Written by Mark Sanchez | The university’s deeper dive into cybersecurity training comes as attacks are increasing at an “astounding” rate, said Matt Maines, the chief technology evangelist at Holland-based I.T. firm Worksighted Inc. That’s driving the need to have more professionals trained in the field to protect against hacks, viruses and attacks such as ransomware, according to Maines.
“The demand is building quite a bit,” he said. “(Having) education institutions to kind of step up and beef up some of their programs to address this is definitely attractive in the talent pool.
“The education is getting a lot more focused than what it was years ago.”
