About Webster's Cybersecurity Program
Webster’s new master’s degree program in cybersecurity was established in 2014 to help fill a staggering demand for cybersecurity training in the Colorado Springs area. The U.S. Air Force Space Command approached Webster to create the program because it has 1,400 employees who need training in cybersecurity.
The program prepares students to be well-versed to apply their knowledge and critical thinking related to domestic and international legal systems, private and public policies, and ethics. Skills in digital information protection, cyber terrorism, cyber fraud and theft, cyber intelligence and counterintelligence, digital forensics and pre-emptive and strategic force operation application situations are emphasized.
In May 2015, Webster University announced the launch of its Cyberspace Research Institute.
