Online Computer Crime & Security Degrees

Computer Crime: A National Crisis
In a 2001 survey on computer crime conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice, 74% of companies surveyed reported being a victim of some kind of computer crime. Of those that detected security incidents, 68% reported losses totaling $61 million. Computer crime is a serious problem. If you already have a head for technology, and want to step up to the challenge offered by a new generation of criminals, consider earning your degree in computer crime and security.

Education
The complexity of computers networks all but demands formal training from a college or university. Basic courses will cover computing and networks, while more security-specific training addresses risk assessment, operating systems security, firewalls, virus protection, and disaster recovery. Advanced courses in computer crime and security will provide training in how to analyze and respond to numerous threats posed to computer systems and networks.

Prospects and Salary
As a graduate of a computer crime and security degree program, you will be ready for an entry-level position as a network security administrator. Lucky for you, there are plenty of positions to go around. Employment of systems administrators in general is expected to increase by 27% or more between now and 2014 Entry level workers in security administration can make as much as 47,000 to start. Continuing your training at the level of a master's degree can ensure further career development and salary increases, since most management positions favor those with master's degrees in computer science. So what are you waiting for? Do your part to crack down on computer crime. Get your degree today.
