BYU's new Cybersecurity program, launched in Fall 2018, is the first undergraduate cybersecurity degree available in Utah. As a recognized Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education, BYU is helping meet the growing deficit of cybersecurity professionals within the United States, and around the World. The Cybersecurity program is closely related to the BYU Information Technology (IT) Program and students are currently able to transfer between majors with relative ease.

Cybersecurity is a computing-based discipline involving technology, people, information, and processes to protect computing systems from adversaries. It involves the creation, operation, analysis, and testing of secure computing systems. It is an interdisciplinary course of study, including aspects of law, policy, human factors, ethics, and risk management in the context of adversaries. BYU's Cybersecurity program is recognized as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense by the NSA/DHS.
