SUBJECT: Adults find greater need for cybersecurity education as cyber threats rise
Dear [Insert Person or Organization Here],
With cybersecurity threats seemingly on the rise, U.S. adults ages 18 and up are finding it more necessary to have a background in cybersecurity. Trinity College Online found that 88 percent of 1,004 surveyed adults were very or somewhat concerned about cybersecurity threats impacting them personally.
With 68 percent of respondents confident in colleges’ and universities’ abilities to create solution to address cyber threats, 41 percent initially said that they’d probably or definitely considering returning to college to earn a certificate or degree to prepare for a career in cybersecurity. That number increased to 72 percent when the education was employer funded.
I want to offer you a conversation with Melissa Hyde, chair of cybersecurity programs at Trinity College Online. Working within a school that’s a leader in online higher education as reported by the U.S. News & World Report, she’ll be able to discuss how higher education plays a role in combatting cyber threats
Melissa Hyde will be available for an interview regarding the program and degree requirements next Tuesday, March 26 at 12:30pm.
