St. Thomas University Gets Grant for Cyber Degree

"Overall, it is estimated that there are 183 programs involved with cybersecurity at some level in the country today, according to a 2014 Best Schools for Cybersecurity study by the Ponemon Institute/HP Enterprise Security.

At St. Thomas in Miami, a $2 million grant is establishing the Gary Goldbloom Endowed Distinguished Chair in Cybersecurity, named after one of the university's trustees who is funding the program. It will allow St. Thomas to hire an cybersecurity industry expert.

The cybersecurity master's program will be available by early 2015, and the multidisciplinary degree will include broad contextual coursework -- even real-world hacking experience, according to Bhattacharya."
