Welcome to the Cybersecurity Program Homepage
What is cybersecurity?
Basically, the tools and steps we take to keep equipment, such as computers, networks and other information safe, yet available to the people and customers who need them and stop those who shouldn't have access.
If you have more questions about what Cybersecurity is, the possibilities, careers offered our video will give a great simplistic view of this growing field. Watch it now! Click here for the Cybersecurity video
Why is this program so important that we would set aside funds, equipment and resources?
There is not a single place in the developed world that cybersecurity isn't a concern, not just for computers and networks but vulnerabilities within infrastructure. There is a global, national and local shortage of workers - millions of people are needed in this field. It is estimated we will be 3.5 million people short by 2021. The unemployment rate is 0%.
This field offers something for everyone. There are skilled positions, two-year and four-year degree options and they all pay very well.
Basha High School has partnered with Chandler Gilbert Community College to provide a dual enrollment pathway, starting in high school for students interested in computers and cybersecurity. We have done so to make a conscious effort to help meet the employment needs in our community and state.
