A Degree in Cybersecurity Can Change Your Career Outlook

A Degree in Cybersecurity Can Change Your Career Outlook

19 Mar. 2019

Securing a job in a career you love can be challenging. For Tanner Higley, a Cybersecurity student from Grantsville, Utah, learning to network from LDS Business College has enabled him to do just that.

“LDS Business College provides such great networking opportunities and training,” Tanner said. “I didn’t find that in the other schools I’ve attended.”

Tanner initially heard about LDS Business College through an article he read online which highlighted Cybersecurity – a relatively new field. LDS Business College was one of only a few schools to have adopted it at the time.

“I thought Cybersecurity sounded intriguing, and I wanted to give it a try,” Tanner said. “As I was considering jobs, I knew that I wanted to go into the IT field, but I wasn’t sure that I wanted to go into networking or programming. Cybersecurity just sounded like the perfect degree for me.”

Tanner recently secured a new job as a security operations analyst and looks forward to the challenges it will provide.

“There’s a lot to learn,” Tanner said. “You never know how much there is to learn until you come to know it. Overall, I’ve been very pleased with the Cybersecurity program at LDS Business College because it has prepared me for this job.”

LDS Business College’s mission is to develop capable and trusted disciples of Jesus Christ. Bringing spirituality to education and having teachers that truly care how their students are developing has helped Tanner.

“Knowing that we’re all focused on the same religious beliefs has been wonderful for me,” Tanner said. “I’ve been able to get to know a few of my teachers quite well throughout my education here. I feel comfortable asking them any questions I have – whether they be job or school related.”

Tanner will graduate next semester and says he has no regrets.

“I’m very pleased with what I’ve found at LDS Business College,” Tanner said. “I wouldn’t change a thing.”
