John Hopkins University – Online Master of Cybersecurity

Program Overview

According to John Hopkins University:

Students in the Cybersecurity program at Johns Hopkins Engineering for Professionals become proficient in ensuring the confidentiality, availability and integrity of data, in preserving and restoring systems, and in developing risk management skills. State-of-the-art computing facilities and tools are accessible either on-site or online. Combined with knowledge from instructors who are working to fight cybersecurity threats on the front lines, the continually evolving curriculum prepares students for lasting careers in this critical field. Upon completing the degree program, students will demonstrate proficiency in assessing enterprise security risk and formulating technical recommendations in the areas of both hardware and software; and demonstrate proficiency in four major areas of cryptology (encryption, hash functions, signature schemes, and authentication).
