also be useful to managers needing to expand their understanding of cybersecurity so they can lead initiatives addressing issues such as the California Privacy Act of 2018 (effective in 2020), the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Risk Management, and Sarbanes Oxley.
The MSCM is the first graduate degree program of its type to be offered by a business school in the California State University (CSU) system and the second graduate program with a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) designation to be offered by the Fowler College of Business.
