When the going gets tough, It’s time for school !

I don’t know about you, but I owe a big part of my education and career to my independent study and research because not many universities were offering Bachelor / Master Degrees in Information Security back then.

Times have changed and today I came across a very interesting online cybersecurity degree offered by the Utica College : it’s a Bachelor of Science degree in Cybersecurity and it provides two concentrations :

  • Cybercrime Investigations and Forensics
  • Information Assurance

Security vulnerabilities and threats have changed and the age-old saying “follow the money” seems more vivid than ever. The technology behind financial operations has induced a new breed of risks which must be addressed from both Accounting and Computer Science point of view.

In order to address this risk, Utica College offers an unique set of Economic Crime Degrees which focuses on Financial Investigation in order to detect and investigate fraud and other economic crimes.

It’s good to see that the academic world  is adapting to the security threats we face nowadays and I hope that more and more students will chose the path we got to love and hate everyday 🙂 . Only they won’t have to walk the same rough path thanks to new online education and training available today.

    Alas, when we were young, we thought we knew it all.
    Have you looked at the Forensics courses they teach?
    They are quite impressive. I think to myself, youre never to old to learn.
