The U.S. Naval Academy is planning to introduce a cybersecurity major for undergraduates that it hopes to have fully accredited within four years. Academy officials are in talks with Navy brass as part of an effort to attract as much as $100 million for a cybersecurity center. "Though this timeline is not definite yet, if we are successful, this would mean that the current plebe class would be able to select cyber operations as their major later this year and then begin taking classes within that major next fall," said Boyd Waite, vice academic dean.
