Cyber crime is on the rise, and the need to safeguard against cyber security attacks is real – and growing. No industry is exempt and the demand for experts who can battle using bits and bytes has never been greater. Maryland has become a hub of cybersecurity activity and the university is leading the way.
In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business, Sandor Boyson talks about the critical need for cybersecurity. Boyson is research professor and co-director of the Supply Chain Management Center at the Smith School. He is also the academic co-director of a new cybersecurity certificate program the Smith School is launching in partnership with the university’s A. James Clark School of Engineering and the School of Public Policy.
Smith Business Close-Up is co-produced by the Robert H. Smith School of Business and Maryland Public Television. The television segment focuses on the latest thinking in business management, and features in-depth interviews with Smith School faculty and other members of the school’s community of business leaders.
