Introduction to Cybersecurity

Experts predict the cost of cybercrime will reach $6 trillion by 2021, up from $3 trillion in 2015.  Some have called cybercrime the “number one problem for mankind,” compounded by a shortage of cyber professionals forecasted to reach 3.5 million by 2021. The Networking Academy is preparing students to fill that gap with rewarding careers that will help make the world a safer place
