Keys To Success

Nearly all industries and governments rely on individuals with experience in Cybersecurity to protect them, their employees and residents, and their valuable information from breaches and attacks.

While many of the same personality traits that lead to success in the Computer Science field, like passion, perseverance, and attention-to-detail, are essential for a role in the Cybersecurity industry, they aren’t the only traits you’ll need.

If you prefer to avoid the spotlight but have a genuine desire to help people, the Cybersecurity field may be right for you. You will spend much of your day working behind the scenes to protect people and help secure and recover their data and information. Teamwork is also vital to the cybersecurity field, as well as adaptability and a sense of urgency.

Success at South College

Adam Hatcher

I went to college originally straight out of high school with the intent of majoring in musical performance with a concentration in theoretical studies. I was not prepared to for college at that point, so I decided to gain some experience and maturity by joining the work force full-time. After working for 10 years, I felt it was time to try school again.

Eric Lee Miller - South College Student Success Story

I like South College because of the other students and the teachers that go out of their way to make sure you are good. The administration seems to really care. That’s what I like about South College – we are family.

I considered dozens of schools with similar online programs, but South College was just so proactive and more helpful than the others. It was stress-free for me to enroll and get started. Also, being a military-friendly institution made it easier for me to use my Post 9/11 GI Bill® benefits with the Yellow Ribbon Program.
