The shortage of skilled and qualified cybersecurity professionals is one of the biggest issues facing our Internet-connected world today. RIT is helping to close this gap as a leader in computing security education. Professionals who gain the skills and tactics needed to defend against the next generation of security threats will be better prepared for careers at IBM and other organizations in the cybersecurity industry.
