Cyber attacks have become a national security issue. The challenges of securing the ever-growing quantity and value of online data continue to increase, and the stakes for protecting such data have never been greater. Our nation needs people who are skilled in keeping data secure. An important component of a healthy cyber defense is the ability to identify the causes of breaches after they happen to prevent the same kind of attack in the future. Systems of all kinds need people at the helm who understand both current and future threats to their operation and can counteract them. The Lewis University Master of Science in Information Security (MSIS) program will prepare you to do just that, and be ready for a challenging and well-paying career in information security.

"One of my favorite things about this program was the option to choose a concentration track. The technical track really helped me build a solid technical foundation, and my experience at Lewis was fantastic."
"Lewis' MSIS program was integral in me starting a new career. I would not have even been considered for my current position without graduating from the MSIS program. And the night classes allowed me to pursue my degree while working full time."
"Lewis' MSIS degree program provided me with the knowledge and skills required to establish a security consulting division in a firm that originally offered accounting and managed services."
"I came into the program thinking information security only addressed technical issues. Lewis' MSIS program opened up my eyes to the business, government, and social aspects of Information Security - which, in turn, opened my career paths wide open."
"Lewis' MSIS degree helped me obtain a new promotion, with additional responsibilities in the areas of Business Continuity and SOX Compliance."
