The online Bachelor of Science in Cyber Operations program helps students understand how data breaches, malware infections, and software vulnerabilities occur. Students study the mentality, motivations, and techniques of the hackers that execute these attacks. You will also gain a strong base of programming, math, and networking, and then apply that knowledge to the most technical areas of cyber security. Graduates understand reverse engineering and know how to analyze malware and exploit software while discovering vulnerabilities in widespread computer systems.
