Milligan computer information systems

Milligan’s new cybersecurity major and minor blend the strengths of Milligan’s computer science curriculum with best practices from the National Security Agency to help students deepen their understanding of security concepts as they relate to the information technology and computer science fields.

While the cybersecurity field had experienced growth over the past decade, the recent pandemic elevated it to national prominence.  As employees and students transitioned to a home environment for work and learning, the need to protect sensitive and mission critical data was elevated.
