Advances in AI introduced new opportunities and challenges in cybersecurity in general. Social engineering, while contributing to the majority of cyber attacks, poses a uniquely difficult problem in cybersecurity because of a combination of factors.
Proliferating faster than any other labor sector, cybersecurity jobs are expected to have a 37% growth rate between 2018 and 2022, with experts vary in their estimates, projecting 1.5 to 3.5 million cybersecurity job openings by 2021. Recognizing the increasingly significant role of this sector in protecting both citizen’s and the nation’s security, this substantial workforce shortage could have damaging ramifications.
The failure to practice defensive, secure, robust, programming is one of the greatest challenges in cybersecurity today. The field of software development needs individuals who can write secure and robust code as well as continuously respond to constantly evolving threats and adapt system designs to new security needs. In order to do this, software developers need a deep understanding of the foundational concepts in secure programming.
As computational and data-driven modeling spreads through almost all disciplines, security of campus cyber infrastructure (CI) is becoming increasingly important not only to protect intellectual property, but to secure a competitive advantage. Growth in facilities and projects funded by industrial partners and US government agencies creates new requirements in information security and assurance.
