While the Internet has an abundance of information and helpful resources, it comes with a possible threat to personal and corporate security. As a result, jobs in the field of cyber security are increasing in importance, and California University of Pennsylvania is responding to the need for more trained professionals.

According to the Pittsburgh Business Times, the school will offer a graduate-level program in cyber security in summer 2015. The master's program will be available entirely online, and students will be able to participate in an 18-month or 24-month program. The announcement comes just in time for National Cyber Security Awareness Month.

Those interested in pursuing a job in cyber security are encouraged to be sure that it's in line with their passion, noted The Washington Post. It's a growing field that is highly demanding and ever-changing. In addition to a relevant degree, applicants are at a better advantage of landing a job if they also have experience in military or law enforcement and regularly attend industry events to stay up to date on the newest advancements. Professionals are regularly subjected to background checks and are also held to a higher standard when it comes to their online profiles. They need to take extra caution with what they post on social media, since their reputation and credibility is constantly under scrutiny.
