Is it best to take the path of Business Cyber Security or under Computer Science Cyber Security?
During a college visit at UTSA, one element of cyber security was under the umbrella of the School of Business. The other was under the umbrella of Computer Sciene. Which would you recommend as the best path to follow? #business #science #computer #security #cyber
To me it really depends on how you think and understand data. If you are more of a business flow / analytic person the Business degree might be better way. However if you have the mind set of a developer, and are good with Computer Science then that might be the way to go. There is a need in both areas, so pick the one you feel you will do better with, at least to start.
This field is very hot so go for it if you like it.
I suspect you would have to go down to the class level, I suspect some of the classes will be in both Schools. In (Cyber) Security, you have the management path, technical path, or a rare path of both, sometimes call converged. Key is constant education, certification, professional networking and always understanding the your top 1-2 things you are protecting for your audience.
Either option would be an excellent choice since cyber security is such an incredibly hot, in-demand career. Since it is such a technical skill, I would recommend the computer science degree. However, for your elective classes, I would recommend taking all the business classes you can take. Even better, business minor. That rounds out your education.
Best of luck and absolutely go for it!
