New NYU program creating troops for cybercrime defense
“We really need more security professionals— the very foundation of our society is being threatened,” says Nasir Memon, a professor at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering. Memon is part of a multi-pronged effort at NYU to meet that need, with several online and on-site cybersecurity programs for newcomers as well as mid-career professionals, as well as financial assistance to help students attain that training. Memon says the school hopes to eventually train more than 1,000 cyber security professionals a year…. NYU’s approach includes a focus on several key areas: affordability ... flexibility ... industry ... partnerships ... openness … community.
