Cyber ​​Security Program

Head of Department Message

The Cybersecurity Program is one of the College of Computer and Informatics Sciences programs at Amman Arab University. One of the latest trends in information technology depends on the rapid development of digital infrastructures, such as computers, servers, networks, information systems, and others. It needs to be crystallized on the safety of networks, information, and people to adopt a more comprehensive concept of digital security, later called cyber security or cyberspace security.


Cyber security is all the technical, organizational, and administrative means used to prevent the exploitation and unauthorized use of systems, devices, and equipment by others. It helps to ensure the continuity of the operation of information and applications and systems, enhance the protection, confidentiality, and privacy of personal data, and take all necessary measures to protect people and users from any risks when using any of the components of cyberspace.
The cybersecurity program is one of the programs that will change the pattern of data protection for companies and businesses. It was developed for its unique advantage and the lack of specialists in meeting the needs of the local and regional technological market. Thus, qualified student competencies in the field of cybersecurity will be prepared to meet the needs of the labor market locally and regionally, capable of completing distinguished scientific and practical projects in a way that contributes to developing technical infrastructure, strengthening the knowledge economy, and developing Improving performance in local community institutions.

With the explosion of the information revolution and the advent of the digital age, especially in the 21st century, and its many repercussions due to the emergence of cyber threats and crimes, it has become a significant challenge for national as well as international security to the extent that many researchers considered cyberspace as the fifth field in wars after land, sea, air, and space. This necessitated the need for security guarantees within this digital environment, which crystallized mainly in the emergence of cyber security as a new dimension within the field of security studies. It has gained the interest of many researchers in this field.


Graduates of the Cybersecurity program can work locally and globally in several fields, the most important of which are:
• Analyst, engineer, and security systems executive.
• Intrusive Security and Malware Analyzer.
• Network security engineer and security observer.
• Smart security software developer.
• System, network, and web penetration lab.
In light of the preceding, the Bachelor’s Program in Cyber Security is an urgent national need to supplement the national and regional labor market and learn about the latest information and communication technology developments in protecting wireless networks and preventing their penetration.
 

About the Program

About the Bachelor of Cybersecurity
