Expanded Programs in Response to Critical Shortages Cited by Governor

Manassas, VA – Last month, the Northern Virginia Technology Council hosted its first-ever Cybersecurity Summit. During the two-day event, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe was joined by Virginia Senator Mark Warner and Northrop Grumman Vice President Kathy Warden in calling for a greater effort to draw more people toward careers in cyber and network security.

Governor McAuliffe revealed the state had identified approximately 53 million cyber-attacks and stopped 47,000 instances of malware, but warned that there are simply not enough qualified cyber and network security professionals available to meet the ongoing threat.

That’s why ECPI University’s Northern Virginia campus is expanding its program offerings to include a Master of Science in Cybersecurity and a Bachelor of Science in Software Development degree.
