A Women’s College to Offer a New Undergraduate Major in Cybersecurity Risk Management

Bay Path University, a women’s college in Longmeadow, Massachusetts, has announced that it is launching a new undergraduate major in risk management and cybersecurity. The new program will include coursework in data privacy, project management, crisis management, and incident recovery. Women students will be instructed on forecasting and evaluation of risks as well as procedures to avoid or minimize their impact.

“Bay Path’s risk management degree is designed for women who enjoy collaborating to proactively identify risks and guard against cyberthreats,” said Beverly Benson, program director for information technology and security at Bay Path University. “This degree will enable women to combine valued skills and insights like problem solving, creativity, collaboration, communication and leadership, and essential technical knowledge to develop and implement risk-management strategies for an incredibly exciting and rewarding career.”

Benson is a graduate of Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, Connecticut, where he majored in business administration. She holds a master’s degree in cybersecurity management from Bay Path University.

Bay Path University enrolls about 1,900 women in undergraduate programs and just over 1,500 students in its co-educational graduate programs, according to the latest data supplied to the U.S. Department of Education.
