The challenge universities face when preparing students for successful careers in cybersecurity is going beyond teaching just tactical, near-term solutions. Instead, we must provide an interdisciplinary education that takes into account critical skills, the understanding of risk and governance, and the importance of work-study experience that addresses cybersecurity from many angles.These elements are woven throughout various programs at ASU, and prepare cyber-aware individuals who will thrive in a variety of situations.
