Last spring, Bay Path University and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts teamed with Paragus IT to offer state-subsidized, low-cost audits to aid in cybersecurity efforts for local businesses. A $250,000 grant from the Commonwealth gives Bay Path students an opportunity to gain on-the-job experience helping small businesses protect their data and secure their networks. The first semester of the program was a success, and organizers are now recruiting businesses for the next round. As the first women’s college in the country to offer a master’s-degree program in cybersecurity management, Bay Path is on the leading edge of a rapidly growing field. Cybersecurity experts are in high demand at major companies around the world, and programs such as this go a long way toward preparing students to be competitive in a thriving job market.
