Salem, VA– Do you already possess a bachelor’s degree in information technology or a related field or have a bachelor’s degree along with three years of experience in the information technology field? American National University is now offering a Master of Science in Cybersecurity at its Roanoke Valley Campus.

The master’s degree will provide the advanced theory and knowledge that is needed to address today’s increasing security issues and anticipate cyber threats of the future.  The program focuses on the advanced prevention, detection, countering and recovery from cyber incidents.  Students will learn how to use technical tools and organizational practices such as training, access control, security management, evidence collection, disaster recovery, and business continuity planning.  A student who completes the Master of Science in Cybersecurity will have the knowledge to become an industry leader who will be able to go from a traditional IT role to someone who designs and implements cybersecurity solutions.
