The economic impact of cyber crime is growing: In 2022, the average cost to businesses affected by a data breach in the United States was $9.44 million, more than double the global average.2

You can help protect organizations and populations — and change your entire career trajectory. As the world becomes more connected and automated (and therefore, more vulnerable), the demand for cybersecurity specialists is on the rise. Information security is a fast-growing field,1 and was one of Glassdoor’s Top 50 Jobs in America for 2022.3
