Cyber Security

A masters refers to the completion of a graduate study program that prepares students to further their knowledge of a specific subject or advance their careers. The majority of masters are granted by state or public universities.

As more of the world relies on connecting through computers, the danger of theft and damage aimed at disrupting networks, software, or hardware grows. Cyber security is an industry that must adapt quickly to changing technology and safety concerns by safeguarding computers at every level.

Oceania consists of islands of the southern, western, and central Pacific Ocean, including Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. The term is sometimes extended to encompass Australia, New Zealand, and the Malay Archipelago.
