WHY THIS MATTERS:
LBCC has one of the most notable cybersecurity programs in California. Enrolled students will learn Linux, Windows admin tools, as well as foundational and specialized cybersecurity skills. This is an innovative degree that hopefully will inspire other higher ed institutions to bring cybersecurity into sharper focus. As cyber threats loom ever larger, and the workforce gap increases dramatically, we have no time to waste.
