Clark University Launches Graduate Programs in Cyber Security
With a boom in the Internet revolutions, the world we live in is shrinking. Hence, we have the power to acquire information from any part of the world in lightening speed. But, along with the power comes the danger of becoming vulnerable to cyber attacks.
Everyday there are hundreds of cyber crimes being reported across the nation, but only a few possess the expertise to tackle and solve the crimes of the cyber world. To bridge this knowledge gap, many universities have started programs on Cyber security and crimes.
