Security is a critical component in modern society focusing on the reduction of risk to individuals, critical infrastructure, and assets. Security is achieved through enhancements in physical, cyber, operational, and other protective measures designed to deter, reduce, and mitigate threats and the resulting consequences. With rapidly evolving technology and increasing domestic and foreign threats, the need for knowledge and expertise in the field of security operations continues to grow.
Not only is security paramount in the public sector, but leading private sector corporations and businesses realize the devastating impact of security failures. Security shortcomings not only result in substantial economic loss, they impact corporations in other areas including: the loss of life, loss of information and trade secrets, damage to reputation, and interruptions in trade.
Given these high stakes circumstances, the demand for individuals with knowledge in security operations continues to rise, creating opportunities for students from diverse backgrounds and academic disciplines.
