The Master of Science in Cybersecurity Management is a 30 credit-hour program at Nova Southeastern University's College of Engineering and Computing. Offered online and on-campus in South Florida, the Master of Science in Cybersecurity Management degree program is designed for individuals who want to focus on Security Policy Development and Compliance by obtaining the necessary skills and abilities for the development of organizational policies related to information assurance/cyber defense and the analysis of operational systems for compliance with applicable IA/CD-related laws and policies. If you want to focus on Network Security Engineering to ensure the security of organizational assets from the technical perspective, then you should look at the M.S. in Information Assurance & Cybersecurity.

The National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has certified that NSU's curriculum in information security meets or exceeds the requirements and standards expected of a leader in cybersecurity research and education. In particular, NSA and DHS recognized that NSU's graduate curriculum met the additional requirements for educational specializations in Network Security Engineering and Security Policy Development and Compliance  As a result of this recognition federal agencies may sponsor civilian and military personnel to take the school's certified graduate courses. Individuals may apply to take one or more certified information security courses as non-degree students. NSU is designated as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense (CAE/CD) education, and NSU’s CEC is hosting the Center for Information Protection, Education, and Research (CIPhER).
