PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] — Amid increasing concerns about data and computer security in industry and government, Brown University has launched a new Executive Master in Cybersecurity program enrolling now for the fall of 2016.
The 16-month program aims to produce security leaders with a deep understanding of the technological, legal, policy, and people issues surrounding cybersecurity. The program is designed for people with significant professional and managerial experience, and responsibility for security in business, education, financial services, government, healthcare, policy, regulatory, retail, or other sectors in which cybersecurity is an increasingly critical concern.
