    I did my bachelor's in Cyber at UMUC now I am going to do my master's there as well my friend goes there and he is twice my age going in Europe hybrid face to face / online he really likes it. I am 21 but I couldn't help but go into it since the program reduces my credits by 6 credits making the program go to 30 credits. It is a great program and it is heavily regarded for federal government service sometimes I wonder if they are the same thing o_O

    Just wondering. After all of the news about data breaches and, you know, that one Snowden guy . . . I have to wonder.

    What happens if you go into security and there's a massive breach on your watch? You're going to get blamed and fired, even if it wasn't your fault.

    Not sure if this is still a good career move.

    I completed WGU MS-Information Security Assurance in under 3 months (their fixed rate term officially covers 6 months). I did not have the ethical hacker or forensics investigator certs before I started, and waited 2 months to do them. Otherwise, the rest of the coursework can be done at your own pace, and if you have experience (and CISSP), it's very doable. I understand that the program is rigorous, so if a student lacks motivation, the program may take 2-3 years.

    This is me being easily obsessed, but I'm doing some hypothetical research for my very real 8th grade son who has expressed interest in cybersecurity as a potential career. This could change 1000 times before he's locked his sights on something, but I thought since I was doing research, that I'd share what I find. Furthermore, since I know -nothing- about this field, it's good to get feedback along the way.

    So, I'm poking around for my son:

    So, using Cyber's opening post, I limited my search to schools that the NSA map identified as CAE, and then limited to 2 year community college programs. Of that (short) list, I checked articulation agreements and CLEP policies for each. What I believe is the best of the group is Northern Virginia Community College www.nvcc.edu Now, it doesn't say online program, but it is pretty darn close if you're creative.

    NVCC has a really generous CLEP/DSST policy with equivalency documents on their webpage (love that) and they have very interesting articulation agreements. Not only do they guarantee transfer, but they guarantee admission.

    Now I went back through the NSA site for schools that were part of the guaranteed articulation agreement and were CAE. The winner in that group was Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech is one of the few that allowed credits earned in high school to actually count without strings. *when you're an adult, it doesn't matter, but as a high school student, some colleges/universities treat dual-enrollment differently. My son would be in high school while earning his AAS, so this is a factor.

    Virginia Tech has top notch on the ground programs, including an full tuition scholarship for anyone majoring in Computer Science or Computer Engineering willing to minor in Cybersecurity. *that's a winner*

    As a follow up, they also offer grad certs and MS options fully online.

    One other comment, the NVCC tuition for online/out of state is $325, for 100/200 level courses, ouch. Does CAE matter?

    thanks !
    annnnd, gah, requirements look so hard. It's more suited for on campus students who've been there for a long time.

    Could you please elaborate more on how you were able to get your MS-ISA in 3 Months. The reason, I am asking is to understand your background and see if I can pursue in your footsteps.

    I am basically from India, with 18 Yrs Exp in IT( Progressively moved from Development to Management). At present in US and I am thinking to pursue my Master's in ISA. I still need to complete my Educational Evaluation / TOEFL / GRE.

    I went through WGU 's site and most of the time I am getting confused and thought of taking help from others.

    Thanks

    Question

    Let me fork this thread just a bit - any PhD in Cybersecurity or digital forensics?

    I have a list from Ponemon Institute for 2014, but I am not sure it is of much value.

    I am aware of University of Rhode Island, University of Maryland.

    Any PhD in these fields online, by publication?

    Looked at the curriculum and lots of buzz words but the course objectives appear to be light.
