A South Coast college is going to offer a new program which could help fill a gap in the technology field, and launch students into well paid careers. Oxnard College is set to launch a certified cybersecurity program in the Spring, 2021 semester.
College officials say there is a big shortage of cybersecurity analysts. They say the one year program will train students for high paying jobs which are available now.
A new Ventura County Grand Jury report says most of the municipal governments in the county are vulnerable to cyberattacks.
The report doesn’t disclose any specific weaknesses it discovered during its investigation, because it doesn’t want to make them public to potential hackers. But it notes that eight of the cities in the county have less-than-secure addresses for their websites.
