According to Burning Glass, employer demand for cybersecurity professionals across the United State continues to accelerate: U.S. employers in the private and public sectors posted an estimated 313,735 job openings for cybersecurity workers between September 2017 and August 2018. The New York City Metro area has one of the largest number of job openings for cybersecurity professionals (20,243). Average salaries for core cybersecurity jobs range from $75,000 for a cybersecurity specialist/technician to $129,000 for a cybersecurity architect.

With that, the Department of Computer Science is pleased to offer a Cybersecurity (MS) degree starting fall 2019 to address the nationwide shortage of cybersecurity professionals.
