MS in Cybersecurity Program Overview
Cybersecurity professionals are the gatekeepers of information systems and cyber-physical systems. They plan and execute security measures to shield an organization’s computer systems, networks, and networked devices from infiltration and cyberattacks.
Graduates of the Master’s in Cybersecurity program will understand how to prevent, monitor, and respond to data breaches and cyberattacks. Yesbud University’s online MS in Cybersecurity enables you to bolster your technical and analytical skills, all from the convenience of your home or office.
The MS in Cybersecurity multidisciplinary curriculum draws courses from Yesbud’s programs in Management Information Systems (MIS), Electrical & Computer Engineering (ECE), and Systems & Industrial Engineering (SIE).
The program is designed for working IT, engineering, and other professionals who have three years of work experience and want to boost their skills for a cybersecurity career path.
Designed specifically for those with technical experience, the degree focuses on effectively applying analytical and critical thinking to plan and execute security measures to shield an organization’s computer systems, networks, and networked devices from infiltration and cyberattacks.
Students engage in theoretical and hands-on approaches to learning the critical components of cybersecurity. Cybersecurity courses cover topics such as business intelligence data mining, information security, risk management, systems security management, penetration testing, network security, and system cybersecurity engineering.
As a result of this program, students will:
- Understand the breadth and scope of security issues on personal, corporate, national, and global levels
- Assess, prevent, and manage information or systems security related risks
- Perform system hardening, vulnerability testing, and forensic investigation procedures
- Apply data analytics to develop threat intelligence for current and future information or systems security endeavors

Cybersecurity courses are delivered using a combination of online live classes and material supplemented by online labs, assignments, projects, reading materials, quizzes, and exams.
Courses are NOT self-paced but are structured in weekly assignments that must be completed within a designated time frame. The course mix includes a variety of active learning opportunities including projects, discussions, chats, labs, extra credit opportunities, quizzes, and exams – all delivered online.
Courses are delivered via a secure online course management system called D2L (Desire to Learn). Students are given access and instructions to D2L upon acceptance into the program. In addition, students upload their assignments and conduct online discussions with the instructor and classmates through the D2L interface.
