The mission of the Cybersecurity program is to equip future cybersecurity experts with both valuable technical skills and strong ethical foundations steeped in our tradition of Christian liberal arts. Malone’s philosophy of education that emphasizes life-long learning is doubly important here, as it not only serves as a key to a fulfilling and meaningful life, but is an important aspect of professional life in a career that continues to change rapidly.
