Online Security & Loss Prevention Degrees

Security and Loss Prevention

In today's digital business world information is the watchword of the day. Access to information, the secure transfer of information, and databases managing the storage of information are critical to the daily operations of many organizations. With so much of our vital information tied up in ones and zeros the matter of theft has become both simpler and more complex. Tremendously valuable data can be carried off on the smallest of media, or emailed. With the digital age the problems of security and loss prevention have multiplied exponentially.

What's Covered in a Degree Program

IT security professionals are often well paid, particularly in larger organizations. The price for a lucrative career is paid in long hours of studying, training, and reading. A typical degree program in security and loss prevention might cover subjects such as:

  • Foundations of loss prevention
  • Management tools
  • Technology
  • Technical and human prevention measures
  • Detection and response

Earnings Potential for Security Professionals

Employers expect to see at minimum a bachelor's degree, if not a graduate degree, as well as considerable experience from applicants for security positions. In this profession your credentials become particularly important, from your degree to any certifications you hold. The more extensive the training you've completed the better your chances will be in this field. The National Association of Colleges and Employers reported in 2005 that persons with a graduate degree but less than a year in experience were offered starting salaries averaging $52,300 a year.
