EY logoIn an increasingly digital business landscape, cybersecurity has emerged as an existential business risk. As a result, emerging business leaders need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills required to address the challenges of cyber risks and threats.

The Farmer School of Business is excited to partner with EY to develop and implement a strategic vision that will underpin the business cybersecurity programs. The gift from EY will help fund the initial five-year FSB cybersecurity initiative making it possible for the school to enhance its suite of cybersecurity offerings and continue the school’s tradition of setting the pace in designing innovative programs and curriculum that will position our students as dynamic business leaders.

The EY cybersecurity initiatives are aimed at:

  • Identifying “best practices” and developing unique cybersecurity programs and curriculum for the FSB students.
  • Developing research grant programs to incentives and encourage faculty cybersecurity research.
  • Identifying and building relationships with executive/corporate partners that will aid in program design and contribute resources.
  • Identifying and maintaining a cybersecurity speaker series and co-curricular programs across campus to inform faculty and students about emerging cybersecurity trends.
Currently, the Information Systems & Analytics department offers a “Cybersecurity Management” track within the Information and Cybersecurity Management Major and an “Information Security” Minor. The Cybersecurity Management track is a managerial focus on cybersecurity and risk management that organizations seek in all of their business units. For more information and requirements for the track and minor, please check out our program guide.
