You can make a difference in the fight against cyberattacks

Information technology infrastructure in hospitals, libraries, voter registration systems, city governments, and other organizations is increasingly under attack. Basic cybersecurity literacy is more vital than ever before for business leaders—and more than half of employers say they don’t have enough cybersecurity staff.

At Indiana University, you can train to become a part of the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. Our innovative Master of Science in Cybersecurity Risk Management program, a member of the IU Cybersecurity community, is the first in the nation to bring together three top-ranked schools to offer technology, business, and law viewpoints on cybersecurity. And you can earn your degree entirely online, or choose to take some classes at the IU Bloomington campus—it’s up to you.

Only the M.S. in Cybersecurity Risk Management from Indiana University will give you the unique—and valuable—ability to identify and mitigate a wide range of cyberthreats in your chosen career path. No matter where you are in your career, our M.S. program can get you to where you want to be.
