Man and woman in front of computerGovernment agencies and organizations worldwide transmit huge amounts of sensitive data across networks and to other devices every day, in the course of simply doing business. Financial files, national security information, and health records are just a small sampling of the data that is constantly at risk of cyberattack. Who is responsible for safeguarding this information? Cyber security specialists.

In terms of job growth for this group of professionals, the future looks bright. In fact, the demand for information security analysts is projected to grow 18% between 2014 and 2024, much faster than average.* But will we have enough experts to handle the job market’s growth? While that is yet to be determined, the National Security Agency (NSA) is doing its part to help ensure the next generation of workers is cyber-savvy.   

NSA’s Day of Cyber is a national initiative designed to raise the national IQ for STEM and cyber science. The goal of this online experience is to inspire middle school, high school, and college students to pursue STEM careers and build the skills that will open up their future and connect them to the in-demand digital workforce.  

Free to students, teachers, schools, and organizations, this self-paced and self-guided interactive experience allows individuals to test-drive their future in cyber security by experiencing a day in the life of six NSA cyber security leaders. In addition, participants can explore careers, learn by experiencing true-to-life cyber situations, build STEM skills, and more.

Experience a Day of Cyber for yourself.
